Refresh page using JavaScript.


<title>Refresh page using Javascript</title>
<script type="text/JavaScript">
	function RefreshPage(Period) 
		setTimeout("location.reload(true);", Period);
/* Optional code */
	var Today = new Date();
	var day = Today.getDate();
	var month = Today.getMonth();
	var year = Today.getFullYear();
	var hours = Today.getHours();
	var minutes = Today.getMinutes();
	var seconds = Today.getSeconds();
	document.write(day + "/" + month + "/" + year + " " + hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds)
/* End of Optional code */
<body  önload="javaScript:RefreshPage(1000);">

You can see the running date-time of today on page refresh. Here I gave 1000 milliseconds (1 sec) in the code (for page refresh) and you can change the value based on your requirement.
