Thanks for your reply.

The thing is, in my flowscript I can keep track of the state, but once 
the CachingURICoplet has displayed my final page it doesn't call the 
flowscript again because the page always comes from the cache.

So I need a programmatic way of saying:

state = start_again_at_page_one;

Alternatively, I need a way to hook into the event that says "user 
switched back to this tab on the layout" and send an event to this 
particular coplet to get it to invalidate its cache.

In fact, for future reference it would be useful to know something 
about hooking into, and sending, portal events.  Don't suppose you 
could give me some pointers?

Many thanks,
