How to refresh a page by using JavaScript

In JavaScript, we can use the location.reload() method to refresh or reload a current webpage.

The location.reload() method accepts optional argument boolean, if we pass true the page will be reloaded from the server. if we pass false or unspecified the page will be reloaded from the browser cache.

// page loads from the server

location.reload(true);


// page loads from the cache

location.reload(false);

We can also reload the page by creating our own reload button.

Here is an example:

<button class="btn">reload</button>
const btn = document.querySelector('.btn')

btn.addEventListener('click',function(){
    location.reload();
})
