I wan to know how to refresh a webpage every x amount of second or minutes. I don't want to keep pressing the refresh botton in this one website that has a value that changes with the stock market. here i am trying to run this java script:


<html>
<head>

<title>Auto Reload</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
var time = null
function move() {
window.location = 'http://www.google.com'
}
for (i=1;i<=10 ;i++){
  if(i=10){
    timer=setTimeout('move()',3000)
   
}
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
   
</body>

This one solution we have here in mind with the guys that is not working. We don't want to use freeware out if we can avoided. Who knows what you could be installing.

There is an HTML tag than can make a web page to auto reload after a period of time (in seconds) is reached. The syntax for this tag is as follows:

    <HEAD>
      ...
      <META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="seconds">
      ...
      ...
    </HEAD>

You could always try this:
<html>
    <head>
        <META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="2">
    </head>
    <Body>
    <iframe src="http://www.fda.gov/cder/whatsnew.htm" width="100%" height="100%" border="0">
    </body>
</html>
