Hi all,

I am working on a project where I want to refresh a part of the web page where i have a user control that contain dynamic data.user control will load data from a text file as this text file will update frequently. I need to refresh the user control alone not the whole page using javascript. I tried the following but it did not worked for me.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<%@ Register src="ucTest.ascx" tagname="ucTest" tagprefix="uc1" %>
<script  runat="server">
   void button_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
       lbltest.Text = "Refreshed by server side event handler at " + DateTime.Now + ".<br>";
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
   <title>How to update an UpdatePanel with JavaScript</title>
   <script type="text/javascript">
   function UpdPanelUpdate()
       __doPostBack("<%= button.ClientID %>","");
   <form id="form1"  runat="server">
      <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
   <a href="java<!-- no -->script:UpdPanelUpdate()">Update the Panel</a>
    <asp:Button ID="button" runat="server" OnClick="button_Click" style="display:none;"/>
         <asp:UpdatePanel runat="server" ID="UpdatePanel1" UpdateMode="Conditional">
                <uc1:ucTest ID="ucTest1"  runat="server" />
                <asp:Label ID="lbltest" runat="server">
               <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="button" EventName="Click" />

my user control is.
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="ucTest.ascx.cs" Inherits="ucTest" %>
<table border="3">
            <%  Response.WriteFile("TextFile.txt"); %>

Here TextFile.txthas some information that will be changed frequently.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you SanjeevSingh for your reply.
I don't know how to use the timer here I need just to refresh the usercontrol when I click a button from javascript, that is all my requirement.
