Executing function at interval in Console Application

interval , call back Malé, Maldives
  • 11 years ago
    Hi, I'm developing an application which basically connects to a device, read the data stored in that device and store the information to the database. I'm using .net 2.0 (visual studio 2005) with Visual Basic. I have programmed the data reading from the device and writing them to the database. However, now I have to make sure that this data read from the device takes place at an interval, like every 10 seconds (10000 milliseconds). I'm able to do this in a Windows Application, but i'm wondering how do i go about implementing it in a console Application. Any directions or suggestions? Thanks for your time. aHa
