i've got a frame based webpage, in the mainFrame, an embedded swf which sends a variable to a txt file.

now, another file loads the txt using loadVars.

but the problem is, i can't get the loadVars to refresh itself upon clicking on navigation to another page. (running in IIS).
ie. have to clear cache before new variable shows.

help?
please!

url = "your_page.asp?update=" + (new Date().getTime());

loadVariablesNum(url, 0);
// this.loadVariables(url);
// loadvars.load(url);

negatyve,

it don't work!

I've since had to change the code a bit, using loadXML(), but its loading sometimes and not others.

I understand how to change the XML link in the ASP file now. I uploaded to my web host and tried it and I am not getting any feed at all. Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?
