I want to add a timer in gtk(#) application to autosave text in textview. I
had used System.Timers.Timer while working on windows (on same application).
In gtk i am unable to find a way to get it done. I tried
System.Timers.Timer.Tick but it wasn't there in mono class library. I then
tried System.Timers.Timer.Elapsed but it won't worked. I then advised to use
GLib.Timeout. It also doesn't work. The problem which occurs (even with
System.Timers.Timer.Elapsed) is that when I click on the Action (menu item)
the gui freezes simply without any progress. Plz suggest me where I am
wrong. Here is the code I am trying to use behind a menu item toggle
protected virtual void OnAction19Toggled (object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        if(this.Action19.Active == true)
                GLib.Timeout.Add(1000, new
