Hi,

I´m testing a silverlight application.

I have to expand a tree, and used ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree();, but it didn't work.
So, I've added [objectName]..Refresh();, that didn't work as well...

The only way to put this working was adding, before these "refreshes", a System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500);.

So... my question is:

1. what's the main difference between ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree(); and [objectName]..Refresh(); ?
2. what kind of implications in these "refreshes", System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500); have?


Best regards,

Paulo

Hi Paulo,

what's the main difference between ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree(); and [objectName]..Refresh(); ?

In the context of a Silverlight element, the difference is huge. RefreshDomTree will only refresh the cached HTML portion of the DOM within our ActiveBrowser object. The Sidelight VisualTree and any elements referenced will not get refreshed.

[objectName].Refresh() will update the properties of that element object using whatever is currently in the local memory cache of the ActiveBrowser object.

To refresh the VisualTree of a Silverlight application requires code like this:
SilverlightApp slapp = ActiveBrowser.SilverlightApps()[0];
slapp.RefreshVisualTrees();
