Hi
I have the following code on a button which causes the page to reload.
getURL("javascript:window.location.reload()")
The button is positioned way down the page.
When the page reloads in IE I'm at the top .. great.
When it reloads in FF it goes to where the button is (way down the page) .. not great.

I can't find a way of adding an anchor to the link ..

Any help please ..

E.
getURL("javascript:window.location.reload()")

Open in new window

If you are really desperate do this
getURL("javascript:window.location.reload(1); setTimeout('window.scrollTo(0,0)',10)")

Open in new window

The (1) means "from server"

I'm noticing that Safari isn't behaving the same .. any reason it doesn't like a forced refresh ?
