Hmmm...so why would that make a difference on the pui end?  It makes more sense 
that the requirement of an active read (that is bound to a subsystem owned

care who owns the value, does it?  Sorry I haven't looked at the code and don't 
have time to now.

Actually I'm now wondering why we don't just do a once per frame refresh of the 
browser so that the display always updates per frame (only while that dialog is 
displayed).  It wouldn't cost all that much and would certainly increase the 
utility of the browser.

Curtis is right, the property browser uses a callback function provided by the property code which is only called for properties that don't use the Tie() function (It has been discussed in the past to add the same functionality for all properties but it either requires C++ operator mangling or a function that checks for a change every frame).
