    Text Boxes With Text

    I was wondering if anyone out there would know a good way to insert text from a text file. That is updated every 5 seconds. But will only be updated on the website if a button is pushed. I would like to do this with out using PHP or a DATABASE for now. Thank you for you input in advance.

    It is possible to do this in IE with ActiveX controls but it is not secure from the users pov and is therefore frowned upon..

    ps. where is the text file ... on the server or the users machine?
    pps. you should really use perl or php for this sort of stuff..

    Just to start out

    Active X eh. That sounds good. As for the security, that is ok only b/c this is for an intranet application, for a few people (kinda want to make it easy for me to do something at work) I eventually would like to do it with PHP but i am having a rough time setting up the server and DATABASE, for it.
    If know any good Active X FAQs or help sites, plz let me know.

    Thank you
