What do you mean with it?
Refresh your program are total screen?

Every component can be refreshe in delphi. Use refresh for this. e.g. Form1.Refresh;

Well, maybe you can first refresh all the components on the form, before you refresh the form itself.

from delphi help :

Example

The following code refreshes all windowed controls of Form1, then refreshes Form1.

var
  I: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to Form1.ComponentCount-1 do
    if Form1.Components[i] is TWinControl then
      with Form1.Components[i] as TWinControl do
        Refresh;
  Form1.Refresh;
end;

A WinAPI function is redrawwindow for a certain rectangle or the UpdateWindow(handle) for the whole window.
But this function is already called by refresh.

If the "Refresh" method dosen´t work correctly,
uses the "Update" method.
