Refreshing the page

Refreshing the page

To refresh a page:

  • With Live Data turned on, click the Refresh button (the circle-arrow icon) on the document toolbar if you want to refresh the page after making a change that affects dynamic content.

    You can also select the Auto Refresh option in the toolbar. With this option turned on, the page refreshes whenever you make a change affecting dynamic content. If you have a slow database connection, you might want to leave this option off when working in the Live Data window.

Troubleshooting Live Data view

Many problems with Live Data view can be traced back to missing or incorrect values in the Site Definition dialog box (Site > Edit Sites).

Check the Testing Server category of the Site Definition dialog box. The Remote Folder text box should specify a folder capable of processing dynamic pages (see Specifying where dynamic pages can be processed). Here’s an example of a suitable remote folder if you’re running IIS or PWS on your hard disk:

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\myapp\

Verify that the URL Prefix box specifies a URL that corresponds (or "maps") to the remote folder. For example, if PWS or IIS is running on your local computer, then the following remote folders have the following URL prefixes:

Remote folder

URL prefix

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\

http://localhost/

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\myapp\

http://localhost/myapp/

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\fs\planes

http://localhost/fs/planes
