Refresh_Interval Initialization Variable

Visual Studio 2005

Specifies how often the file list in Visual SourceSafe Explorer automatically refreshes. You will only need to set this variable if you have set the Refresh_Display variable to Yes.

Refresh_Interval = <number of seconds>

You can set this variable in your Ss.ini file directly or in Visual SourceSafe Explorer. In Visual SourceSafe Explorer, use the SourceSafe Options dialog box, View tab. Select the Automatically refresh file list check box to enable the automatic refresh, or set the Refresh_Display initialization variable in the initialization file. You can specify the refresh interval in seconds.

Sets the refresh interval to 300 seconds (5 minutes):

Refresh_Display = Yes
Refresh_Interval = 300
