create timer using list value and assign those timer to execute query in C#

I wish this help you Since your error syas that No overload for method 'Timer' takes '4' arguments, I'm guessing that you are using System.Timers.Timer class, for which there is no constructor which takes 4 arguments.
As per your code, you need to use:
code :
using ThreadingTimer = System.Threading.Timer;
System.Threading.Timer = new System.Threading.Timer(TimerAction, dataValue, 1000, 0);

How do you create a more accurate timer in OpenLaszlo than the lz.Timer class that can pause and loop?

By : Milind

will be helpful for those in need The following OpenLaszlo timer class I designed will fire more accurately and also has a nice looping feature with pause and reset for ease of use. This code works in OpenLaszlo 4.9.0 SWF10 and DHTML run-times:
code :

  Class: <loopingtimer>
  Extends: <node>

  This class is a looping timer that can be used to call a method to peform
  an action repeatedly after a specified number of milliseconds.

  Override the abstract method reactToTimeChange(theTime) to do something
  useful in your application, theTime will be the time elapsed since the
  timer's last firing, it will be close to the 'timer_resolution' set but
  will be off from about 47ms-78ms in FireFox 2 and 47ms-94ms in IE6
  (see note below for explanation).


  This class originally used the LzTimer class but it was firing up to 256ms
  late, so this has been replaced with a setTimeout() method and embedded
  JavaScript which is more accurate, but still fires about 59ms late on

  For this reason the firing times of this class are approximate but will
  probably fire 47ms to 78ms (about 59ms) on average late. As a workaround
  for this problem the timer uses the system time to calculate how much time
  has actually elapsed since the last timer firing and passes the actual time
  elapsed ('theTime') in milliseconds to the abstract 'reactToTimeChange()'

  <class name="loopingtimer" extends="node">

      <when property="$as3">
          import flash.utils.setTimeout;

    <!-- *** ATTRIBUTES *** -->

    <!-- Public Attributes -->

    @param numnber timer_resolution: number of milliseconds between timer
    firings (default: 40ms)

    milliseconds between firings, so setting below this may be useless.

Trying to create an application to pick up text on a timer but files are in use and timer doesn't work

By : akim

may help you . Like the other answer said, you need to remove that line. You also need to create the file properly and dispose after (so that handles are released). Also, set your timer to something lower like 1000ms. I also created a boolean variable to check if the connection has been made before the file is read by the timer. Remember to check that your timer is enabled in the settings.
Here is the code:
code :
Imports System.IO

Public Class Form1

    Dim file_name As String
    Dim connected As Boolean

    Sub Chat_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub

    Sub Create_Server_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Create_Server.Click 'This is a button on the form that get the user to choose a location to save the Chat_Server.txt

        SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog()    'Save the file
        file_name = SaveFileDialog1.FileName()  'Get the file path
        MsgBox("Server file made.")
        connected = True

    End Sub

    Sub Connect_Server_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Connect_Server.Click   'Another button on the form that gets the user to choose the Chat_Server.txt

        OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog()    'Open the file
        file_name = OpenFileDialog1.FileName()
        Dim fileExists As Boolean   'Tests whether the file existx and whether it works or not
        fileExists = My.Computer.FileSystem.FileExists(file_name)
        If fileExists = True Then
                Server_Text.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(file_name)
            Catch ex As Exception
                MsgBox("Can't load the file. Try again.")
            End Try
            MsgBox("Chat can't seem to find the chat file. Make sure it is called Chat_Server.txt and it is on an accessible network.")
        End If

    End Sub

    Sub Server_Text_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Server_Text.TextChanged

        Server_Text.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(file_name)    'Places the text from Chat_Server.txt into the main textbox

    End Sub

    Sub Chat_Text_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Chat_Text.TextChanged

        Server_Text.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(file_name)    'Places the text from Chat_Server.txt into the main textbox

    End Sub
    Sub Chat_Text_KeyUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles Chat_Text.KeyUp   'Another textbox that holds the text that the user wants to send to the Chat_Server.txt

        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then  'When the user presses enter the send button is clicked
            Server_Text.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(file_name)    'Places the text from Chat_Server.txt into the main textbox
        End If

    End Sub

    Sub Send_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Send.Click

        My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText(file_name, vbCrLf & Chat_Text.Text, True)   'When send button clicked, write all contents of Client_Text to the Chat_Server.txt
        Server_Text.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(file_name)    'Places the text from Chat_Server.txt into the main textbox

    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick

        If connected Then
            Server_Text.Text = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText(file_name)    'Every 100 miliseconds, places the text from Chat_Server.txt into the main textbox
        End If

    End Sub
End Class

how to fire timer when create the timer inside block function?

By : Victoria
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
may help you . In your case, the variable timer_ is never keep, and you lose the pointer at the end block scope. With a property you have retain / release mechanism.
Try this :
code :
@interface Taxi_MainViewController : Taxi_BaseNavViewController


@property (nonatomic,retain) NSTimer* timer;


[Taxi_do_order psg_place_orderWithMemberId:strMemberId_ orderStatus:K_orderStatus_open andCLLocationCoord:location.coordinate callback:^(NSInteger iOrderId){
        [Taxi_StatusView dismiss];
        if (iOrderId >=0)
            isOrderExist = YES;
            [weakSelf_ showWaittingDriverAcceptView];
            self.timer =   [NSTimer scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:2.0
            [weakSelf_ hideWaittingDriverAcceptView];
        [Taxi_StatusView showLostNetWork];

Create Custom Windows Service Timer : Basically Add Name to Timer

By : LoadsFaster

I wish this help you Seems enumerating or identifying .net object by name (string) has growing popularity, especially in Visual Basic community. In my opinion this is wrong, .NET API suggest using Tag for all programmers requirement that framework hasn't
code :
Timer t1;
Timer t2;
t1.Tag = new MyAdditionalInfo("foo");
t2.Tag = new MyAdditionaInfo("bar");

.. or simply 
t1.Tag = "foo";
t2.Tag = "bar";
