Re: [cdt-dev] CDT project view: How to programatically update the directories shown below 'Includes'?

Sorry Martin, I got distracted with something else after not finding the solution quickly. I am not surpised that "project.getFolder("Includes").refreshLocal()" did not work as Includes is not a folder. If you do project.getFolder("Includes").exists() it will return false.

Here is the info I have, hopefully you can figure out the missing piece from there. I didn't manage to verify if this works for your case.

The Content Provider providing Includes to the Common Navigator is: org.eclipse.cdt.internal.ui.navigator.CNavigatorContentProvider (extending the org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent extension point). 
IncludeRefContainer provides the view model object for the "Includes" node.
You can refresh the data by calling refresh() on the viewer passing the project as the element to refresh.
The refresh is kicked off by LanguageSettingsProvidersSerializer.notifyLanguageSettingsChangeListeners(ILanguageSettingsChangeEvent) which is kicked off by the below methods.


You should be able to call this: LanguageSettingsSerializableProvider.serializeLanguageSettingsInBackground(ICConfigurationDescription) or the foreground version serializeLanguageSettings.

Please advise.
A simple approach to just call project.getFolder("Includes").refreshLocal()
did not produce any update.
