    Run a Javascript in the background

    Hi there...dunno if this is an asp or javascript question....

    I have an asp page with a Alert function...Once the client puts in an Alert from a website, the sql table gets updated on our end with the note...Now when I come in say next morning, I should get a popup of the Alert and be able to snooze it...once snoozed for say 5 mins...it should automatically popup after 5 mins....

    Right now I am using an onload function that calls a javascript that does the job...however if I dont reload the page at tht time, then it doesnt seem to popup...so basically I am looking for a javascript or some function that can run in the background and keep looking if the Alert is present or if it is snoozed....

    Thanks,

    Here's some bits of my code:

    TOPPAGE.asp

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">

    <!--

    function Loadingfunc() {
    var y = window.setTimeout("something();", 1);

    }
    //-->
    </script>

    =====================================================

    <script>

    function something()
    {

    <%
    mySQL = "Select * from FMSAlerts where AlertCompletedon is null and AlertType='CLT' and (datediff(mi,getdate(), Snoozed)<5 OR Viewed is null) and Accountnumber in (Select number from notes where Action='Client' and number in (Select number from master where desk='"&Users("DeskCode")&"'))"
    Set ClientAlerts=Con.Execute(mysql)

    %>

    <% if ClientAlerts.eof<>true then %>

    -------------Code to open a fading popup window------------

    var w, h, l, t;
    w = 400;
    h = 200;
    l = screen.width/4;
    t = screen.height/4;

    window.scrollTo(0,0);
    DropDown.style.width="20%";
    DropDown.style.height="10%";
    DropDown.style.margin="0px 20px 20px 40%";
    displayFloatingDiv('DropDown', 'Floating and Dimming Div', w, h, l, t);
    DropDown.style.display="Block";

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ajaxpage('CollectionReminders.asp?ReturnData=ClientAlertPopup', 'DropDown');

    <% else%>

    //alert("No");

    <% end if%>




    }
    </script>

    This definately needs to be done client side since the server side code is done processing long before the button will be clicked on the alert. I am not a javascript guru but I would think that you would probably do better with a modal dialog than with the alert as it might be easier to capture the event of the button click and start the timer off of it.
