Java for refresh?

I'm designing a form that has various lines of text that I want to hide depending on some calculated values, so that the user only sees the appropriate one. It all works fine using @functions in the hide formula.

Now if I change the data, the computed value (that is also shown on the form) changes straight away when i move from the field I was altering. However if the result is such that the lines hidden should have changed, they don't - I have to press F9 to get them to change.

Now it occurs to me that I might be able to put something into the "onMouseOut" event such as doc.Refresh - but alas I see it's expecting some Java code. Unfortunately I  know even less about Java than I do about - well almost anything really.

Does this look a feasible way to solve the problem? If so , can anyone offer me the code?

Thanks,

Stuart

If this is notes app then you cannot use onMouseOut.. that is only for web. Instead use Exiting and the code to refresh in exiting event would be

DIm ws as New NotesUIWorkspace
ws.CurrentDocument.Refresh

Hi StuartOrd,

Reply JavaScript, not Java, and it isn't what yu want to do.  The automatica refresh sugegsted my madheeswar will work easily, but it tends to make things run slowly.  Hemanthas works better,though you end up with more maintenance.

Best regards,

Hi all,
Thanks!
Partha, qwaletee, I'd already got that enabled, but past experience has told me not to be surprised when it doesn't work
Hemanth, it's a case of my tunnel vision, I hadn't looked down the list past onMouseOut - Exiting works fine

Stuart
