I am loading an image into a <div> tag from an image library. I want to to refresh this <div> tag every 10sec so that new images uploaded can be seen.

Is there any good solution?

@abhik: Use the backtick character if you want to show HTML tags in your posts (check the formatting reference when you write your question). Thanks for joining SharePoint Overflow! –  Alex Angas Sep 26 '10 at 23:40

Here is what I suggest

  1. Make you webpart ajax based i.e. put that inside a Update Panel.
  2. Use the ASP.net Timer control that can initiate a post back and on onload you can update your image property.

more on timer control here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.timer.interval.aspx more on update panel with timer control: http://ajax.net-tutorials.com/controls/timer-control/

I am not sure how this differs from your image rotator question. I'll provide the same suggestion, a pure JavaScript (no jQuery) solution:


It only works for authenticated users. For anonymous access, you'd need to use a different data source.
