Determines how often dBASE Plus refreshes the workstation screen with table information from the server.
SET REFRESH TO <expN>
A time interval expressed in seconds from 0 to 3,600 (1 hour), inclusive. The default is 0, meaning that dBASE Plus doesnít update the screen.
Use SET REFRESH to set a refresh interval when working with shared tables on a network. Then, when you use BROWSE or EDIT to edit shared tables, your screen refreshes at the interval you set, showing you changes made by other users on the network to the same tables.
If another user has a lock on the file or records you're currently viewing, the file or records won't be refreshed until that user releases the lock.
Use a Timer object to periodically call the Rowset objectís refreshControls(†) method.
