programmatically "refresh" web page or browser or user control

Can Javascript programmatically do the same thing as pressing "F5"  (browser refresh) inside of a browser (like IE5 or Chrome)?

I have a User Control which, during the page life-cycle, gets assigned to it's datasource and lists the items it is given (according to what comes back from the database).

Is there a way to cause a control to do this programmatically after deleting or adding list items?

I am in Visual Studio 2010.

In javascript, if you want to refresh a page you can do:


Open in new window

A Ctrl+F5 (that invalidate all browser cache) is like:
