Refreshing the Buffer

Refreshing the Buffer

Postby mikestead on Sat Jul 30, 2011 7:29 am

On post-save I'm checking to see if the file which was saved is empty and if it is calling an external tool to auto-fill this file with some default content.

My issue is that the active buffer is not refreshing with this new content. I do see a "Reloading <file path>" printed to the console, but the buffer does not visually refresh.

If I set focus to another view and then put focus back on the original view the new content is displayed.

I've seen a similar question raised here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2001 but the "revert" command didn't seem to do anything.

Any ideas how to get around this? Perhaps it may be good to have a "reload" or "refresh" option in the view API?
