I am currently developing an ASP Chat application as an accompaniment for our projects. i don&#039t see this as being a real busy application but must plan for the worst.<BR><BR>Writing the functionality was quick and simple, but some interesting issues arise. <BR><BR>What is the most effective way to grab messages. I currently just have a meta refresh tag but that is just for testing. I am using sQl server, iis and the like.<BR><BR>In theory, you would only want the messages frame refreshed when a new message is posted. ANY ideas? Triggers? DBase Polling?<BR><BR>appreciate it<BR>
