Root Cause

PRPC refreshes the Harness instead of section if section contains either password or obfuscated fields.


This is en expected behaviour (Reloading the harness instead of Refresh section )when section has password or obfuscated controls.

Reason for this behaviour
1.No browser is designed to hold the password values on the refresh happens.
2.In order to retain the password values even after the refresh happens, the whole harness is refreshed to retain the password     values.

If refresh section happens, values of password or obfuscated fields will be cleared.

Follow below approach in order to do refresh the section.
1. Create section and make it as "Non-AutoGenerated section" by un-checking "Auto-generated HTML?" option in HTML Tab of section.

2. Write below code
3. Save the section.
