I'm making a windows mobile app in C# that aims to help those affected by Alzheimer's Disease
Part of it needs to send text messages at 5 minute intervals, however, the rest of the C# program needs to continue at the same time.
I know that when you set timers in Visual Basic, for example, you can set lots of them and they work indipendantly to the program, so that when that timer reaches its interval (when it "ticks"), the events associated with it would be triggered, rather than pausing *everything* until the tick occurs.
Is this the same in C#?
What is the best way to get an event to happen at a time interval while letting the rest of the program continue?
