Question How to make the screen refresh every 5 seconds in ASP.NET MVC3

Solutions/Answers:

Solution 1:

You could do the same in MVC:

<script type="text/javascript">
function timedRefresh(timeoutPeriod) {
    setTimeout(function() {
        location.reload(true);
    }, timeoutPeriod);
}
</script>
<body onload="JavaScript:timedRefresh(5000);">
    ...
</body>

or using a meta tag:

<head>
    <title></title>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5" />
</head>
<body>
    ...
</body>

or in your controller action:

public ActionResult Index()
{
    Response.AddHeader("Refresh", "5");
    return View();
}
