I want to reRender "TopPanel" from javascript, is there any way to do this in visualforce ?

<apex:outputPanel id="TopPanel">

<script type="text/javascript">
function CreateTabs()
    //rerenderCode for TopPanel
  • Can't you just simulate clicking on hidden commandlink or something like that that would have rerender="TopPanel" in it? I'd think twice before inspecting & emulating the request being sent when commandbutton/link is clicked and response parsed back... I suspect this code could change in future.

This is what an actionFunction is for

<apex:actionFunction name="rerenderTopPanel" rerender="TopPanel" />
<apex:outputPanel id="TopPanel">

<script type="text/javascript">
    function createTabs() {
