I need a grid which auto refreshes after a given period using a timer. There is an example here: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/ajaxmanager/application-scenarios/ajaxify-timer/defaultcs.aspx
However, I don't want the whole grid to be rebound after each refresh and instead would like it to be seamless without the animation. When creating a standard radgrid bound to a datasource there is a refresh button top right, and when pressing this button it does exactly what I'm after - it doesn't rebind the grid and instead if there's new data it pops the new data in instead of creating an obvious refresh animation. Using a normal radgrid is there some way to simulate pressing this 'Refresh' button using a timer element and thereby avoiding the rebinding?
