Is there any notification when a file is reloaded?

  • Hi,

    I’d like to detect in my plugin that a file which was externally modified is reloaded within Notepad++. I noticed that the NPPN_BUFFERACTIVATED notification is sent when a dialog appears asking the user whether he wants to reload the modified file. However it is not sent (and neither is any other notification) when the user clicks Yes in the dialog. Is there a different way to detect whether a file was reloaded?

  • Unfortunately it doesn’t appear there is any way of catching this kind of event. And you are correct that it seems only NPPN_BUFFERACTIVATED is sent. I can see where this type of message would be useful to be notified when it is reloaded…so it might be a good idea to open a new issue on Github.
