Hi! I am using the below code to retrieve xml file, it works fine.

What I want to do is to refresh the message every 3 minutes, how will I do revise my code to  achieve my needs?

Any ideas?
function onAjaxLoad() {
    
    var req = new Sys.Net.WebRequest();
    req.set_url('xml/welcomeMessage.xml');
    req.add_completed(ajaxDataCallBack);
    req.invoke();
}

function ajaxDataCallBack(response) {
    //debugger;
    var content = $get('middleText');
    var xml = response.get_xml();
    if (xml == null)
        Sys.Debug.fail('Could not load the welcome message');
    var welcomeMessageNode = xml.getElementsByTagName('message');
    if (welcomeMessageNode.length > 0) {
        if (welcomeMessageNode[0].textContent) //check compatiblity...
            content.innerHTML = welcomeMessageNode[0].XMLContent // for firefox...
        else // for internet explorer...
            content.innerHTML = welcomeMessageNode[0].xml;
    }
}

Sys.Application.add_load(onAjaxLoad);

What about :

var IfYouWantToStopItWithClearInterval = setInterval("onAjaxLoad()", 3 * 60 * 1000);

don't forget the update on the last line :


function someinit() {
    var IfYouWantToStopItWithClearInterval = setInterval("onAjaxLoad()", 3 * 60 * 1000);
    onAjaxLoad();
}

function onAjaxLoad() {
    var req = new Sys.Net.WebRequest();
    req.set_url('xml/welcomeMessage.xml');
    req.add_completed(ajaxDataCallBack);
    req.invoke();
}

function ajaxDataCallBack(response) {
    //debugger;
    var content = $get('middleText');
    var xml = response.get_xml();
    if (xml == null)
        Sys.Debug.fail('Could not load the welcome message');
    var welcomeMessageNode = xml.getElementsByTagName('message');
    if (welcomeMessageNode.length > 0) {
        if (welcomeMessageNode[0].textContent) //check compatiblity...
            content.innerHTML = welcomeMessageNode[0].XMLContent // for firefox...
        else // for internet explorer...
            content.innerHTML = welcomeMessageNode[0].xml;
    }
}

Sys.Application.add_load(someinit);

var IfYouWantToStopItWithClearInterval; // global var

function someinit() {
    IfYouWantToStopItWithClearInterval = setInterval("onAjaxLoad()", 3 * 60 * 1000);
    onAjaxLoad();
}

function onAjaxLoad() {
    var req = new Sys.Net.WebRequest();
    req.set_url('xml/welcomeMessage.xml');
    req.add_completed(ajaxDataCallBack);
    req.invoke();
}

function ajaxDataCallBack(response) {
    //debugger;
    var content = $get('middleText');
    var xml = response.get_xml();
    if (xml == null)
        Sys.Debug.fail('Could not load the welcome message');
    var welcomeMessageNode = xml.getElementsByTagName('message');
    if (welcomeMessageNode.length > 0) {
        if (welcomeMessageNode[0].textContent) //check compatiblity...
            content.innerHTML = welcomeMessageNode[0].XMLContent // for firefox...
        else // for internet explorer...
            content.innerHTML = welcomeMessageNode[0].xml;
    }
}

Sys.Application.add_load(someinit);
