Hi Fellow DNN users,

I am trying to get the DNN scheduler to run, and I am struggling.

I have copied the code from http://www.wwwcoder.com/tabid/68/type/art/parentid/224/site/6401/default.aspx however it doesn't just work.

I am not getting any history happening, and the Job I have created fSetWindow, adds a row to a table, but it is not doing anything either.
I am not getting any exception errors, I don't believe it is being hit at all.

Project Name:WWT_DNN
File Name: WWT_Schedule
DLL Name: WWT_DNN.dll

Code Below

See attached for DNN Scheduler settings
Imports System.Configuration
Imports DotNetNuke
Imports System.Web
Imports WWT_dnn_Functions.Functions
 
Namespace WWT_DNN
 
    Public Class WWT_Schedule
 
        Inherits DotNetNuke.Services.Scheduling.SchedulerClient
 
        Public Sub New(ByVal objScheduleHistoryItem As DotNetNuke.Services.Scheduling.ScheduleHistoryItem)
            MyBase.New()
            Me.ScheduleHistoryItem = objScheduleHistoryItem
        End Sub
 
        Public Overrides Sub DoWork()
            Try
                For i = 0 To 1000000000
 
                Next
 
                fSetWindow(strType:="Send", UserID:=1, iCreditsHold:=0, CodeID:=1, MobileID:=1, iMins:=180)
 
                Me.ScheduleHistoryItem.AddLogNote("RSS Incremental Build Suceeded")
                Me.ScheduleHistoryItem.Succeeded = True
            Catch ex As Exception
                Me.ScheduleHistoryItem.Succeeded = False
                Me.ScheduleHistoryItem.AddLogNote("Index build failed. " & ex.ToString)
                Me.Errored(ex)
            End Try
 
        End Sub
 
    End Class
 
End Namespace

Another question have you checked event viewer to see if something is going wrong in your class ?

Hi,

DNN v 4.9.1

I am not sure how to view event viewer? Can you explain that a little?
I have had a look at Event Viewer, I can't find anything to do with it?

Thanks

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.

admin -> event viewer

Just to be sure, what have you on host settings "Scheduler mode", you can see it by HOST->HOST settings, open section "OTHER SETTINGS"

Hi
I have no errors in the event viewer in DNN.

Scheduler Mode is set to "Request Mode" in Host Settings>Other Settings
The other option is "Timer Method"

I've done a test on my dnn installation, I used your code with a little changes to avoid importing library WWT_dnn_Functions.Functions,
everithing seems to work, the only difference is that in the full class name I wrote "WWT_DNN.WWT_Schedule", without specifying the assembly because I used a .vb in AppCodde folder

i suppose you haven't nothing in history, isn't it ?

Hi Paolo,

Thanks for that.  I copied the .vb into the AppCode folder, and recreated the Schedule Item, without the assembly name, and wackydo.... it worked.
I now have schedule history, and the job I have (updating a Db table) is working too, every minute.
You where right, I was not getting any history at all before.
Thanks.

Why does it not work as specified in the websites where I found this code? Any Ideas?

I think could be a namespace or assembly name issue, but if you have a WWT_DNN.dll file on your bin folder I don't see any mistake, or could be caused by the context in which method DoWork is called, try to change to "timer mode" to execute outside the user request context.

I tried the timer method already, that didn't work either.

Thanks for all your help, appreciate it.
