Textbox feeding from database without refresh

Posted on 2006-04-04

I have come across a small problem,

I would like to know how to insert data into a textbox by getting data from a database either using mysql or SQL Server or even getting data from a text file.

With a javascript interval were it will get connection and run code and insert in to the textbox, (around every 3 / 5 seconds) giving the impression of real time without the whole page refreshing or using iframe's (basically no visible refresh).

I believe I can do this using javascript along with aspx but unsure how to.

I have quite a bit of aspx knowledge along with lots of knowledge of javascript, asp and php along with SQL scripting (including MYSQL).

Any help at all on this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    This sounds like you are wanting to implement an AJAX solution.  I've never done this myself, but I believe microsoft was coming out with ATLAS, which I believe is what you are looking for.  Otherwise a google search on AJAX and ASP.NET should give you the examples you are looking for.

    I find that atlas is the perfect solution for this situation.

    Many Thanks
