refreshPlugins

Refreshes the list of plug-ins registered for the browser.

Method of

Install object

Syntax

int refreshPlugins( [ aReloadPages ] );

Parameters

The refreshPlugins method has the following parameter:

aReloadPages
aReloadPages is an optional boolean value indicating whether you want to reload the open web pages after you have refreshed the plug-in list.

Returns

Nothing.

Description

refreshPlugins lets you register new plug-ins without having to restart the browser. When you use this method in an installation script, as the example below demonstrates, you can install new plug-ins and use them to display the requested media in a web page without interrupting the experience of the user.

Note that refreshPlugins must be called after the performInstall method that initiates the actual installation.

Example

// Install DLL into Plugins
 // Install XPT into Components
  var xpiSrc  = "NPMCult3DP.dll";
  var xpiSrc2 = "nsIC3DPScriptablePeer.xpt";
  initInstall(
   "Cult3D Plugin File",
   "@cycore.com/Cult3D;version=1.0.0",
   "1.0.0");
  setPackageFolder(getFolder("Plugins"));
  addFile(xpiSrc);
  addFile("",xpiSrc2,getFolder("Components"),"");
  var err = getLastError();
  if (err == SUCCESS)
  {
     err = performInstall();
     if (err == SUCCESS)
        refreshPlugins();
  }
  else
     cancelInstall(err);
