Auto refresh in ASP.NET only in client inactivity

Hi,

I know that to implement auto refresh in ASP.NET just put the tag <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="ss" /> (ss is the interval in seconds to refresh). But I need that the auto refresh was executed only if there is no activity on the client during the interval of "ss" seconds.

This is possible? How do I implement it?

The below steps will help you very much. this code is satisfying your requirement. But this was written to close the inactive window/browser, you change the code for refresh.


Step 1. Enter script below on Between Head Tags tab in Layout HTML.
 

      <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
      <!--
      var autoCloseTimer;
      var timeoutObject;
      var timePeriod = 5000; // 5 seconds
      var warnPeriod = 15000;   // 15 seconds

      function promptForClose()
      {
      autoCloseDiv.style.display = 'block';
       autoCloseTimer = setTimeout("definitelyClose()",warnPeriod);
      }


      function autoClose()
      {
       autoCloseDiv.style.display = 'block'; //shows message on page
       autoCloseTimer = setTimeout("definitelyClose()",timePeriod); //starts countdown to closure
      }

      function cancelClose()
      {
       clearTimeout(autoCloseTimer); //stops auto-close timer
       autoCloseDiv.style.display = 'none'; //hides message
      }

      function resetTimeout()
      {
        clearTimeout(timeoutObject); //stops timer
        timeoutObject = setTimeout("promptForClose()",timePeriod); //restarts timer from 0
      }


      function definitelyClose() {
          top.opener = self;
          top.window.close();
      }
      -->
      </SCRIPT>
       

Step 2. Enter following code on Inside Body Tag in Layout HTML (all on one line)

      onkeydown="resetTimeout();" onmousedown='resetTimeout();' onload="timeoutObject=setTimeout('promptForClose()',timePeriod);"

Step 3.
     a) Place a text box on your page where you want warning to appear.

     b) Press Ctrl+T and paste in the DIV code below. Feel free to modify the appearance.

     Change text to match actual time period set in script.

     The contents of the div only appear when the timer runs down.
     Clicking on cancel closes the div and resets the timer.

     <div id='autoCloseDiv' style="display:none">
       <center><p>Inactivity warning!<br>This window will autoclose in 15 seconds unless you hit 'Cancel.'</p>
       <input type='button' value='Close' onclick='definitelyClose();' />
       <input type='button' value='Cancel' onclick='cancelClose();' />
       </center>
     </div>

Hi, try the below code:
<body>
	Below content till &lt;/body&gt; can be anything...
	<div style="width:300px; height:200px;border:1px solid black;">
	Testing
	</div>
	
	<input id="testInput" />

	<input />
</body>

<script>

	var __TIME_TO_AUTO_REFRESH = 5000; // update only this... this is in milli-sec. "5000=5 sec"
	var __TIME_TO_UPDATE = 50;
	var __REFRESH_AT_COUNT = __TIME_TO_AUTO_REFRESH / __TIME_TO_UPDATE;
	var __CURRENT_REFRESH_COUNT = 0;

	function updateFlag(){
		if(__CURRENT_REFRESH_COUNT > __REFRESH_AT_COUNT){
			window.location.reload();
		}
		else{
			__CURRENT_REFRESH_COUNT++;
		}
	}

	function resetAutoRefresh(){
		__CURRENT_REFRESH_COUNT = 0;
	}
	
	window.onload = function(){
		setInterval("updateFlag()", __TIME_TO_UPDATE)
	}
	
	document.onmousedown = document.onkeydown = function(){
		resetAutoRefresh();
	}

</script>

Open in new window

What kind of activity are you thinking of? The meta-refresh timeout period will reset each time the user makes a request to the server. Or are you including AJAX calls in your inactivity?
