I am using a custom quick view with ajax whwn i add a product in cart using this quick view the mini cart show the count of the product but its not show the product there but after refreshing the page the product is in minicart
here is my code used to add to cart
Ajax add to cart function
function addtoCart(miniurl){
var miniurl=miniurl;
jQuery("#success_message").html('<img src="/demo/media/images/loading-round.gif" alt="Loading..." width="77" height="73">');
var url;
url = jQuery('#product_addtocart_form').attr('action');
url = url.replace("checkout/cart", "ajax/index"); // New Code
if ('https:' == document.location.protocol) {
    url = url.replace('http:', 'https:');
var data = jQuery('#product_addtocart_form').serialize();
    data += '&isAjax=1';
try {
        success:function (data) {
         var qty = jQuery("#qty").val();
         var curqty = jQuery(".header-minicart .count").html();
         var newqty=parseInt(qty)+parseInt(curqty);
         jQuery(".header-minicart .count").html(newqty);
        //jQuery(".header-minicart .label").html('Cart ('+newqty+')');
} catch (e) {
Custom controller for add to minicart
class Minicart_Custom_minicartcontroller extends Mage_Core_Controller_Front_Action{
    public function add_to_minicart()
    Mage::log("control get",null,"mini.log");
    $layout = Mage::getSingleton('core/layout');
    $block = $layout->getBlock('cart_sidebar');
    $html = $block->toHtml();
    return $this;
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
And here is the method that i passed the custom controller url to the addtocart ajax function
<?php $miniurl=Mage::getUrl('quick/controllers/add_to_minicart');?>
<button type="button" title="Add to Cart" class="button btn-cart" id="addto-cart" onClick="addtoCart('<?php echo $miniurl;?>')">Add to Cart</button>

 In addtoCart funtion it seems that you have only update the quantity of mini cart but not update the  content.

You have to update the content alos  in ajax success like




And in controller where ajax request is sent add below code


 if ($this->getLayout()->getBlock('cart_sidebar')) {
                            $sidebarCart = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('cart_sidebar')->toHtml();
                        if ($this->getLayout()->getBlock('cart_sidebar_mini')) {
                            $mini_cart = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('cart_sidebar_mini')->toHtml();
$ajaxData['sidebar_cart'] = $sidebarCart;
                        $ajaxData['mini_cart'] = $mini_cart;
