How to auto refresh view?

Does the field auto_refresh in ir.actions.act_window will automatically refresh the view?

The Dashboard auto refresh is not working in v7..

Try, In action(ir.actions.act_window) of your object (XML file)

<field name="auto_refresh" eval="10"/>

Through this code, your view will be automatically refresh in 10 seconds

Try this,

    <record id="board_your_object_auto_refresh_form" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="name">your.object.form</field>
        <field name="model">board.board</field>
        <field name="type">form</field>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">
            <form string="Your Object">
                        <action colspan="4"  height="100" name="%(act_your_object_auto_refresh)d" string="Your Object String"/>

here act_your_object_auto_refresh is your action id and no need to put auto_refresh in action.

    <record id="your_object_auto_refresh_dashboard" model="ir.actions.act_window">
        <field name="name">Your Object Dashboard</field>
        <field name="res_model">board.board</field>
        <field name="view_type">form</field>
        <field name="view_mode">form</field>
        <field name="auto_refresh">10</field>
        <field name="usage">menu</field>
        <field name="view_id" ref="board_your_object_auto_refresh_form"/>

Hope this work for you.

I've set it for the Dashboard in Window actions, but this is not working

Instead of putting it in a new board i tried it in Sales board available in openerp, ie. I changed the auto_refresh value in Settings>>Actions>>Window Actions>>Sales (board) and it is not working..

Agree auto_refresh under action name "Helpdesk Requests", when set to 2 seconds never refreshes. Think I have seen questions before about this, can anyone confirm this works?

I have also not been able to get this to work. Is there a setting somewhere else that needs adjusting?
