Let me modify the content of a rich text field in a currently open document with LotusScript, and let the result be visible without the need to save and reopen the document.
The best method for this would be to use the existing refresh method in the NotesUIDocument class:
Call notesUIDocument.Refresh( [ IncludeRichTextItems ] )
This would allow us to create some great functions, without the need of crappy workarounds.

I had a need for this recently(this week)and I used one of those "crappy" workarounds. We'll, it works so "crappy" is a matter of opinion.

@ Curt - well it is nice that it works for you, but for me this is actually a typical example of a terrible workaround. (It overwrites the users clipboard-content, it makes the screen "flicker" twice, it can take ages if the RTF contains large attachments, it needs a damn lot of code for a simple task)

I would really like to programmatically add a table row before the doc is saved and have it show up in the document, then perform validation. Adding a table row could be lots easier, too, but at least have it appear in the field without having to close/reopen or perform tricks.
