#refresh(http_opts = {}, &block) ⇒ Form

Refreshes the form's inputs and re-applies user updates.

The way it works is by requesting the Base#url, parsing the response and updating the form with the fresh form's inputs.

Parameters:

  • http_opts (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    HTTP options to pass to the request.

  • block (Block)

    If a block is given the request will be async and the block will be called with the updated form.

Returns:
