|RE: [cdt-dev] MBS (IManagedOptionValueHandler) questions|
Please see my answers embedded below.
Note: I think you're going to hate this as I'm using this extension in a way
that wasn't planned...

properties GUI to match. This is working.
The first question is that I would like to add this field to the main compiler

(option.setValue("")), but this is not reflected in the GUI until I switch from
the page and switch back again. Is there a way to get the entry field to be
[Mikhail] The MBS functionality does not have the change notification mechanism currently. That is why MBS GUI has to refresh contents of each page to ensure that proper “live” values are displayed. Currently the refresh is performed in the following situations:
1. the page/tab becomes visible
2. the value of some UI property of the page gets changed
If you need some more flexible mechanism of UI contents update we might consider changing/enhancing the current MBS UI refresh mechanism.
