This page displays moving vehicles with GPS.  The Script works fine but -   The feed is very dynamic - updated every 10 seconds.   I need a way to remove and reapply the GeoRss Layer at a set interval - hopefully without reloading the entire map.   Attached it the current code - any help would be fantastic!!!   Thank you....

I need this function to run, then at a set time clear and reload -
function EventMapLoad()
{
    geoRssLayer1 = new VEShapeLayer();
    var geoRssLayerSpec1 = new VEShapeSourceSpecification(VEDataType.GeoRSS, "http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xxxx.xml", geoRssLayer1);
    map.ImportShapeLayerData(geoRssLayerSpec1, onFeed1Load, true);
 
   
}

var map = null;
var geoRssLayer1 = null;
 
function onFeed1Load(layer)
{
    var numShapes = layer.GetShapeCount();
    for(var i=0; i < numShapes; ++i)
    {
        var s = layer.GetShapeByIndex(i);
        s.SetCustomIcon("Car.ico");
    }
}
 
 
function EventMapLoad()
{
    geoRssLayer1 = new VEShapeLayer();
    var geoRssLayerSpec1 = new VEShapeSourceSpecification(VEDataType.GeoRSS, "http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xxxx.xml", geoRssLayer1);
    map.ImportShapeLayerData(geoRssLayerSpec1, onFeed1Load, true);
 
    
}
function CreateMap()
{
    map = new VEMap('myMap');
    map.onLoadMap = EventMapLoad;
    map.LoadMap(new VELatLong(30.01416, -97.8964), 5, VEMapStyle.Road);
}
 
function CheckBox1Clicked(cb)
{
   if (cb.checked)
   {
      geoRssLayer1.Show();
   }
   else
   {
      geoRssLayer1.Hide();
   }

I am still working with this suggestion.  At first pass it is not causing a refresh.  I deployed it late last night and tested without success.  I will try and troubleshoot it this am.   Thank you - john

This doesnt seem to be working.   Does anyone have any other suggestions.  The last solution - which should work does not cause a refresh of the units....  not sure where to go from here.    If I close the browser window and open it again I get the latest positions. - but this fix or just clicking refresh doesnt get the latest positions....

If you don't want to provide the url, you can post a sample set of your xml.

BTW: if you DO provide the url, once the problem is solved, you can request community support to change it back to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

They will gladly change it for you.

As for emailing, you are not allowed to post your email address in the discussions (like you did above) AND all discussions pertaining to your problem need to take place on this forum not offline.
