Hi,

You may do the following.

Keep track of the record update time and using a timer keep checking this time with the current time and based on that u may refresh the data in ur application.

Hi,

I have a similar case where I need to display a message to the logged in user of an application (oracle 9i), if he has any assigned tasks. So, I created a timer (for 1 min.) in the main fmb (menu) of each module . When the timer expires it checks for any new entries in the tasks table & refreshes the data block. I read that timers need to be avoided as far as possible. Is there a better way to do the same thing with/without a timer?

Rgds
Indu.

I believe timer IS the way to do that.
