ElapsedEventHandler Delegate

ElapsedEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the Elapsed event of a Timer.

Namespace: System.Timers
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public delegate void ElapsedEventHandler (
	Object^ sender, 
	ElapsedEventArgs^ e
)
/** @delegate */
public delegate void ElapsedEventHandler (
	Object sender, 
	ElapsedEventArgs e
)
JScript supports the use of delegates, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

sender

The source of the event.

e

An ElapsedEventArgs object that contains the event data.

When you create an ElapsedEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.

#using <system.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Timers;

public ref class Timer1
{
public:
   static void Demo()
   {
      // Normally, the timer is declared at the class level, so
      // that it doesn't go out of scope when the method ends.
      // In this example, the timer is needed only while Demo
      // is executing. However, KeepAlive must be used at the
      // end of Demo, to prevent the JIT compiler from allowing 
      // aggressive garbage collection to occur before Demo
      // ends.
      System::Timers::Timer^ aTimer = gcnew System::Timers::Timer;

      // Hook up the Elapsed event for the timer.
      aTimer->Elapsed += gcnew ElapsedEventHandler( Timer1::OnTimedEvent );
      
      // Set the Interval to 2 seconds (2000 milliseconds).
      aTimer->Interval = 2000;
      aTimer->Enabled = true;

      Console::WriteLine("Press the Enter key to exit the program.");
      Console::ReadLine();

      // Keep the timer alive until the end of the Demo method.
      GC::KeepAlive(aTimer);
   }


private:
   // Specify what you want to happen when the Elapsed event is 
   // raised.
   static void OnTimedEvent( Object^ /*source*/, ElapsedEventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Hello World!" );
   }

};

int main()
{
   Timer1::Demo();
}
