Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : REFRESHABLE attribute


Indicates whether the rows that appear in a browse are refreshed when an application opens or repositions a query.
Note: When an application opens a query or repositions it multiple times, and refreshes the viewport each time, the display might flash, which is distracting. You can suppress the refreshing, and so reduce the flashing, by setting REFRESHABLE to FALSE.
Data type: LOGICAL
Access: Readable/Writeable
Applies to: BROWSE widget
If REFRESHABLE is FALSE, when an application opens or repositions a query, the viewport is not refreshed. REFRESHABLE's default value is TRUE.
