Is there a way of dynamically showing information from a sql server database in a web page without doing a postback.

My goal is to display information from a sql server database everytime the underlying table has received a change. I will also need to have the ability to format the cells based on the information being populated.

If anyone knows of any technology on this topic, or has attempted to do something similar please respond. Even if it's not quite what I'm looking for, the advice given may spin me in the right direction.

It is my belief that this may require creating this web page through a sql server wizard that offers the ability to watch the table for underlying changes. However I am not so sure about how I would then format the information displayed. Has anyone used this technology before?
