Profile View Band Labels - Refresh

I'm attempting to create a profile view and then modify the label by overrriding the text components. Unfortunately the profile view bands don't populate the labels until after my command is complete making it not possible to modify them in one command. Is there a way to update the band to have it show the labels?


Or do I really have to make my user run two commands to make this happen?

I should mention that regen and Application.UpdateScreen do not work.

Not really, I ended up using two commands to accomplish the task. Additionally the bands don't recognize the lines in it's extents so you end up being a little short using this method if it extends beyond the text in the band label. Another issue is the title section of a band isn't included in the extents, so you really don't know where it is. Since the bands change size with the scale, it becomes difficult to determine what size it is. This is especially true if you try to run a command in paper space through a viewport. The band takes up some seemingly unkown scale factor and everything stops working. Other then that the customer seems happy, just gets confused on what the heck they should put in the dialog box I created for the title portion of the band when they change plot scales.
