C# check for a variable to equal?

Postby hallsofvallhalla » Tue Nov 04, 2014 12:12 pm

So I am using an API from another company and it allows me to run reports via this API. It has a method that runs it, a method to check if it is finished running, then a method to get the results.

What is the best way in C# to check to see if report is finished say every 5 seconds?

I have never used it before, but I believe the Timer class would be best for this. It raises an event based on time, so you could use it to continuously check if the operation is done. About the only tutorial I could find is here.

well there is a few ways to do it...
Firs you can use the timer control and just put in the event handler like so

Code: Select all
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
//Do your stuff here set the timer tick property to 5000 and bamn

or you can have it check the time and set a time to check in a loop or the main loop of the program.cs file
Code: Select all
DateTime lastcheck = DateTime.Now;

if(DateTime.now >= lastcheck.AddSeconds(5)){
//Do your stuff here

//at end of your stuff

you get the idea... Stackoverflow usually has good c# info btw
