Best way to push data to an update panel? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1318453554 posted

    I have requirement to push new messages as they arrive that works similiar to an app called YammerFall featured in this video; the video is in a language I cannot read (Japanese?) but basically new message appear at the top and the older messages scroll down or push down.


    I am polling for new messages using a web api and as they come in messages are added at a rate such as every 10 seconds.

    The panel where the data is displayed is inside an UpdatePanel using the Toolscript manager so hopefully this is possible?

    My attempt (which I am about to start coding while this post is being responded to) is going to be attempting to dynamically add a control at runtime.

    If this works I will let you know, but if anyone knows of a better or suggested approach let me know

    Thank you, I will name a hospital after you someday if you answer.
