    How do I get rid of the annoying clicks

    Hello,

    Internet explorer gives an annoying click everytime a page is loaded. So if I use an iframe page which refreshes every 5 seconds there is a click every 5 seconds.

    I know I can stop this clicking by updating my sound settings but is it possible to prevent clicking somehow for the visitors of my website?

    Try embedding subliminal messages in the page that would induce visitors to change their sound settings.

    It is a page that automatically refreshes every 5 seconds so that is not an option I think

    as the man says, this a system setting and not really anything you can affect.

    just imagine the havoc you could wreak if you could tho ... hmmm, not very pleasant tot the end user, and something akin to hacking methinks.

    besides, if you hadn't had your machine set up to use system sounds you wouldn't have noticed. and there's the crix of it - it's all down to what the user has. so, just because you've got it doesn't mean to say anyone else has, and, of course, vice versa.

    Okay,

    I'll leave it this way then.

    Meanwhile a was wondering if a rpc kind of solution could help. Say if a javascript applications was calling a server script every 5 seconds and would update another iframe if needed... or is this a little to complex to do?

    prolly not. but JSRS (wot you've essentially decsribed) is good for Rich UI apps.

    Why do you think there is a (hidden) iframe page that refreshes every 5 seconds. Just for fun?

    What it does is checking if there is someting new to display in another iframe. if so, then it reloads the other iframe.

    I tought maybe I could do this with a rpc kind of solution.... but if that is a silly thought let me know.

    You might want to try hiding the iframe to see if it still clicks onload. If it doesn't click you could try copying the content to a visible iframe after the hidden one refreshes.
