Refreshing the asset browser

The Asset Browser view of the Project Explorer window analyzes source files and extracts information about source code components (classes, methods, functions, etc...) as well as any dependency files. This capability, known as file tagging, allows you to navigate through your source files more easily and provides direct access to the source code components through the Text Editor.

When the automatic file tagging option is selected, OneTest Embedded refreshes the file information whenever a change is detected. However, you can use the Refresh Information command to update a single file or the entire project.

You can change the way files are tagged by OneTest Embedded by changing the Source File Information Configuration Settings for the current project.

Note   When many files are involved in the tagging process, the Refresh Information command may take several minutes.

To manually refresh a single file in the Asset Browser:

  1. In the Project Explorer, select the Asset Browser tab.

  2. Right-click the file or object that you want to refresh.

  3. From the pop-up menu, select Refresh Information.

To refresh all project files:

  1. From the Project menu, select Refresh File Information.

To activate or de-activate the automatic refresh:

With the automatic file tagging option, files are automatically refreshed whenever a file is loaded into the workspace or selected in the Project Explorer.

  1. From the Edit menu, select Preferences.

  2. Select the Project preferences node.

  3. Select or clear the Activate file tagging option, and then click OK.

To edit the Source File Information settings for the project:

  1. In the Project Explorer, click the Settings button.

  2. Select the project node in the Project Explorer pane.

  3. In the Configuration Settings list, expand General.

  4. Select Source File Information.

  5. When you have finished, click OK to validate the changes.
