auto refresh every 2 minutes with checkbox

Hi,

I need a checkbox, that when a user check it, then the page auto refresh every two minutes and after each refresh the checkbox remains checked until the user uncheck it, then after unchecked the auto refresh stops. Any idea?

How about this:

<input type="checkbox" name="toggle" value="1"
         onclick="location.href='yourpage.php?tab=<%=tab%>&toggle=' + (cb.checked ? 1 : 0 );"
         <%IF toggle=1 THEN echo "checked" %> 
>

<input type="checkbox" name="toggle" value="1" autocomplete="off">

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
if(window.location.hash == "#refresh"){
	$("[name=toggle]").prop("checked",true);
	pageRefresh = setTimeout(function(){window.location.reload()}, 120000);
}

$("[name=toggle]").click(function(){
	if(!$('[name=toggle]').prop('checked')){
		window.location.hash=""
		clearTimeout(pageRefresh);
	}
	else{
		window.location.hash = "refresh";
		pageRefresh = setTimeout(function(){window.location.reload()}, 5000);
	}
})
