    Refreshing XML data islands


    I am trying to come up with a method of refreshing an XML data island without
    having to reload my page.

    The way the system currently works, is I have an embedded xml object that,
    when the ASP page is originally loaded, calls another ASP page which writes
    back to it, xml data retrieved from a database:

    <xml id="MyXML" src="process.asp"></xml>

    I data-bind this data island to some tables and fields, creating a master
    detail affair...but I would like to have a button that when clicked, causes
    a refresh of the data island, without physically retrieving the whole page
    again.

    I have tried setting the xml object's SRC property to "", then back to the
    original PROCESS.ASP, but no go. The XMLDocument property is readonly, so
    that does not seem like an option.

    Anyone care to throw out some ideas to try?

    You can use the XMLHttpRequest object or remote scripting to make a
    background call to the server to retrieve the XML file contents.

    Well, it seems like the XMLDocument isn't so 'read-only'....apparently you
    can call the LoadXML method, and change things...so ignore my previous post,
    since I seem to have answered my own question.
