Other field types get refreshed when you call the uidoc.Refresh method. However, with RichText fields, you have to close the document and reopen it (the user will see a flicker as you do this). Here is an example of how to do this:
Dim s As New NotesSession 'reference to the current session Dim db As NotesDatabase 'reference to the current database Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace 'reference to the current orkspace Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument 'reference to the current UI document Dim doc As NotesDocument 'the back-end document open in the UI 'set db equal to the currently open database found in the current session Set db = s.currentdatabase 'set the uidoc equal to the currently open uidoc Set uidoc = ws.currentdocument 'set doc equal to the document open in the uidoc Set doc = uidoc.document
' *** make your changes to the doc object here ***
'Save the document Call doc.Save(False,False) ' grab the document's UNID Dim DocUNID As String DocUNID = doc.UniversalID 'Set the saveoptions so that the user is not prompted when the document closes. doc.SaveOptions = "0"
'Close the document in the UI Call uidoc.Close
' get the document back Set doc = db.GetDocumentByUNID(DocUNID) 'Re-open the document in the UI Set uidoc = ws.EditDocument(True, doc)
