You need to learn to debug your code. Put a breakpoint on that line and see what you're referencing (ie have a "." after) that is null. Is System null? System.Web? System.WebHttoContent.Current? etc, go down the chain and see exactly what you are referencing that is null.

You cannot do it like this. The timer class cannot be used in ASP.Net like this. Why? Because the web does not work that way. You VB code sits doing nothing on the server until someone types in your url into their browser. Then the server takes the request, executes the code in the page, and then sends a response back to the client and then disconnects. So, if you kicked off a timer during that process when the timer fires there is no connection which is why .Current is null, you aren't in a current page request. It's long gone.

This is a huge difference between windows apps and web apps. If you want to redirect after some time you'll need to do it from the client side. For example, you can kick off a timer in JavaScript using setTimeout() that then checks for a response and does something depending on what you want.

You need to rethink what it is you are trying to accomplish.

Can you please give me example for that??

I don't exactly understand what you want, so not really.

But look up setTimeout and also "how to redirect to new url in javascript" and you should be able to get started.

i want to check database after every 30 s. if i will get value from Database than only i redirect page on given url else there is no redirecting of page.

1. You'll need a webservice that you can call from javascript. Your webservice will query your database and then return an appropriate value. Google c# webservice and there are tons of examples.
2. Use jQuery's $.ajax(),, to call the webservice. Very easy to use and tons of examples online.
3. In the success function of your .ajax() call you then will either reset the timer for another 30 seconds (or whatever you want) or redirect or give an error, whatever you want.

That's the basic steps that you need.
