Refresh rate on AJAX refresh
OutSystems 5.1

Have a parameter to the AJAX refresh to issue a refresh on timely base

This is *only* useful if it can also execute workflow to update the backing variables, data sets, etc. as well.

In the meantime, you can do the following:

1. Create a button of type "Ajax"
2. Link that button with an action that updates the backing variables and calls AjaxRefresh; set the style of the button to have "display: none" (do NOT set "display" property to "false"!)
3. Add a piece of JavaScript that calls the button on the requested basis

It's a quick workaround that takes very little time to do; not ideal, but it can be done if needed.

That's exactly the reason: workflow :-)

And yes we created the solution as you described. But it would be useful to have a property to the AJAX refresh to set the rate and do the things we want.
Hi Joop,

Check how the Lightweight Ajax Refresh component. Your wish has been granted!
