Project Browser - refresh button still not available

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
Currently one has to close and reopen the Project Browser to get a refreshed list of the loaded stacks.  Ben Rubinstein suggested already in 2016 to add a refresh button to the Project Browser. Bug 17916 <https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17916>

I can´t believe that no one at Livecode sees the needs for such a refresh button. Don´t they use the Project Browser?

I know there is Navigator from Geoff Canyon which can be used as an replacement, but it can´t be that one has to use a 3rd party plugin to get a function the old deprecated RevApplicationBrowser already had. I know that i can open the old Browser from the plugin menu, but that makes no sense to me.

Yes, it can be, but it is a shame.

I think adding that to the PB code and interface could not be that
difficult. What about doing it yourself ?

Ha! The PB is a maintenance nightmare... you're looking at 12 mainstacks
plus a behavior stack or two, and some seemingly random stuff thrown in
for good measure... still haven't figured out what the "Clap.mp3"
audioclip is for.

OK - so what I *believe* all you'd need to do is add a new png image for
the refresh action, create a new handler for the action and add a
frameItem for the action in the preOpenStack handler of stack
"revProjectBrowserBehavior" (see addFrameItem in the
"revPaletteBehavior" stack), ensure that the frameItem is always enabled
in the updateActions handler of the behavior script, and have the
frameItem dispatch a "refreshProjectView" to stack "revIDEProjectBrowser".

Has possibilities. Any takers?

Sometimes Navigator is no maintenance picnic either ;-)

I was going to say that Navigator doesn't update like this because the
stacks are in a menu rather than the list, but then I remembered the stack
list view, so that shows what I know. There is an Update List Now command
in the Actions menu, but I just checked, and any update to the selection in
LiveCode causes the list to refresh automatically. So if you create a new
stack, it won't show up immediately, but as soon as you drag a control into
it (or anything else like that) the list will update then.

So, yay!
