Waiting Form

working on some pageant scoring program and ran into big problem.
there are three events in the pageant and after the second, the top3 contestants (finalists) are chosen. the thing is i need all the scores from all 3 judges before i can determine the finalists. so far, only the 3rd (last) judge to enter his scores can view the top3 contestants. i know i'ld use a waiting form to stall the first two until the last judge is done, but have know idea how to do that. help, anyone! im using microsoft access to store the information and oleDB

You could store the number of answered scores in an application-level variable:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if request("score") <> "" then
  2.    application("scoresDone") = application("scoresDone") + 1
  3. end if
  5. if application("scoresDone") < 3 then %>
  6.    <!-- make page refresh using HTML or javascript code according to your preference -->
  7. <%
  8. else
  9.    response.redirect "finalResults.asp"
  10. end if
  11. %>
Let me know if this helps.

thanks so much for the help, but my schools webmaster helped me out by using Page.ClientScript.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered("R efreshParent"). not exactly sure how it works but it does. sorry for the bother
