16.3.1 Updating the display

In some circumstances your object might get modified while you are inspecting it, so you should be aware that the inspector display might need to be refreshed. To see this:

  1. In the Listener tool call (capi:contain *) , where the value of * should be the list-panel instance that you are inspecting.
  2. In the Inspector choose the command Works > Refresh . The Inspector should now appear as in The filtered inspector display, refreshed below.

Figure 16.3 The filtered inspector display, refreshed

Notice that the representation slot no longer has value nil . The list-panel instance has been modified by calling capi:contain , and the Inspector has been updated to show the new slot value.
