    Auto Freshing flex page

    giggs222 Level 1
      Hi guys, I have a flex web application in a browser and wanted to refresh the screen to get new data every 10mins. I know in html its easy by using hte meta refresh.

      Any ideas how i could do this in flex?

      thanks

          Just tried using a global timer in my app which calls a service to get new data on finishing, but this seems primitive and probably wont scale well, given that flex is single threaded im pretty much stuck!

            You could use a subscription model with something like BlazeDS
