Hi

I am new to Ajax and getting there, but am now stuck !

I have created a web service that can be called by Ajax to return a value. What I want now, is a timer to call that web service at a fixed interval

What I have done, works perfectly when you click a button, it calls the javascript function, which calls the web service and updates the value

I have done this by putting this into the Page_Load on the asp.net: ListBox1.Attributes.Add(@"onchange", "GetNotificationsCount('value');");

I have searched the internet and everything related to Timers seems to involve UpdatePanels and I can't work out how to get that to then link to a javascript function

So, what I need, is a timer that will call the GetNotificationsCount function at a defined interval, is this possible, if so how ?

Thank you very much
