Self refreshing user control/custom control.

Hello,
I need to display self refreshing information on a web page written with
asp.net. I would image that the info would be displayed either as part of a
user control or a web control.
How can this be done? The information will come from a database and the
displaying should loop throug a table in
the database.

Many thank in advance

You can't have a (web)control refresh just itself, because from the browser's
point of view it is just a section of html code.
You *can* have the complete page refresh itself with this in the <head>:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10">
(where the "10" means a 10-second interval, adjust as needed)

If you need to have just a part of the page refresh itself, you need to
write that part as an iframe, containing a refreshing aspx.

(okay, you could also do a lot with client-side javascript and similar
technologies, but that is a lot more work)

Jensen,

Could you specify a little more? What type of refreshing are you looking
for? Describe your application.

You have a couple of options here:

1) Use client-side scripting to dynamically change information on the page
without refreshing a page.

2) Refresh the entire page and ensure that next page request brings
different data to the user.
