Refresh UserControl
I have a user control that I am using on my index page. The control displays product info. that is pulled from a database. How can I refresh the product info. at certain intervals on the index page?
Please be descriptive, I am a beginner.

In order to refresh a user control, you'll need to refresh the page that control is on. You can do this with standard HTML refresh techniques.

Is there any way to update a user control without refreshing the entire page?

The end result of a user control is HTML. That HTML is lumped together with all the HTML of the page it's on. If you want to refresh the control, you need to refresh the whole page. If you wish to have a part of the page be able to refresh without refreshing the whole entire page, then you need to utilize whatever capabilities HTML has (to the extent and capabilities you wish to support). One such means is using an iframe for the refreshable part of the page. But then you aren't really using a user control, but putting another page in a frame.
