I have one vf page which contains one custom button and two pageblocktable. On click of button my batch class will run and 1st pageblocktable will show status of batch class which is currently running and the second pageblocktable will show the the records which are processed in the batch. As of now my 2nd pageblocktable is also showing previous records which got processed in batch class. Also I need to rerender the 2nd pageblocktable once the status of my batch class is complete.


<!-- Here is the css styles that will be used for the progress bars -->
        background-color: #f8f8f8;
        border:1px solid #DDDDDD;
        height: 19px;
        width: 450px;
        -moz-border-radius: 5px; 
        -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
        background-color: #F7B64B;
        border:1px solid #E78F08;
        height: 100%;
        margin: -1px;
        text-align: center;

  • After using actionPoller for 2nd pageblock it refreshes the the table, but how to rerender the 2nd pageblock once the status of first pageblock is completed. Jun 16, 2015 at 18:13
  • Also what will be the view state of page, will it has any performance issue by using actionPoller, as in debug log I can see debug after each interval Jun 16, 2015 at 18:15

You need to rerender the second PageBlockTable(having id 'ar') in your actionPoller.

<apex:actionPoller rerender="jobs,ar" interval="5" />

Hope this helps.
