Automatically refreshing issue

Just wanted to make sure you all know about my latest invention :) It's an AJAX implementation on the IssueTrackerProduct that updates an issue page you might be looking at if it's changed on the server. This will become very useful if there are several people working on the tracker and you don't want to make sure you're reading the very latest when you post your followup.

This accomplished by having a periodic Javascript (about 30 seconds at the time of writing) that constantly does a timestamp check against the server. If the timestamp changes, the issue you're viewing will most likely have changed and that's where AJAX kicks in. The AJAX script reloads certain parts of the page and also changes the title of the page (observe that in the screencast).

One thing I just noticed about the screencast is that the debug-mode was switched on which means that there's lot's of geeky stuff at the bottom of the Internet Explorer window. Oops!

Awesome. I have been using issuetracker for a project I am on for almost 2 years now. AJAX is some cool stuff. Love your work man!

Thanks Rob. In fact I'm having some problems with it in IE5 so for the moment it's been stalled in the CVS. I'll crack it soon.

In the meantime, if you like the issuetracker could you perhaps give this page a visit
