View Full Version : Refresh with a query string

06-28-2004, 09:06 PM
I have a page that needs to auto refesh. The issue is that the user's id value is in the url ie: http://mysite.com?userid=007

What i need is to grab that value for the userid and apply that the javascript refresh function so the user does not get logged out. If you can please show me a sample of the javascript

Thank you

Lets see your refresh function....

Using location.reload() won't require you to grab the querystring as it refreshes the page as if you click Refresh or Reload button.

setTimeout("location.reload(true)", 60000);

But if the page came from a POST request, a prompt will be displayed asking to reload the page or not. If that's the case, use this instead:

setTimeout("location.replace(location.href)", 60000);
