Dear Robert,

We would like to display how a molecular geometry changed during minimizations/MD simulations running on our server. The MD program continuously updates the input file (in pdb format) saved on the server. We use jmolApplet to display the model ( jmolApplet([800,600],'load <?php echo "$filename"; ?>; ');) .

Thank you very much

What is changing the coordinates? Not a file load?

Applet or Application?

JavaScript timeout with Jmol.script(appletid, "refresh")  ?

Dear Developers,

I wonder if there is a way or command to refresh the display of a model when the coordinates are changed. I am interested in display a model dynamically whose coordinates are changed probably every second. 

I have tried to clear cache before reload the model, but apparently, Jmol memorizes the initial molecular information and the display of the model does not change at all, although the coordinates have already been changed.

Is there a way for jmol to handle my problem?
