AJAX refresh pause question
Posted on 2012-08-20
I have developed a SCADA app that uses AJAX to ping my DB on a regular interval, which serves as a silent refresh on the page. It works beautifully, with the one exception of when a user attempts to open a drop down menu. Because the menus are located on the child page, the silent refresh kicks the user out of the menu when triggered. Is there a way to freeze the refresh contingent upon the menu form being opened? This is tricky because the refresh command is located on the parent page.
Your help is most sincerely appreciated.
