I had created a web application in which there is a form for creating an event at a specific date and time.Now the client wants to send mail at that date and time to a mail id.I think the only solution to schedule sending a mail at a specific date and time can be accomplished using task scheduler with trigger one time, so that when we create each event there creates a task scheduler.I had searched a lot and can't find any code for creating tasks in task scheduler using asp.net.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

You better go with Windows Service. Set all details and store in DB when filling the details on Form. Your window service will read data from the database.

Scott Hanselman posted a fairly comprehensive list of options for scheduling background tasks in ASP.NET back in August:

Solution 1

You have two options.

1. You can do this by running a Windows Task Scheduler. It is nothing but one Window or Console App, which will be scheduled in your Server. Inside the app, write you email sending code.

You can select the Time(when to run) and Frequency(when to repeat it again) for the Scheduler.

2. Refer - How to run Background Tasks in ASP.NET[^]. You can use Azure WebJobs. If you don't have Azure, then go for the other Background Task managers mentioned by Scott in his blog.
