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

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.
