"refresh" the Finder?

Thanks, Frank.  I used AppleScript to delete my folder and that seems to
work.

The problem now is that it just places the folder in the Trash, and it
didn't do that before.  Does anyone know if there's a way to remove a
specific folder from the trash using AppleScript?  I tried using the empty
command followed by the reference to the folder in the trash, but it didn't
work.  If not, I'll just empty the trash, but I thought that's probably not
a very nice thing to do.  Shouldn't be a big deal in this case, however.

Sorry this is kind of OT.

Thanks again,

Clicking on the window (or in the case of the desktop, on the desktop) 
refreshes the display.

Meanwhile, you could try using AppleScript to tell the finder to delete 
the file or folder, rather than deleting it from Rev... maybe the 
Finder will automatically refresh itself if you do it that way?  Not 
sure, just a thought.
