Now that’s Refreshing

So you’re working in Live Data view, enjoying the fact that Dreamweaver lets you design your page with actual data shown, and you change the color of one of the dynamic text fields—but none of the other data in the repeat region changes. What’s up with that? You’ve got Auto-Refresh enabled: Why doesn’t it automatically refresh? The Auto-Refresh option only updates the page when a change is made server side—and text color changes (whether via HTML or CSS) are definitely client side. To propagate a client-side change, select the Refresh icon on the Live Data toolbar. To see the Auto-Refresh option in action, change the format of a selected dynamic text element from the Format column of the Bindings panel. You could, for example, specify the AlphaCase to be Upper and all the dynamic text entries would display in uppercase after Dreamweaver detects the format change and automatically refreshes the page.
