Description

In many cases postgis tables are changed outside QGIS (via pgAdmin, psql console etc.).
One common example is when a default value added to a column (i.e. next sequence value).
For QGIS to catch with this changes, you have to re-add table to the project, copy styling from the current version and remove then remove it.
Could've been a lot more convenient to just re-read table definition from DB with a click of a button. A button in Layer properties window would be nice.
Something similar is used in `Update SQL Layer` for layers added from DB Manager queries.
