    Location.reload()

    The Location.reload() method reloads the resource from the current URL. Its optional unique parameter is a Boolean, which, when it is true, causes the page to always be reloaded from the server. If it is false or not specified, the browser may reload the page from its cache.

    If the assignment can't happen because of a security violation, a DOMException of type SECURITY_ERROR is thrown. This happens if the origin of the script calling the method is different from the origin of the page originally described by the Location object, usually when the script is hosted on a different domain.

    Syntax

    object.reload(forcedReload);
    

    Parameters

    forcedReload Optional
    Is a Boolean flag, which, when it is true, causes the page to always be reloaded from the server. If it is false or not specified, the browser may reload the page from its cache.

    // Reload the current page, without using the cache
    document.location.reload(true);
