client timer??

Posts: n/a
I want to put a control on a web page that will trigger an autopostback
event in a period of time, say 10 seconds. Is there any such thing as a
client timer? Like a button that will push itself 10 seconds after it is

Hi Gary,

From your description, you are wanting to build a web component which can
make the page post back itself once every serveral seconds,yes?

There does exist some means to do such task, you can try the following
1. The standard html <meta> tag can help set to make a page refresh it self
constantly by a certain period of time.

#HTML META refresh tag

2. The "window.setTimeout" and "window.setInterval" can help call a
function after a certain period or repeatedly by a period. That is
something like a clienttimer, you may have a look at the following links:

#Javascript window.setTimeout

#Javascript window.setInterval

Hope helps.
