    Ajax autoreferesh works fine with FireFox but doesn't work with IE

    hi I am using the following code for refreshing a div through ajax, it works fine FireFox but doesn't work at all with IE. Infact the function is called after every 10 seconds but it doesn't send the call to server while using IE. Can anyone will help me out please...

    function startTimer(sessionId, jsPageRefreshInterval){
    param = "refreshInterval";
    // alert(param + " = " + refreshInterval + " = " + sessionId + " = " + jsPageRefreshInterval);
    // Firefox, Opera 8.0+, Safari
    xmlHttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
    }catch (e){
    // Internet Explorer
    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
    }catch (e){
    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    }catch (e){
    alert("Your browser does not support AJAX!");
    return false;
    xmlHttp.open("GET","JobControllerUtilServlet?" + "sessionId=" + sessionId + "&paramChanged=true&param=" + param + "&value=" + refreshInterval, true);
    xmlHttp.onreadystatechange = function()
    if(xmlHttp.readyState == 4 || xmlHttp.readyState=='complete')
    document.getElementById('theTable').innerHTML = xmlHttp.responseText;
    dkc=setTimeout("startTimer('" + sessionId + "', '" + jsPageRefreshInterval + "');", 10000);
    return true;

    Why do you have || xmlHttp.readyState=='complete' to check for the state of the request? Take that part out since the readyState will always return a number.

    Also, why are you returning true for the function before you can even sent the request? I would suggest removing the return as well.
