Purpose

Reloads a Notch resource. Can be used in conjunction with GetFileModifiedDate() to automatically reload a resource when it changes on disk. See the second example below.

Syntax

bool ReloadResource();

Example

function Update()
{ 
    myResource = Document.FindResourceByName("myFile.csv");
    if(myResource != null)
    {
        objRes.ReloadResource();
    }
}

This example automatically reloads a resource that has changed on disk:

LastModifiedTime = 0;
function Update()
{
    newModifiedTime = GetFileModifiedDate("c:\\myFolder\\myFile.csv");
    if(newModifiedTime != null)
    {
        if(newModifiedTime > LastModifiedTime)
        {
            myResource = Document.FindResourceByName("myFile.csv");
            if(myResource != null)
            {
                myResource.ReloadResource();
                LastModifiedTime = newModifiedTime;
            }
        }
    }
}
