Was this comment helpful? Yes No jurgen_thys:Hi there,
I need to do something simular, I'm writing an auction site, I have two major Checks, the first most  check if there are any new articles on sale or off sall based on Start an Stop Time, this runs seperate from the clients sessions, the second check is: are there any new biding on the articles, in the client session or other client sessions, now I can do this with a classic updatepanel that returns the page to the server and check some Application var's, but every second?? that flickers, so I thought if I can put the first check in  a seperate thread (no problem) and the second in a thread that 'Pushes' the data updates (ultrawebgrid) to the clients page, then I can forget about update panel, because that's sending the entire page over the net
Is this possible? implement a sort of RSS ??
friendly greetings
jurgen

You might want to investigate COMET, the push counterpart of AJAX. There are a few implementations that work together with ASP.NET:

Thanks, that's the solution I was looking for, I'd never heard of Comet before, now I can go back to work.
