update (RichTextItem - Java)

Processes all pending operations on a rich text item.

Note: This method is new with Release 6.5.

Defined in



public void update()
    throws NotesException


Operations on a rich text item are queued for efficiency. The order and time of completion are not predictable. Use this method to ensure that processing is complete at a certain point.

In an open document in edit mode (the NotesDocument via NotesUIDocument.Document), changes made to rich text will not appear on screen immediately as they would with fields of other types. There is no method to cause this update to occur. You must close and reopen the document to see changes.
