SQL PUSH DATA
Posted on 2004-09-15
I don't know if this is possible, but I would some how in a stored procedure push somthing to the users of my program. Here's what I mean. I have lets say 10 users who view a datagrid(vb.net) and when one of these users updates the table via Stored procedure, I would like the Stored Procedure to some how send out some, form of communication to the users telling them that there is new data. ( so they can refresh the DG or what ever). I currently have the VB program just pooling data every 5 secs from the DB, but wonder if there is a better way to do it. Sort of a push from the DB rather than having the program pull so often.
I would love any information in the right direction.
