Refresh the page

Recommended Posts


Am using <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5"> for page refresh for every 5 seconds in HTML.

I have 6 to 7 tabs in my page.

If am in 5th tab , after refresh it goes to default page.

How can i stay in 5th tab only even after refresh in HTML.


Thanks and Regards

Yep! You'll need to play with some Javascript for this one!


I'd like to ask why you'd need to refresh the page every five seconds. Is there data that needs updating?

Hi Funce 

Thanks for the reply.

I have a dynamic data which keeps on updating.So i need a refresh.

Do you have any java script for this implementation.


Thanks and Regards

Hi Dsonesuk

Am trying to do it in HTML.Am not getting it.

How to use localstorage in html.I tried like below code .


function openCity(evt, cityName) {
    var i, tabcontent, tablinks,temp;
    tabcontent = document.getElementsByClassName("tabcontent");
    for (i = 0; i < tabcontent.length; i++) {
        tabcontent.style.display = "none";
    tablinks = document.getElementsByClassName("tablinks");
    for (i = 0; i < tablinks.length; i++) {
        tablinks.className = tablinks.className.replace(" active", "");
         if (tablinks === cityName) {
                        tablinks.className = "active";
                         localStorage.activeLI = i;
    document.getElementById(cityName).style.display = "block";
    evt.currentTarget.className += " active";


Please suggest with this, how to proceed.
