Refresh button in Mendix 5

In earlier mendix versions there was a so called 'mendixToolbar' with a home, back,forward,refresh and signout button. The signout button is available as a widget in Mendix 5, but it seems that the refresh button is disappeared in Mendix 5. Is it possible to get this button back somehow?

Mendix does not currently ship with a default refresh button. The silver lining is that, in most cases, you don't need one! Mendix recently implemented static URLs, which means you can simply use the browser's in-built refresh behavior (aka f5).

Where Mendix used to redirect to the home page on f5, it will now attempt to reload the current page, assuming it has a configured URL. So as long as the URL property of your page is set, you should be fine. 

Of course, if you absolutely require a refresh button, you could always build a show-page action button that opens the current page. Not exactly scalable, but it gets the job done. 


Refresh button is back (at least available in mendix 6.10 as widget button)
