Automatic refresh of Interactive reports (IRR)

Von Tobias Arnhold 8.06.2009
You have maybe heard how to refresh a page within a time period: Page auto refresh
I had the requirement to do this just within an Interactive report (IRR). It was a bit tricky but I could solve it.
Just add the following code into the page header:

<script type="text/javascript">
// automatic reload IRR
function fnc_reloadIRR () {
// start IRR reload
// repeat search after 30 seconds
window.setTimeout(fnc_reloadIRR, 30000);
// start function the first time after 20 seconds
window.setTimeout(fnc_reloadIRR, 20000);

More details about this solution here: IRR (Interactive report) auto refresh

Update 27.02.2010
Instead of using gReport.search('SEARCH'); you could also try this: gReport.pull();

You can also use the function setInterval().

Have a nice day,

I agree with Louis, you should use setInterval for this one. You don't have to repeat the call, making it more code efficient.



setInterval will work, but it'll refresh the entire page, whereas I believe the idea here will only refresh the data, keeping pagination, etc.
