System.Windows.Threading.DispatcherTimer dispatch timer is used when you only want a single event. It fires of an event, and DOES NOT create a new thread. However, this means that the timer function will not run while other code in the same thread is executing.
System.Timers.Timer timer creates a new thread for the timer expired event. This can be a useful way of creating a multi-threaded application without going into the hassle of creating the thread yourself.
