You can use ViewVariables to control which variables represent view objects that should be refreshed when a refreshView operation is executed from the workItemEdit.jsp page. In general, a refreshView operation reloads the view data from all of its sources such as resource adapters.
<!-- The userView variable should be refreshed during a refreshView --> <ViewVariables> <List> <String>userView</String> </List> </ViewVariables>
Use ViewVariables only when absolutely necessary for correct form and user interaction. This is option is seldom used.
