C# - How to set 2100 hours as a Timer.Interval ?

Hello guys,

How to set 2100 hours + 1 minute as a Timer.Interval ? or int 7,560,000,000

But the Int32.MaxValue is 2,147,483,647!

In here says " The time, in milliseconds, between Elapsed events. The value must be greater than zero, and less than or equal to Int32.MaxValue".

Seriously, I need 2100 hours on a timer!

How to solve this problem?

At the start record the time.  

Have a timer that elapsed every second.

Each time it elapsed, calculate the difference between the current time and the start time to see if the time has expired.

You could record the start time in a file and set it up to still work even if your server bounces in the meanwhile.

How accurate must the +1 minute be ?

Note the current date/time and add 2100 hours + 1 minute and that is your target time.
(Consider storing this target eg in file or registry - reboot / crash....)
Set a timer going that fires each minute (or other interval as you prefer).  
In the timer event check the current time is still less than the target time.  If not then the time has elapsed

Hi,
I need this: ((2100  * 60  * 60  * 1000)+60000)

This app, is WinForm app.

This app has a loop 2100 hour + 1 minute.

 MajorBigDeal and  AndyAinscow,  could you explain with a example?

Thanks in advance, ocaccy.

In the timer event (for my suggestion, the other is similar) some air code
if(now > target)
  {
    //stop timer
    //run the code you require when the time is reached
  }
