I have a timer on my page that is disabled and the interval on the timer is 1000

I assume that's milliseconds?

On a click event I want to

Timer1.Enabled = True
Timer1.start()

run for 15 seconds

Timer1.Stop
Timer1.Enabled = False

add integer field in your class and set it to 0.
on the timer elapse event handler add 1 to the integer field each time.
also check if the field equals 15, if yes then stop the timer and set .Enabled = false, and reset the integer field to 0 again.

My suggestion would be...

In the Click event put the code
Timer1.Interval = 15000  'yes the time is in milliseconds
Timer1.Start

Open in new window


In the Timer1_Tick event..
Timer1.stop
'Add whatever code you wish to process

Open in new window


If you can include a bit more detail of what you are trying to achieve with the timer i could provide more detail.
