WebPart.RenderWorkItemTimeout method

NOTE: This API is now obsolete.

Renders HTML in a Web Part when a work item has timed out.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("Use Page.RegisterAsyncTask instead.")]
protected virtual void RenderWorkItemTimeout(
	HtmlTextWriter writer


Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter

An HtmlTextWriter object that defines the output to render when a work item times out.

If a Web Part does not override the RenderWorkItemTimeout method, a default system error message is rendered. The timeout setting is specified by the value of the Timeout attribute of the <WebPartWorkItem> tag that is contained within the <SharePoint> tag in the web.config file.

The following code example shows how to override the RenderWorkItemTimeout method.

using System;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Threading;
using System.Xml.Serialization;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages;

namespace ExampleWebParts
    public class WorkItemSample : Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart
        string log="";
        ManualResetEvent mre = new ManualResetEvent(false);

        public WorkItemSample()
            this.PreRender+=new EventHandler(CreateThread);

         private void CreateThread(object o, EventArgs e)
            RegisterWorkItemCallback(new WaitCallback(DoWork), null);

        // Sleep for 4 seconds to simulate doing work
        private void DoWork(object o)
            log+="hello from the thread pool!<BR>";

        protected override void RenderWebPart(HtmlTextWriter output)

        protected override void RenderWorkItemTimeout(HtmlTextWriter output)
            output.Write ("Timed out");
