What is DispatcherTimer in WPF?

For WPF applications,
there is a new type of timer that utilizes the Dispatcher—the DispatcherTimer class. Like other timers, the DispatcherTimer class supports specifying an interval between ticks as well as the code to run when the timer’s event fires. You can see a fairly pedestrian use of the DispatcherTimer.
_timer = new DispatcherTimer();
_timer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(2000); 
_timer.Tick += new EventHandler(delegate(object s, EventArgs a) 
    statusText.Text = string.Format(
        "Timer Ticked:  {0}ms", Environment.TickCount);
