variables not passed when document refreshes

Hi,

I have a page(hidden frame) that refreshes every x seconds.

This page basically "polls" a static visible frame for data entry values.
The page works fine except when I'm trying to pass data to itself when it refreshes.

I do a  'request.form("x")'  and there is no data.
I alter to code to replace the constant refresh with  a user initiated 'submit'  and the
data is passed fine.

It seems as if the "refresh" is not the same as a "submit" as far as sending the variables.

Is this the case?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Phil31

correct, it is not the same.  IMO you are better off going with the submit, but if you really want to do it with a refresh then let me know, it can be done albiet cumbersome.

You can ofcourse, submit the form automatically too, so it will behave similar to your automatic refresh.

   setTimeout( "document.forms['nameOfYourForm'].submit()", 60000 );  // submit is 60 seconds
