Refresh Method

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Refresh the contents of this attribute collection.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Sub Refresh() 
[Visual Basic 6]
Sub Refresh() 
HRESULT __stdcall Refresh();
void Refresh();
[JScript .NET]
public function Refresh()


Fetching a ContextAttributes collection does not ensure it is up to date, so you must call this method to refresh the collection. Adding and removing attributes does refresh 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)
   ' Delete the new F1 keyword from Solution Explorer.
   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)
   msg = ""
End Sub
