FusionCharts - Data link not refreshing linked cf page

I am using Fusioncharts to create a bar chart, when you click the datapoint, it "links" to a new cf page and displays detail data.

Problem. it goes to next page, but when I go back and select another datapoint to view, it does not refresh the detail page until I hit the "refesh" button on the computer. How do I get the link to cause the refresh to occur? Not sure what is missing.

I've never used fusioncharts but that sounds like caching and this thread seems to support that idea. The usual anti-caching prescription is to append a random parameter to affected links and force browsers not to use the cached version.

ie   someLink.cfm?foo=xxx&bar=yyyy&rdm=#now().getTime()#

I think that'll work, but you want to look at their docs to see if there are any built in options for avoiding caching.

This solution is worth sharing. To do a one time: reload... works great with javascript <body>
-One time and immediate! - quick wonderful

<body onLoad="if (location.href.indexOf('reload')==-1)  location.replace(location.href+'?reload')">
