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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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?
