Problem with refresh button breaking automatic refresh

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by brian lanning, Jul 29, 2003.

  1. As a public service, I'm posting the solution to a problem I had. The
    bizarre thing is that I think this should have created an error.
    Instead, it sort of worked, but not quite. Many are familiar with
    this line:

    <meta http-equiv="refresh"; content="10";url="DataForm.aspx">

    Instead, I inadvertently made it look like this:

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content='10;url="DataForm.aspx"'>

    The result was that the auto refresh worked, but only until the user
    clicked the refresh button in the browser. After clicking the button,
    the auto refresh wouldn't work anymore.

    I wish this had been reported as a syntax error or something similar.
    It almost slipped through integration testing.
