ContextAttributes.Refresh Method

Refresh the contents of this attribute collection.

Namespace: EnvDTE
Assembly: EnvDTE (in envdte.dll)

void Refresh ()
void Refresh ()
function Refresh ()

Fetching a ContextAttributes collection does not ensure that it is up to date, so you must call this method to refresh the collection. Adding and removing attributes refreshes the collection.

Sub RefreshExample()
   ' Get a reference to Solution Explorer.
   Dim SolnEx As Window = DTE.Windows.Item _
   (Constants.vsWindowKindSolutionExplorer)
   Dim CA As ContextAttribute

   ' List the current attributes associated with Solution Explorer.
   ListAttr(SolnEx, CA)

   ' Associate a new F1 keyword with Solution Explorer.
   SolnEx.ContextAttributes.Add("ANewKeyword", 900, _
   vsContextAttributeType.vsContextAttributeLookupF1)
   ListAttr(SolnEx, CA)
   SolnEx.ContextAttributes.Refresh()
   ' Delete the new F1 keyword from Solution Explorer.
   SolnEx.ContextAttributes.Item(3).Remove()
   ListAttr(SolnEx, CA)
End Sub

Sub ListAttr(ByVal SolnEx As Object, ByVal CA As ContextAttribute)
   ' Support function for CATest(). Lists the current attributes 
   ' associated with Solution Explorer.
   Dim msg As String

   MsgBox("Number of context attributes in Solution Explorer: " & _
   SolnEx.ContextAttributes.Count)
   For Each CA In SolnEx.ContextAttributes
      msg = msg & CA.Name & Chr(13)
   Next
   MsgBox(msg)
   msg = ""
End Sub
