Cannot refresh file after external changes to files while eclipse was not running (1)
Currently such changes can not be refreshed and can block the UI from showing the actual contents in the file.
- Open a WebDSL project.
- Open some editor windows for .app files.
- Close eclipse (completely) with the windows open.
- Make some changes to one of the files opened.
- Open eclipse: the windows are reloaded and present a message that they need refreshing.
Normally one could reopen the file, or just press F5 to refresh the view, but this action is disabled. There are two current workarounds: with eclipse running save new changes to the file with an external editor (touch?) or do a complete and successful compilation.Submitted by Thomas Schaap on 10 March 2010 at 19:13
AFAIK this is an Eclipse bug (but it might be an IMP bug). Pressing F5 to refresh hardly ever works in my experience. Right clicking on the file and selecting “refresh” does work though.
(Moved from WebDSL/57.)
Given that Spoofax is the editor you use for WebDSL, then yes, I guess this is moved correctly.
More importantly: I confirm that refreshing via right clicking the file in the file list does work. This suggests that it is indeed not the editor blocking the refresh, but the UI (Eclipse).
Reopen if this is still an issue
