Is it possible to create realtime graphics in an ASP.NET page using GDI (E.G A clock)?
Posted on 2006-05-08
I'm not looking for code, more of a high level idea of where to start if it's possible. I have created a control for a windows application that draws an analogue meter using GDI+. It's just a jpg background that looks like a tachometer, and then I use GDI to draw the needle and update it every 300 milliseconds.
Is it possible to do the same sort of thing on an ASP.Net page?
Could I have an ASP page that has some kind of control embedded updates in realtime without the entire page needing to be refreshed? I'm thinking of something like the Java applet analogue clocks that were so popular when Java first took off.
