DataEase 8.5 - RefreshScreen() fixed to refresh entire form including Subforms (8.5.0.2456)

We are not completely sure when RefreshScreen() was introduced but most likely it has been around since the Dawn of DataDase for Windows (Express 1.0) and it has never worked.

RefreshScreen is a simple enough idea and when you think about the workarounds that have been "invented" by ingenious developers over the years one realise that this fix has been sorely missed and long awaited.

Now it is here and you can now - finally - refresh the data in your form without having to resort to witch craft.

Returning from a related form or from a pick list or whatever reason you have for refreshing the content of your form, now it is here.

Combine the Timer() with RefreshScreen() and you might be in position to deliver the next Arrivals/Departure screens for the Airports :-)
