Manually Refreshing a Livewire Component

Livewire provides a clean API for automatically polling and refreshing a component, but what if you want to manually refresh a component?

Livewire's polling API is great for periodically refreshing your component or invoking an action, but one of the more quietly documented features is the ability to manually refresh a component using a "magic" action.

Here's how:

    <button wire:click="$refresh">Reload Component</button>

And that is it! The "magic" $refresh action can be used, anywhere an action can, in your component. Livewire will pick up the action name and simply re-render the component.
