Hi Experts,

         I am working on a ASP.Net web application wherein I am calling a class method Asynchronously to get the data from data base (using AsyncCallback) on page load. after the completion of this callback method raises an event. I'm handling the event on the asp.net page wherein I'm assigning the datasource to a grid view. Everything is going good except for the page is not getting refreshed after the event is getting fired. I have checked the datasource of the grid is assigned properly but the contents are not shown on the page.

My question is what can I do to refresh the contents of the page.


Please help its Urgent

Thanks and Regards
Paramhans

Not sure if you mean that your data you have attached to the gridview needs to be refreshed, or the entire page.

If the first one: try GridView.DataBind();

As I mentioned I'm calling the method Asynchronously so after the event is fired and after assigning the data source to the grid and after data binding it i want to post back the page to the server so that the latest contents of the page are visible on the page. I want to refresh the entire page on that event.

This is not possible. What you are trying to do is access the browser from the server side after the Page has already loaded. This cannot be done without some client initiation.

So, the code behind model is not really suitable for your purpose. However, an ugly way to do this would to be make the class method you are calling set a flag to define when it is finished, it will have to be on a per request/ session/ or global basis whichever suits your needs. Then put your GridView in an UpdatePanel, hide a Button on the page which causes an AsyncPostback after the page loads and inside the Button_Click method, make your PostBack wait until the data is loaded then call updatePanelName.Update() and complete the postback. Also make sure you dont start loading the data again duiring the postback.

try adding this script for auto refresh based on a particular interval..

 <script>
        //AutoRefresh();
        AutoRefresh1();
        var parselimit
        function AutoRefresh1() {
            var limit = "0:45"

            if (document.images) {
                parselimit = limit.split(":")
                parselimit = parselimit[0] * 60 + parselimit[1] * 1
            }

            window.onload = beginrefresh1
        }

        function beginrefresh1() {
            if (!document.images)
                return
            if (parselimit == 1) {
                __doPostBack('Auto_Refresh', '');
            }
            else {
                parselimit -= 1
                curmin = Math.floor(parselimit / 60)
                cursec = parselimit % 60
                if (curmin != 0)
                    curtime = "Page will auto refresh in " + curmin + " minutes and " + cursec + " seconds!"
                else
                    curtime = "Page will auto refresh in " + cursec + " seconds!"
                window.status = curtime
                setTimeout("beginrefresh1()", 1000)
            }
        }
    </script>
