To refresh a file resource

About this task

To save changes to a file resource you have edited, you must refresh it. A file resource that has been edited but not yet refreshed is identified in two places:

  • In the files work pane, the filename is preceded by a refresh icon (diamond)
  • In the File Design properties, make sure the "Prohibit design refresh or replace to modify" check box is unselected.


  1. In the files work pane, highlight the file resource that you have edited.
  2. Click File-Refresh. The file resource is refreshed. The refresh icon disappears from the files work pane.
