refresh iframe using javascript
how to refresh iframe

 12:15 pm on Nov 21, 2003 (gmt 0)

is meta-refresh on a page in an iframe reliable to refresh it at n time?

i tried this script:

function refreshiframe()
setTimeout("refreshiframe()", 2700000);

then I add it to body onload=" "

... is there a specific javascript to refresh a page in an iframe?

Is the page trying to refresh itself, or are you trying to refresh the page from the parent document?

Then why not just meta-refresh in the <head> of the page inside the IFrame?


whereby every 5 seconds, refreshes

my problem using meta-refresh is if the page inside the iframe times-out, it cannot refresh itself. did the javascript i did above would help on this? thanks

If you meta-refresh it, then the above javascript would be unneccessary..And what else then would be timing it out? IF the iframe contains another script to time itslef out, then that needs to be removed. Why tell a page "Reload every xx seconds AND kill yourslef by doing so-and-so-**** every xx seconds."? Unless you're not teling the entire story, either method (javascript or regular meta-tag) will work, but only need one, and then nothing should time it out before it refreshes.
