Requery/Refresh Form Control

corydeppencorydeppen Posts: 3Member
I have a form in an ASP page that contains a drop down list with a button that opens another page if the user wants to add another entry to the list. Once the user adds a new entry and returns to the original form, the newly added item doesn't appear in the list.

I was hoping someone knew of a way, via JavaScript or ASP, to refresh or requery the drop down list control () so the new item appears in the list.

Thanks,
Cory

    I'm guessing your drop down list is loaded through ASP? if so I'm also assuming that you are loading the data from a file or database and adding there entry as well? If that is the case then you can simply reload the page with JS or VBScript as in....... onClick="functiontoupdateDB;javascript:window.location='myASPPage.asp'"

    Thanks for the reply. I was considering refreshing the page, but that would require the user to re-enter all of the data they've already input. Can you think of a way to refresh just the single control without refreshing the entire page?

    Thanks,
    Cory

    Sorry, I'm not sure how you could do that, but you could refresh the page by using a ASP query string, or cookies to pass the data back into the form on the refresh.

    Sorry I should have been more clear, I don't mean to refresh the page with asp, you would have to use js or vbscript for that, but you could pass the values in a qrystring for example

    [code]
    ....
    '>



    function RefreshMe()
    {
    var Name = document.frmOne.txtName.value;
    window.location = "myASPPage.asp?Name=" + Name;
    }
    [/code]

    will refresh the page and automaticly set the value of the passed value into the text box, if it is blank then nothing will show up for the value.
