AJAX and screen flicker [message #184422] Wed, 26 July 2006 09:06

I am attempting to create an AJAX chat client for OAE. So far, it works ok - I have a couple of application processes that grab users and messages from the server periodically using javascript and the setTimeout method.

The only problem is, when I set the innerHTML value of a DIV or the value property of a text area, the screen flickers - like it's redrawing the elements, even though I'm not re-posting the page or doing a page refresh. Essentially, I'm setting the innerHTML of a div to the results of an AJAX call to get the user list. This causes the chat to be kinda choppy and flickery.

Has anyone encountered this and know a solution?
