Reload page in js: RefreshPage

There are many ways to reload / refresh a page in javascript. One of them is as in describes:


Today I found some tools which are shipped with ASP.NET/SharePoint to reload a page. The big advantage of them they are designed to work with SharePoint and take all possible aspects of page life cycle into account. The javascript function to refresh a page is just called, guess..: RefreshPage and it resides in init.js:

function RefreshPageTo(evt, url, bForceSubmit) {ULSA13:;
	CoreInvoke('_RefreshPageTo', evt, url, bForceSubmit);

It takes at least one parameter, the dialogResult: 1, 0 or -1 which are SP.UI.DialogResult.OK or SP.UI.DialogResult.cancel or SP.UI.DialogResult.invalid.

The only thing it does is to invoke a function from core.js:

function _RefreshPageTo(evt, url, bForceSubmit)
	return _SubmitFormPost(url, bForceSubmit);

The _RefreshPage function from core.js validates the data and invokes _SubmitFormPost:

In the end it gets the main form (“aspnetForm”) and invokes submit on it:
