Page does not refresh

Hello all
I'm building a suite of free php applications to create virtual worlds.
My problem is i can't get my file to refresh. Can this be done with
javascript?
I would like to have the display and the form be on a single
page..unless this can be done with frames.

The sample application contains 2 files:
a)The php file (with input controls and the embedded world)
b)The embedded world (text file)

1. The php file accepts input from the user
2. The user hits Submit which creates the text file for the world
this works - the text file is created with changes. next the page
should refresh itself and show the world based on the user's input.

Right now steps 1 and 2 work perfectly in the sense that the text file
for the world does get created. however the page will still show the
older version of the text file.

To get the page to refresh properly, i have to hit the reload button on
the browser...this gives me the "this page can't be refreshed without
sending..." alert...but it then refreshes and shows the changes.

the code:
the code for the text file is irrelevant.
the code for the php file (just a snippet):

<html><head>
<title>SpotCode r</title>
</head>
<body>
<form method="POST" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
<p>Spot Title: <input type="text" name="SpotTitle " size="20" /></p>
<p><input type="submit" /></p>
</form>
</body>
</html>

<?php
//variables
$spot_code = $_POST['SpotTitle'];
//open
$sc = fopen("myfile.3 dml", "w");

// Write to 3dml text file
fwrite($sc, "<TITLE NAME=" . '"'. $spot_code .'"'. " />\n");

// Close file
fclose($sc);

?>

<div id="Mylayer" style="position :absolute; left:25px; top:130px;
width:626px; height:440px; z-index:2">
<embed TYPE="model/vnd.flatland.3d ml" SRC="myfile.3dm l"
PLUGINSPAGE="ht tp://www.flatland.co m/download_direct .html" HEIGHT="440"
WIDTH="626">
</div>

Try something like:

<embed TYPE="model/vnd.flatland.3d ml"
SRC="myfile.3dm l?<?php print time() ?>"

Appending the output from the time() function will make the value of the SRC
attribute unique each time the page is reloaded and should force your
browser to retrieve a fresh copy from the server.

On my web app I allow the user to enable or disable the refreshing of the page. I notcied that if the browser window is minimized the page does not refresh, or if it sits a long time without any user interaction(does not happen often) the page does not refresh. Is this a code issue or just how refresh works?

This has been driving me crazy. server.transfer doesn't set the focus to the page I transfer to so when the user does a refresh, the results aren't what's expected.

Users click on this button an it takes them to a new page where they can add a new guest. So they type in the guest information and click on the...

I'm having an issue with the "Refresh" of an asp.net page. The refresh is actually calling my last onClick event. I thought that asp.net was supposed to be stateless in that it shouldn't remember that I clicked a button before the refresh. Here is what is going on: 1) Page Loads 2) User enters some values, clicks the "Save" button 3) The onClick event handler for the save button saves the data to the database and the page is...

Hi All :-) I have a web page that I need to refresh every time the page loads. I thought that the page automatically did a refresh/postback on the Page_Load event. Isn't refreshing the page the same thing as an Auto-postback? My page does not refresh with current data if you leave it, go to another page and return; but if you manually do a refresh of the page (using the Refresh button on the toolbar in IE), the page refreshes/reloads with...

Hi, i'm not sure to understand the difference between refreshing the pagina by clicking on 'refresh' in the browser and a postback. What i think it is: Suppose a page with a form containing a textbox and a dropdowlist: and a button to start something n code-behind: a refresh doesn't send any value back to the server but with a postback, the values are sent? But then, which role does Viewstate play in the postback proces?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
