Hi!

I am writing an application for scheduling database queries, dtsjobs and store procedures. I am launching a lot of Timer objects. I store their ToString() sentences into a string variable which I later save on my SQL Server. However I do need to be able to dispose() all these System.Threading.Timer in the event of a rescheduling task being launched by a user.

In short:

How do I find a specific Timer from its ToString(). Or any ideas on how to do this otherwise?


Cheers,
Peter
