I've been away from daniweb for a long time but now need some help!
I have created a number of 'reports' for my customer, these are separate pages with controls to allow parameters to be set and a gridview to list records.
I now need to find a way to automatically cycle through a set of these pages.
The idea is that my customer wants to have these on display in their flashy new HQ.
I've started researching this and seen examples of using the Timer control to have a page perform a postback after a set period of time... this may be the way to do it but I'm not sure.
The obvious problem here is that I would want to keep all the page cycling logic in one page, and I also don't want to alter the existing 'report' pages.
I was thinking about a page that performs auto postback and has embedded into it one of the report pages.
That way the cycling logic (how often to cycle, which report to show next etc) would be in one page and would bring in whichever report page was needed next... writing this now it starts to sound like this could be done with a Master page?
Has anyone got any experience of doing something like this or can advise me on a possible solution.
I use VS 2010 and the website currently targets .Net 2 (although obviously I could change this to a never version if necessary.
Looking forward to taking part in the community again...
