Timer Constructor (IContainer)

Initializes a new instance of the Timer class together with the specified container.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Timer(
	IContainer container
)

Parameters

container
Type: System.ComponentModel.IContainer

An IContainer that represents the container for the timer.

The Timer constructor enables you to associate a Timer with any Container object. By associating the Timer like this, you hand over control of the lifetime of the Timer to the Container. This can be useful if you use a number of components in your application and want to dispose of all of them simultaneously. For example, if you associate a ToolTip, an ImageList, and a Timer with a Container, calling Dispose on the Container will force disposal of all of these components as well.

When a new timer is created, it is disabled; that is, Enabled is set to false. To enable the timer, call the Start method or set Enabled to true.

This instance will exist until its container releases it to garbage collection.
