View Full Version : Refresh, Refresh, Refresh, it's all about refreshing ...

The question put in a simpler form:

Us programmers do a lot of things behind the scenes. We change variables, properties of objects, we tweak and alter existence, we do everything with abstract symbols and techniques.

To display all of this we need a powerful method which we have for over a decade called refresh(); (some used to say repaint(), redraw(), rewhatever();)

How can we refresh a panel without having to exit it?

The entire Multi Platform InstallShield community will highly appreciate this answer (good or bad), or won't we?

Is it refreshExtendedProperties() ?

I'm using the Basic MSI project and needing to display results on the form. The example code for MsiGetProperty and MsiSetProperty in online help (to see it hit F1 | Search tab | search for "Func1(HWND);") works, but you can't see the results until you use the next & previous buttons. My code is doing the same thing. So how do I refresh the form without leavening it?

refreshextendedproperties() works for me
