I am trying to voce a reload of an html page when calling app navigate.

I build a html file dynamically on local storage and it changes for various reasons.

I have tried the following:

var filepath = "/file/some.html?var=" + new Date().getTime();

app.navigate(filepath);

I have also put javascript in the header:

document.location.reload(true);

I have also put in the meta tags in the header for no-cache, etc. with no luck.

Only when I shut the app down and restart it does the cache seem to be cleared and the page reloaded.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Going to add some more clarification to this question.

It seems that Kendo is holding the old stuff in the DOM so how can I refresh the DOM or even reset it.

I am using Cordova so in the index.html where i download the new files if there was a way to force a refresh / reset of the DOM in some way to get Kendo to re-read the files during an app.navigate.

Hello Shawn,

Did you try setting the Kendo UI View reload option? If you set it to true every time you navigate to a certain view, the contents will be reloaded for the server. Here is a documentation article about it:

let me give that a shot, we did figure out a way to force the reload by recalling index.html in our cordova app using windows.location and that seemed to force kendo to re-read the files from local file system.
