How do you start a timer with AJAX?


I have codebehind handing the Timer.Tick event, yet this never gets called....

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" MasterPageFile="~/Default.Master" CodeBehind="progress.aspx.vb" Inherits="UI.progress" 
    title="XXXXXXXXXX - Progress" %>
 
<%@ Register Assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
    Namespace="System.Web.UI" TagPrefix="asp" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="BodyPanel" runat="server">
    <asp:UpdatePanel id="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
        <Triggers>
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="Timer1" EventName="Tick" />
        </Triggers>
        <contenttemplate>
            <asp:Timer id="Timer1" runat="server" __designer:dtid="5066549580791809" __designer:wfdid="w10" Interval="3000" OnTick="Timer1_Tick">
            </asp:Timer>
            <BR />
            <asp:Panel id="pnlOutput" runat="server" Width="858px" Height="100%" __designer:wfdid="w9"> </asp:Panel> 
            <BR />
            <asp:Label id="lblMasterProgress" runat="server" Width="170px" Text="Progress - 0.0%"></asp:Label> 
        </contenttemplate>
    </asp:UpdatePanel>
    <asp:Button ID="btnCancelOrContinue" runat="server" Text="Abort" Width="123px" />
</asp:Content>

the whole page (ie. you have maybe a small popup page with the progress in it)? or just part of a page and you want to use ajax to update it?

just a page and i want to use ajax to update it,

the panel, pnlOutput, has rows of a pair of labels added at: label1 in each row has the the name of the item and the label2 shows % complete for that item. The number of rows varies and so I can't add them to the page in the designer. I am storing them in the session along with an array of business objects. In the tick event I am reloading the progress count from each object in the array and refreshing the text on the second label in each row.

The problem is the Timer1.Tick event never fires. I added a refresh button which runs the same code as the Timer1_Tick function and when I click refresh it works nicely. However I can't get the Timer to tick.

there is no pont using ajax to post back a whole page... thats just a normal page postback!
so i'll ask again: do you want to update the -whole- page or just part of it?
