I have an application whitch write some data in one database. External program change one field and I must check this field status for 30 seconds. I'd like to do this in backgroud, because user must work normally. After that 30 seconds pop up appears that record was changed or not. How to accomplish that?

Thank, Benjamin

Either use multithreading or use a timer and put the code(that has to be called after each 30 seconds ) in the timer tick event.
