location.reload() problem

P: 5
hi,

i have a problem with location.reload();

because i need to reload my page without clicking a button so
everytime i get a reply from server (using ajax) i call
location.reload();

in one of my codes, i was calling:

fill() --->this fills my form from data in db.

and then, the other call that i have, calls:

location.reload();
fill(xmlResponse);

the first call does not have a prblem but when i call a function with
location.reload() previously, it gives out an error saying that
the fill(xmlResponse) is not defined.

what are the rules necessary when calling location.reload?

im stuck please help. thanks a lot.

Why would you reload the page if you're using Ajax?

The whole purpose behind using Ajax is to avoid the full reloading of a page.

I think you should read up on the power of using Ajax.

If I understand you properly, your logic should be:
1- Button click
2- Make Ajax call
2a- Results return
3- Populate form
x- No page reloading; acts like desktop app
