Hi Antonio,

>From your follow on description I think AJAX likely meets your needs.

Ajax allows you application or web page to retrieve data from, a server asynchronously (in the background) without interfering with the display and then altering the display later when the data is retrieved.

Subject: [tpm] [OT] Javascript to watch for certain KW from a web page


I know it's kind of OT, but since we have a lot of web experts here, let me try my luck here first. 

I have zero knowledge of Javascript, I'm wondering if you could give me a big favor to show me how to watch for certain keyword from a web page using Javascript. 

Basically, I have a slow updating web page, and I need a client side Javascript to watch for a specific keyword in that page and pop up an window if the keyword is found. 

As I have zero knowledge of Javascript, I hope that your answer is as complete as possible. 

Thanks a lot in advance
