View Full Version : AppleScript for auto-refreshing a webpage

Dec 27, 2004, 05:51 AM

Firstly, I hope this is in the right forum. I wasn't sure whether to post this thread here or in the general Software forum.

I'm using Mac OS9.2.1, and the AppleScript software that shipped with OS9 (I think it's version 1.6)

Is it possible to write an AppleScript program that would automatically refresh a webpage of my choice at set intervals, in either Internet Explorer 5.1.7 or Mozilla 1.3? If so, how is it done?

For example, in Internet Explorer, I have 4 windows open, and one of those windows points to http://news.bbc.co.uk (for example). How can I have the window with BBC News in it (which may not be the active window) refresh every 45 seconds?

Thanks for the help
