Refresh only the Datagrid

P: n/a
My app is intended to be available to about 20 people over an
intranet. They will all be looking at (more or less) the same
recordset, and the records are being constantly updated, either by
users or other processes. I need to propagate these changes to users
by some sort of "push" technology but I also understand that "push"
technology ain't the answer.

What I thought about was some way of periodically refreshing just the
datagrid (the only part of the form that is connected to a recordset)?
I want to minimise the disruption of the user's browsing experience
(viz. full page refresh) but they have to see the most recent records
(within reason).

Anyone tackled this kind of thing before?

TIA

Edward

not really that easy.
few options but all are a bit kludge
iFrame, two windows, whole page refresh, embedded Control
There may be others but those are the options I've heard most common.
Does this have to be web based? Sounds like you are trying to use a client
system as a web based one, and it's not always the best choice.
