i'm trying to build a very simple chatbox and i've succeeded to make one in Active Server Pages. Only problem is that it has to reload, and at this moment all the content disappears and a new page is displayed (just loading a document with a <meta refresh>-tag.
I;ve understood that it is possible to let an applet load a text file (which i generate with ASP) and display it. The applet itself can ask that .asp-document every x seconds and display the text without blinking.
The text consists of 3 parts:
- a url
- the name of the author (in bold)
- the bodytext, stripped from html
< jesse - hello people, how are you?
is it hard to make an applet which displays this info? Can anyone make the body of it for me and how many points would you like to have?
