The Module that represents the module to refresh. Each Type in this module will be refreshed.

Properties and events are cached by TypeDescriptor for speed. Typically, they are constant for the lifetime of an object. However, extender providers and designers can change the set of properties on an object. If they do, they can call this method to clear the property and event descriptors of the object. This method is used only at design time. It is not used during run time.

Before you make a call to the Refresh method to clear the cache, you need to call the GetProperties method for the specific module to cache the information first.

This method also raises a Refreshed event to notify all classes that want to be notified when the property set of a component changes.
