I create a auto setup matcap texture addon and i'd like to know if it should be possible to "require" blender to update N panel. Got a template_preview and it should be great that it refresh automaticaly. If it really not possible, is it possible to get the texture list box or did i have to create my own texture list ?


Use Region.tag_redraw on the corresponding region. The region type of the T-Panel is 'TOOLS' and the type of the N-Panel is 'UI'.


for region in context.area.regions:
    if region.type == "UI":
