Usage of the Start() method is as follows.

1:

handle h = new handle();

2:

timer tim = new timer(h,"THandler(dictionary)", 1000);

3:

tim.Start(); // The handler method will be called every time the set time elapses.

The method call continues until it is stopped explicitly or by an exception.

If this method is already called, re-call will be ignored.
