Page auto-refresh and javascript

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a page that has a user-selectable page auto-refresh
option (IE 5.5). Essentially, it's a page that contains a checkbox, when
the user checks the checkbox, I'd like the page to auto-refresh every 4
seconds....if the user un-checks the checkbox, I'd like to turn off the auto

The page is as follows:



String action = request.getPara meter("chkRefre sh");
String refreshCmd = "";

if (action != null) {
refreshCmd = "setInterval('w indow.location. reload()', 4000);";
} else {
refreshCmd = " ";
action = "off";


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaS cript"><!--

<%=refreshCmd %>

function setAutoRefresh( ) {


<TITLE>test.jsp </TITLE>
<FORM NAME="data" ACTION="test.js p" METHOD="post">

<% if (action.equalsI gnoreCase("off" )) { %>
<P><INPUT type="checkbox" name="chkRefres h"
onclick="setAut oRefresh()">Aut o Refresh OFF</P>
<%} else {%>
<P><INPUT type="checkbox" name="chkRefres h" onclick="setAut oRefresh()"
checked>Auto Refresh ON</P>
<% } %>

This works in that it turns the auto-refresh on when the user checks the
"Auto Refresh" checkbox...howe ver, I keep getting the following pop-up

"The page cannot be refreshed without resending the information. Click Retry
to send the information again, or click Cancel to return to the page that
you were trying to view"

Is there anyway to avoid the above pop-up?

Thanks in advance.

It the form method "post" that is causing that message to appear. If
you set it to "get", or do not define it, then that message will not

<FORM NAME="data" ACTION="test.js p" METHOD="get">


<FORM NAME="data" ACTION="test.js p">

The trade off is that the "chkRefresh " field will now be appended to
the url.

I need to set the page title for a content page in a master page, and do that using local reources so that I can have my page title in different languages. I can do that easily using global resources by explicitly setting the value of the Page, but I want to use local resources as a standard. Thank you.

I thought that this was available for all elements in Firefox, but recently had a page where a div didn't have it. I put in an id style for it, thinking that would do the trick, but it didn't. Is that something that isn't there for all elements that are correctly formed, or possibly something that disappears due to malformed HTML? Or is there any other code-related reason (i.e., mistake) that causes it to disappear?

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,...
