Can I set a datagrid to refresh after a specific amount of seconds?

In my project a lot of users work with the same data. They use Excel sheets next to the application and they want to see changes in a datagrid, without having to refresh the whole page everytime. It would be very usefull if I could set a datagrid to resfresh after an amount of seconds. Is this possible or do I have to create a feature request in partner portal?

Yes, this is possible. The data grid has a property called "Refresh time", which causes the grid to refresh after a certain number of seconds have passed. Set it to a value greater than zero to enable this behavior.


You could implement a scheduled event which performs a Java action that refreshes the object in the Datagrid periodically.

In this Java action add this: addRefreshClass(Object.getType());
