Workspace Updates when script is complete?

10 views (last 30 days)
Does the Workspace only update when the script is completed running? I have this very simply program to test. If I manually clear the workspace at the command line and then run this script, the workspace doesn't list the variables x and y until the entire script is complete.
x = 3
pause(2)
y = 4
pause(2)
Similarly, if I manually (via command line) populate some variables in the workspace and then run the following, again the workspace isn't cleared until script is complete.
clear
pause(2)
The pauses are used to visually confirm when the workspace is updated, which in both cases is when the command prompt returns. I am using the most recent trial version.

Correct.
Generally speaking, there would be too much overhead to continually update the workspace browser when you are not stopped.
