Hi there!

To avoid reaching server´s "idle" time, every 4min (without the user´s action) a javascript routine "refreshes" the page this (logged in) user is, so that he/she will not need to re-login. This works as expected.

My problem: some specific pages (where there are videos to be seen) should NOT be refreshed (ever), and I thought I could create something like this:

<% If "there-is-video-in-this-page" Then %>
 <% Else %>
  <body onLoad="timeout_routine();">
<% End If %>  

But it seems as the onLoad attribute is happening with or without the existence of videos. The conditional "there-is-video-in-this-page" works as expected in other parts of the code, by the way...

Could you please explain to me why it does not work as expected and, of course, how to fix that?

Thanks a lot,
