    Auto Reload/Refresh of page or content

    AER6112

      I am a newb to Edge Animate and coding in general. I am developing a mobile web page with text on it. I need to update the text and have users see the updated text without having to reload/refresh the page themselves. Is there a way to have the page auto-refresh or another way to ensure people see the updated text if they already have the page loaded on their device?

          Hi Friend,

           

          Use Javascript utility for auto-refresh the page.

           

          Following example will be helpful to you:

           

           

          <html>

          <head>

          <script type="text/JavaScript">

          <!--

          function timedRefresh(timeoutPeriod) {

                    setTimeout("location.reload(true);",timeoutPeriod);

                    alert("hi")

          }

          //   -->

          </script>

          </head>

          <body onload="JavaScript:timedRefresh(5000);">

          <p>This page will refresh every 5 seconds. This is because we're using the 'onload' event to call our function. We are passing in the value '5000', which equals 5 seconds.</p>

          <p>But hey, try not to annoy your users too much with unnecessary page refreshes every few seconds!</p>

          </body>

          </html>

           

           

          Enjoy RIA
