On my jsp page I display some values. I would like these values to reflect any new values every 60 seconds. Using javascript (window.onload) I am able to refresh the entire jsp page every 60 seconds. However, I do not want to refresh the entire jsp page only certain values displayed on the jsp page.

Thank you for any thoughts and suggestions.

You are going to have to refresh the entire page with your current design.

You could alo use an iframe that contains only the items you want refreshed.

Eric,

Thanks for your reply. I am using an iframe but I do not like the flicker of the refresh. You mentioned with my design I would have to refresh the entire page. Do you have any suggestions for a different design that I could refresh just a value?

Thanks, Lisa

If you have a hidden iframe on the page, you can refresh only the ifrmae (which obtains the updated data), avoiding the main page 'flicker'. The iframe code would use Javascript to cause the values in the main page to be updated.
