i have this code . but it is giving error

Could you give me the link to the post that explains what your code is supposed to do?

My code is supposed to create a web server which then send High or Low commands to the GPIO pins on my arduino board which then activate a 12 volt valve. But it can only send the commands once after the button on the web server is pushed. I want the commands to repeatedly send in a loop, I have experimented with a while loop which somewhat worked but I was not able to break the loop from the web server which is a requirement for my project.

OK, now I understand what you are trying to do. My initial thought was a bit of Javascript code included in the html. There probably are other methods available with HTML5 but I would have to look.
