View Full Version : How to refresh a page silently?

03-06-2005, 10:26 PM
Hi, I am currently making a script based chat. Currently I have the chat page to refresh within a certain time interval. The problem is that each time it refreshes on IE it makes the page loading sound. Other than setting the browser to not make the sound, is there anyway to do a "silent refresh"?

Nope, that's a system setting... unless execCommand("Refresh") works silently, that is.

I think the best you can do is explain how to turn that sound off.

only by using XMLHttpRequest which is prolly overkill for you, and would mean redeveloping the rest of your site/application.
