Push updates to grid


In my application, I have a form which updates values in a database, and a grid which reflects those values on a different page. This grid page may be opened by multiple people.

None of the connector libraries are used (nor can they for this particular application).

Is there a way to have the php code push an update out to the grid clients? Or is there something in the grid code which can be made to auto refresh every minute or so? I don’t want the client to repeatedly have to hit refresh to check for new entries

You may try to use updateFromXML() method:

with setInterval function.

For example:

setInterval('mygrid.updateFromXML("grid_updated.xml")', 60000)
