    Again I am seeing strange things : in a service, in Service_Create I have initialized a Timer
    While debugging, I have seen in the logs

    This turns my head on because :
    • the service was destroying itself
    • the Timer is initialized in Service_Create only
    Do I have something more to learn about components life cycles ?
    As a workaround I now test if the Timer is already initialized. But is it the right way to do things ?

    Sub Service_Create
    If Not(TEnvoiSMS.IsInitialized) Then TEnvoiSMS.Initialize("TEnvoiSMS",DateTime.TicksPerSecond/4)
    End Sub
    Many thanks

    The service may be destroyed but not the process.
    You can check IsInitialized.
