Communicate to Widgets On a Timer Event

Apr 20, 2009 at 4:05 PM
I need a timer event to inform all widgets on the page to respond to this event.  I was able to do this with a master timer widget, but I don't want to see a widget on the page.

How can I communicate to all widgets from the framework?  I was thinking about having a Timer on the Default.aspx page to call the IWidgetHost.EventBroker, but I need a valid IWidgetHost instance.  Any idea how I can do this?

Thanks,

I need this functionality also. Anybody implemented this yet?

I would like to set up a timer within a widget itself, so that each widget could refresh itself at different intervals. I would also like to be able to set the interval within the Settings of the widget. Any help with that would be appreciated.
