Using VB2005, .NET CF2 SP2, SDF2.2, PowerPC2003 device
I am trying to use the LargeIntervalTimer for a datalogging application, where I want to wake up and take readings at intervals of a few seconds up to several hours. I set the Interval and FirstEventTime properties to the correct interval, and a time some time in the future (say 30s interval, starting on the next minute). Then I enable the timer.
I sometimes get 1 or 2 events firing immediately, even though the time is before FirstEventTime. I then find that the timer often (but not always) continues at the right interval, but not sychronised to FirstEventTime. What is going on here?
Am I right that the Tick event runs on a separate thread, so I need to use delegates to update the user interface?
How do I search these forums for relevant posts? putting LargeIntervalTimer into the search at the top of the page doesn't throw up anything!
Thanks for any pointers
