Exceptions in timers

P: n/a
Hi all,

What would happen if I let an exception escape a timer thread, as in the
following example. Would the behaviour be any different when done from a
timer that is synchronized with a Form (so SynchronizingObject = Form
instance)? Is there any difference in behaviour when comparing 1.1 vs 2.0?

using System.Timers;
class Bar
private System.Timers.Timer bazTimer;

public void Foo( )
bazTimer = new System.Timers.Timer( );
bazTimer.AutoReset = true;
bazTimer.Interval = 1000;
bazTimer.SynchronizingObject = null; // threadpool
bazTimer.Elapsed += new ElapsedEventHandler( TimeThis );
bazTimer.Enabled = true;

private void TimeThis( )
throw new InvalidOperationException( );

static void Main( )
Bar b = new Bar( );
b.Foo( );
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep( 100000 );

Kind Regards,
Tom Tempelaere.
