Problem with page refresh

I am passing variables in to my page using the url variable. When I refresh the page manually (F5) this works fine but when the page refreshes using the meta refresh the variables are not passed and the page is blank.I have tried putting <cfoutput> tags round the meta refresh but it produces an error.

This is the meta refresh:
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="240;url=http://server/frame_sets/Customers.cfm?Router=#url.Router#&TimeSpan=#url.TimeSpan#">

When the page is first called, the variables are passed from a Form on the previous page.

can you verify that the url appears correctly in the browser location field and that the meta tag is properly wrapped in cfoutput?

cheers.

If I put <cfoutput> tags round the meta refresh I get the following error:

An error occurred while evaluating the expression: #url.Router#

What do you mean by 'browser location field'?

so when you refresh the page the first time you should use form.router not url.router  It may be easy to just drop the prefix that way you can just set router = #router# on the refresh.  Try this

Hi,

If your uses type "POST" change your URL for FORM, for the variable ROUTER.

But if "GET" uses URL.

Yes, bigbadb "just set router = #router#" works.

Attention, don't uses spaces on your variables. (replaces by %20)

Hope that help.

I have tried dropping the url and passing #Router# as well as using #form.router# but neither work. Any idea why it won't accept the <cfoutput> tags?

I'm still getting a blank page when dropping the url:

<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="240;url=http://server/frame_sets/Customers.cfm?Router=#Router#&TimeSpan=#TimeSpan#">

>If I put <cfoutput> tags round the meta refresh I get the following error:

that implies that you are not passing the right variables.  although using just #router# should work, try the following explicit assignment:

<cfif isdefined('url.router')>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="240;url=http://server/frame_sets/Customers.cfm?Router=#url.Router#&TimeSpan=#url.TimeSpan#">
<cfelse>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="240;url=http://server/frame_sets/Customers.cfm?Router=#form.Router#&TimeSpan=#form.TimeSpan#">
</cfif>

>What do you mean by 'browser location field'?

i refer to the box where you type the url into the browser - on netscape it is called 'location' on ie it is called 'address'

cheers.

oh, i should have also said to wrap it all in cfoutput...

<cfoutput>
<cfif isdefined('url.router')>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="240;url=http://server/frame_sets/Customers.cfm?Router=#url.Router#&TimeSpan=#url.TimeSpan#">
<cfelse>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="240;url=http://server/frame_sets/Customers.cfm?Router=#form.Router#&TimeSpan=#form.TimeSpan#">
</cfif>
</cfoutput>

cheers.

I've tried your code but still get a blank page when it refreshes, it doesn't produce an error on the <cfoutput> tags though. The fields are correctly passed to the browser location field.
