GeoSpatial Portal auto refresh source

Hi all,

I need to automatically (ok, let say semi automatic, every n seconds) refresh data source in Portal? Do you have any example of script that can do it working?

I will make presentation, and I know that for customer this is main feature to compare with ESRI portal.

Re: GeoSpatial Portal auto refresh source

Cześć Tomasz,


What should work is using of $GP.map.refresh(). The bottleneck is that it refreshes all layer and not only a particular layer. To create a loop using JQuery tools should be enough:


setInterval(refreshMap, 5000); // refresh each 5000 miliseconds

function refreshMap()
