JavaScript view auto advance and reload

Here is a great way to make a view reload and advance a count number of entries and repeat.

Here is a great way to make a view reload and advance a count number of entries and repeat.

Just take this code and paste it in the HTML HeadContent:

start:=@If(@IsError(@TextToNumber(@UrlQueryString("Start"))) ; -20 ; 
count:=@If(@IsError(@TextToNumber(@UrlQueryString("Count"))) ; 2 ; @TextToNumber
@Set("start";@If(start >600 ; -
20;start)); "<script>"+@NewLine+ "function textticker() 
{"+@NewLine+ "location.href = '/"+@WebDbName+"/"+@URLEncode("platform";@Subset
(@ViewTitle;1))+"?OpenView⋆t=" +
+ "&Count=20';}"+@NewLine+ "setTimeout('textticker()',10000);"+@NewLine+
" </script>"

If the view is missing parameters to begin with, you get a view standard view before it begins to process correctly.
