C# ASP.Net Threads

Last Modified: 2013-12-17
Hello Experts,

I have a problem with the Thread.Sleep() method. I have a button event on a popup WebForm that executes a stored procedure and then returns a status message. What I'm attempting to do is close the WebForm a few seconds after the message has displayed.

What I'm actually getting is, the Webform will close as required, but the status message doesn't appear. Removing the Thread.Sleep command and the Response.Write command, does show the status message. Can anyone identify what I'm doing wrong from the code snippet supplied?

protected void btnCommit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // Do Some Work
            lblMessage.Text = "Done";

        // I've removed specific catch blocks

        catch (Exception exp)
            lblMessage.Text = "There was an error, please see log file";
