DataSet update via a TIMER

Hi, I cannot seem to get a textbox to update on the timer value - the record count should go up and down, but it just stays the same:

...CODE FOR TIMER1
        Dim ready As String
   
        DataReadyPallets1.GetChanges()
        SqlDataAdapter1.Update(DataReadyPallets1)
        SqlDataAdapter1.Fill(DataReadyPallets1)
        ready = DataReadyPallets1.tblpallets.Rows.Count.ToString
        TextBox1.Text = " READY PALLETS: " & ready
        TextBox2.Text = Now()
...END

I know I am doing something foolish, but no time to figure it out.  Thanks!

The GetChanges method returns a DataTable object.  You need to pass that into your Update method like this:


    SqlDataAdapter1.Update(DataReadyPallets1.GetChanges())

Hi,

This now causes an exception error and crashes the program :

      Dim ready As String

        SqlDataAdapter1.Update(DataReadyPallets1.GetChanges())     <-- NULL EXCEPTION ERROR.
        ready = DataReadyPallets1.tblpallets.Rows.Count.ToString
        TextBox1.Text = " READY PALLETS: " & ready
        TextBox2.Text = Now()

Also, the textbox2 is rfreshing OK - its a data issue.

        ready = DataReadyPallets1.tblpallets.Rows.Count.ToString
        TextBox1.Text = " READY PALLETS: " & ready

That just hides the error, it doesn't fix the problem :-(

Private Sub Timer1_Elapsed(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Timers.ElapsedEventArgs) Handles Timer1.Elapsed

        Dim ready As String

        Try
            SqlDataAdapter1.Update(DataReadyPallets1.GetChanges())
            ready = DataReadyPallets1.tblpallets.Rows.Count.ToString
            TextBox1.Text = " READY PALLETS: " & ready
            TextBox2.Text = Now()
        Catch exp As System.ArgumentNullException
            TextBox1.Text = "Update Error."
        End Try
    End Sub
