For those who have answered my previous question in this forum, this is a feature of the social network I am writing. I have written a chat room in AJAX, and now I need help. I have it set to write the posted messages to the innerHTML of a textarea. document.getElementByID('postedText').innerHTML = document.myForm.time.value = ajaxRequest.responseText; where the response is the return from an SQL database on the chat server. First, is my JS innerHTML sound? Second, how do I make it update when anyone says anything, instead of when that user says something (for instance, Bob says "hello." he sees that he said hello. Nancy does not. Nancy says "hello." She now sees that Bob had said hello first, and Bob will not know she has said hello until he says something else. I don't like this. How do I fix it? Please and thank you.
