Also, in case you're interested, you can see this message from Julien sent to the development list in 2019. I remembered it seeing that you prefixed a string with u"", and I have found it. In short, this is not needed though it's not harmful, but for a more readable code you may want to remove it:

For some reason sending keys it works better. Thanks to Karl-Otto who
gave me a good piece of advice too.

You may try with obj.setfocus method too, to move the focus physically.

Hi!
Just be aware that this won't work on systems that uses other
languages than English. "New" in Swedish is "Ny" so you won't focus
that file or folder if you let the system create it, i e sending Ctrl
+ Shift + N to create a new folder. If you set the name yourself it
might work if you don't make the file name translatable because then
you have to loop through the file name to type each letter.

This wasn't meant to be a downer, just a heads up. :)


Good luck!

You may show your source code for a better reply. I'd try with the
redraw() method obj.redraw() or sending the f5 key to the system:
from keyboardHandler import KeyboardInputGesture
KeyboardInputGesture.fromName("f5").send()

Hi everyone,

My name is Ramón, from Spain. I am glad to be here.

I would like to ask you something about a script I am writing.

I am in Windows Explorer. There are 5 items in the list view
(obj.parent).

I press the script gesture and a new item is created in that folder.

Now I would like to set the focus to the new item, but when I check
the children of the list view (obj.parent.childCount), the same 5
items appear.

Is there a way I can force to NVDA to refresh the view list from
the script?

I tried changing the focus from a list item to the list view after
the new file was created but did not work,

I appreciate your answer.

Regards.
