    Hello firend

    When we use AJAX,User does something ,And after user did an action on interface ,then interface will change,But in this case it shows me without any refresh or without any action on interface,Please know ne if you know any tutorial about this case.

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't gone into details of Gmail but yes one thing I know is that it auto refreshes to save the draft automatically after some specific time. It would have set flag to check new e-mails the same way. Even I would like to hear the technology from somebody who has worked on Gmail technology........

    With regards,

    you can also start looking at ajax push methods to see how they may have implemented that (*where the server 'pushes' info out to the browser without a client browser request)

    Hello firend

    I search and ask about " ajax push methods " ,It seems when we use that we cann't close connection,But that can cause problems - sometimes the page won't seem to fully load, and other problems,May you give me more points and reference about that?


    GOOD LUCK!

    Gmail is just a large mix of AJAX and JavaScript. In fact you can read all the JavaScript source.

    If you want to know about the Gmail AJAX, you need to look into AjaXSLT.
