How to Refresh/Reload a Page with jQuery/JS
- Get current page address (URL)
- Redirect the browser to another page
- Reload/refresh the same page
The History interface indeed provides a means to manage the browser's session history, which includes the pages visited in the current tab or frame.
The history.go() method allows you to navigate the browser's history by a specific number of steps. Passing a parameter of '0' to the method reloads the current page, effectively refreshing it without changing the history state. This is a useful technique for reloading a page without affecting the browsing history.
If the current page was loaded by a POST request , you may want to use
- location.href = location.href
- window.location = window.location
- window.self.window.self.window.window.location = window.location
Refresh a page after certain delay jQuery
The setTimeout() method is commonly used to execute code after a specified period of time. It takes two parameters: the first is the function you want to execute, and the second is the delay in milliseconds before the function is executed.
In your explanation, you rightly mentioned that the delay value is provided in milliseconds. If you want to delay the execution in seconds, you need to multiply the number of seconds by 1000 to convert it to milliseconds. This is a useful approach for creating time-based actions, like automatically refreshing a page after a certain interval.
