Looping HTML Code

Posted on 2002-07-06
Last Modified: 2010-04-09
I am very new to HTML, but would like to know if there is a way to write a loop into the code as one would do in visual basic.  I have a picture file which is being updated periodicaly and would like to refresh that picture without the need to restart the browser each time.

you can use the refresh tag, in html there's no such thing as looping for that you could use script but i guess that isn't nessecary for what you're trying to do here

or, you could do reload the image without reloading the whole page:

<BODY onLoad='setInterval("document.images[\"yourImageName\"].src=\"images/yourimage.gif?rnd=\"+Math.random()",10000);'>

<IMG name="yourImageName" src="images/yourimage.gif" border="0">

the 10000 in the setInterval is the number of milliseconds to wait for each refresh (10 seconds in this case).

I have the following code which generates a very nice selection box but now how do I steer the selection to where it is supposed to go when the camera is selected. In this case a different Java Applet for each camera.

<Select Name="field name" SIZE=1>                 change SIZE to 4 for selection box
