DispatcherTimer.IsEnabled Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the timer is running.

 property bool IsEnabled { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool IsEnabled { get; set; }
member this.IsEnabled : bool with get, set
Public Property IsEnabled As Boolean

Property Value

true if the timer is enabled; otherwise, false. The default is false.


The following example creates a DispatcherTimer. A new DispatcherTimer object named dispatcherTimer is created. The event handler dispatcherTimer_Tick is added to the Tick event. The Interval is set to 1 second using a TimeSpan object.

//  DispatcherTimer setup
dispatcherTimer = new System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherTimer();
dispatcherTimer.Tick += new EventHandler(dispatcherTimer_Tick);
dispatcherTimer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1);
'  DispatcherTimer setup
dispatcherTimer = New Threading.DispatcherTimer()
AddHandler dispatcherTimer.Tick, AddressOf dispatcherTimer_Tick
dispatcherTimer.Interval = New TimeSpan(0,0,1)


IsEnabled must be set to true for the Tick event to be raised.

Calling Start sets IsEnabled to true.

Calling Stop sets IsEnabled to false.
