    How to refresh a client browser from the server without client request


    Hi,

    We are planning to develop a digital dash board, Just like regular messenger
    and some extra features. We have to develop this digital dash board without
    any client software installation.

    We are facing problem to send messages from server to client without any
    request from client.

    If you have any ideas please help us.

    Thanks,
    Kamisetty.

    You can't refresh a browser from the server; however, you can have the
    browser request a refresh periodically, or you can write a script to call a
    URL in the background to find out if an updated version of a page is
    available, and refresh only when that's true.

    Yes... you can't refresh a client browser from server. But, you can use web
    services and remote scripting to achieve similar functionality. You can find
    about remote scripting in msdn... try "web service behaviour".

    Very simple. Use a meta tag. Here is a sample.
    <META http-equiv="REFRESH" content="60;URL=www.htihotelink.com">

    Thanks Arvind. I will try remote scripting.

    Brent,
    Thanks for the response.
    using meta tags we can refresh client browser priodically. But I have to
    send messages to the client browser, whenever server receives a client related
    message.

    Thanks,
    Kamisetty.
