Refresh in SharePoint List

I have a SharePoint list custom display view that display key elements from a list.  Several of these elements are pulled from another list anytime the record is updated.

is there a way to simulate an update to do the refresh of the data?  I have a refresh icon I added and would like for it to some how kickoff the same workflow that runs on an update when it is clicked.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

the workflow should be in a loop to check for updates.
reset iis

you have a workflow.

it may be configured by setting options.

through visual studio using code-behind (XOML)
or
with sp designer application

then when workflow knows it has updated data then it will automatically refresh the page.

was looking for someone that has knowledge of javascript with sharepoint code that would be able to show how to do a refresh of the pages content by clicking a refresh button.  Does not seem like a huge issue to solve.

Due to hacking concerns, Microsoft cannot allow refresh requests on demand.
Another process is updating the SharePoint list per second ?

How to use a refresh method invocation in the Javascript Object Model ?

I'd visit w3cschools.com.  They have a good Javascript tutorial for you.

Using JOM invocations has been done for ages in SharePoint 2007.  
Same for the SharePoint Javascript Library.
