Hello, I need to monitor an event (in my case, whether a new file is added or not) in a certain folder. But, I need to give it up after a certain time, and alert the user. I tried with Monitor Event and FIle Change Trigger, but can’t find any property to set the timeout / time limit. Any way to do this?
I kind a like this idea of adding timeout to file change trigger activity in coming days(@ovi) . However there is a workaround for this.
This is how it goes,
- Check number of file count
- Use while for looping (kind of monitor event )
- match number of file count using if condition
- exit the loop if it matches stopwatch timer(delayTime.Elapsed<TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30))
Here we go.

That’s an honor! Thank you!
But so, it means there is no way to do that directly… Thank you for you clarification @ddpadil
Forgot to add that the workaround Do While file worked nice too. Using this!
