I have a webpage that has 3 frames on 1 html page.
I need to refresh one of the 3 frames every second to show updates to the frame.
Does anyone know how I can do this with a very limited browser?
I appreciate any help.

You could use meta tags, but setting to refresh every second would barely give the page time to load, let alone to be viewed....

Cool, it worked! Thanks.
I did a search for "meta refresh" here and found the code.
I've got a problem though. I can't figure out how to make it refresh only the 1 frame rather then the whole page.
Any ideas with that?

Just put the meta tag in the page you want refreshing: and have the content point to the page, rather than the index, or the main frame.

Wow, that sure was a dumb question wasn't it?
I've been programming straight for more hours then I can count. It might be time to take a break.
Thank-you very much for your help, things are working perfect.

You may want to reconsider where you post this kind of thing though - this topic really belongs in the html forum (since PHP is a server side scripting language). I'm sure there's something in the edit function that allows you to change the forum for the topic, though I don't know for sure (having never had to use it).

Yah, you're right. I only see a delete check box that will allow me to delete the thread. If a Moderator is around perhaps s/he will move it.
Origionally, I thought that there would be a PHP function or method to refresh a page. But using the META tag is perfect.
