Trigger refresh of UI

I have a dojo custom property where the content of another property on the page is edited through a web api call. The web api controller saves a new version of the page.

How can I tell epi to refresh the page?  Much like autosave is triggered when changing a property on the page through the input controls.

    Hi Mari

    I'd say you need to publish a Dojo topic to inform the UI to refresh, I'd guess at /epi/cms/contentdata/updated. More info on the topic system in Dojo from the awesome Greg Wiecheć here

    Yes, David, you are right! The following did the trick:

    topic.publish("/epi/shell/context/request", {
                           uri: "epi.cms.contentdata:///" + newContentLink
                       }, {
                               sender: this,
                               viewName: this.view,
                               forceContextChange: true,
                               forceReload: true
