    <Calling a method (after specific interval of time)> 

    Hi guys

    Need some real help.....
    In an web application (using I have made a method ( method name is my_ping() ).

    Now the problem is a need a loop that would call this method after every 5 minutes or after any period of time that we define, say 10minutes, 5minutes, 25 seconds whatever.

    This is the main issue that how do i write such a loop (or any control statement) that would call this methjod after a specific interval of time.

    Secondly, we should able to stop this loop when we press stop button or when we unload this form. (This is not that tough though.)

    Anyone could help me guys...
