What do you mean "update" ? <BR><BR>You mean "refresh" a page after an entry is entered into your database.<BR><BR>After the INSERT, make a Response.Redirect to the page you need to "refresh"<BR><BR>It isn't the only way to do this but since I'm not aware of how you've coded your page I can only give this answer!<BR><BR>Hope this helps
I don't think it's possible, when the page is displayed in the browser, the page is 'dead'. The page has no connection to the server anymore. <BR>You can't force an refresh on the client when something on the server changes. You could do an refresh every x seconds using the following syntax in the HEAD section:<BR><BR><META NAME ="refresh" CONTENT="5"> (you might want to check the syntax ;-) )<BR><BR>in this case the page is refreshed every 5 seconds
this isnt for one user... there can be multiple users all logged in and if there is one update, they all need to see it within a few seconds. I was hoping to stay away from refreshing everyones browser ever 5 seconds. Also, none of the code has been written yet as I wanted to see if it was possible first.<BR>
I'm sorry, but you can't control the refresh of multiple (or even one!) browsers from serverside code. Period.<BR><BR>If someone updates the database, you CAN'T refresh the other browser windows. As soon as an ASP page is displayed in the browser the server forgets the whole page!<BR><BR>Check faq #169 on www.aspfaqs.com for the fundamentals of client/server scripting.
