I have a a button that launches an RJS call and it works beautifully. It
updates a bunch of other areas on the page and brings in the most recent
data. Great stuff!
I would like to enable 'auto-updates' for my app - basically I would like to
have the browser periodically invoke the RJS call so that every 60 seconds
or so, everything is updated.
I know that Prototype has the 'PeriodicalUpdater' but that is based around
AjaxUpdater and from everything I have read and seen, AjaxRequest is used in
RJS, not AjaxUpdater.
Has anyone done anything like this? Can anyone point me in the right
direction and rescue me from meta-refresh hell?
Any help *very* much appreciated.
