    Default Refreshing

    I have seen a live auction site where, when someone else makes a bid it refreshes your browser and updates a table displaying the bids. This is not done using a meta tag refresh. It does not happen regularly - it happens when someone bids. How is this done?

    Well,<BR><BR>if they are cool, its done with a server and some push technology. <BR><BR>in asp, the simplest way to reach that effect...Hidden Frame,<BR>application object. <BR>you would probably have the page in a frame for the blah,blah<BR>on what you are selling,<BR>then have a frame with the bids, and then at <BR>specified time intervals, have the hidden frame "poll the server" and do a refresh. <BR><BR>Thats a way, but there are more and better ways that I am not privy too, you could use remote scripting as well, although, i don&#039;t know what that would bring to the table.

    It&#039;s definitely not done at specified time intervals - it happens when someone bids. How?
