Sorry for crosspost - cant figure out timer issue...


J Snaith

Very sorry for reposting same message. I cannot figure out this concern

Good day. I have page in that gets set of photos records
from a database table (paths to photos). Loads that data into session
datatable, divide into parts and display each part at timer interval. For
eg. every 7 seconds display first 5 (of 20) photos in datagrid, then
next set of 5, then next set of 5 photos, etcetera. When all 20 photos have
been displayed (paged) I want to show new panel for 7 seconds (pnlWarning).
Hide pnlViewPhotos and show pnlWarning. Then, start loop again and start
displaying paged photos again (in pnlViewPhotos). Then after 20 display
warning again, etcetera. I have the code working well to page photos but
cannot determine where to show pnlWarning panel and hide other panel for the
7 seconds after all photos displayed, then start displaying photos again
after 7 seconds of making pnlWarning visible=true. Could you please take
look at following code snippet and please advise where I may accomplish this
tasks? Any direction you have would be appreciate and of great help. Thank
you and have fantastic day.
