How to pass some information to the Timer.ElapsedEventHandler? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I generate multiple timers and want to pass some information to the ElapsedEventHandler of each timers.

    On the event, there are two parapeters, that is, object sender, RoutedEventArgs e.

    Can I use this? if so how can I pass an information?

    If not, is there any other way?

  • private static void timer_Elapsed(object sender, ElapsedEventArgs e)
            //get the parameters that we specified.
            int timerID = ((TaskTimer)sender).ID;
            string param1 = ((TaskTimer)sender).Param1;
            Console.WriteLine("ID:{0} - {1}", timerID, param1);

    In this event handler, I need to stop timer.

    How do I do?
