Reload a web page with a javascript function

I need to force a page reload from a javascript function but document.reload() seems not to work. How do I do it?


The document object is not used to reload a window, that is the reason for your problem. Below are three examples, in these cases in the onclick event.

This code will reload the current window. If it is shown in a frame, then only this frame will be reloaded. If you need to reload another frame, then you may want to address it as shown in the last 2 examples.

<input type="button" value="Reload Page" onClick="window.location.reload()">

<input type="button" value="Reload Page" onClick="history.go(0)">

<input type="button" value="Reload Page" onClick="window.location.href=window.location.href">

<input type="button" value="Reload 1st Frame" onClick="window.parent.frames[0].location.reload();">

<input type="button" value="Reload 2nd Frame" onClick="window.parent.frames[1].location.reload();">

Content-type: text/html
