Hi. I am adding  a timer dynamically using the following code and also a
handler to handle the tick event. Things don't seem to be working as the
procedure oTimer_Tick does not run


        Dim oTimer As New Timer
        oTimer.ID = "xTimer" & CStr(oChartGridViewID_Counter)
        oTimer.Interval = "10000"

        Dim up As New UpdatePanel
        up.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(oTimer)
        up.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(oGridView)

        T.Rows(0).Cells(oColumn).Controls.Add(up)
        AddHandler oTimer.Tick, AddressOf oTimer_Tick

    Private Sub oTimer_Tick(ByVal obj As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        'Display current time in lable...
        lblNowDateTime.Text = Date.Now.ToString
    End Sub

What is the overall program flow? How were you anticipating this timer should work?

Well I am adding several GridViews to table cells and want to refresh the bound data every few seconds. I started by trying a single timer at the top of the page but the postback wiped out all my GriViews, so now I am trying to add a timer for each GridView so that every few seconds I can refresh the data coming from SQL

You do understand how the web works, right? By that I mean the whole request/response workflow.

Not well. Fairly new to it. I have resorted to using one timer
      <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
        <ContentTemplate>
            <asp:Timer ID="Timer1" runat="server" Interval="50000">
            </asp:Timer>
        </ContentTemplate>
        </asp:UpdatePanel>

Maybe you could give me a quick pointer on the best way to refresh my dynamically added GridViews

Thanks
