I think you didn't got me...
Above each code block there is a menu with 'expand', 'shrink', 'hide' and more...
As I have a long code block I would like to display that code block like after clicking 'shrink' from the beginning...

It's completely unrelated. It may be upvoted without updating it and it may not be upvoted albeit updating it. Updating an article leads to the article being listed under "Latest Articles" on the homepage again though, so it will probably get some more views, increasing the chances of any vote.

You're new here so I'd like to take an opportunity to tell you a little bit about the CodeProject (as well as answer your question).
First of all, welcome! It is always great to have new authors join us. There are a lot of things we do at CodeProject, but our primary goal is to foster learning and teaching for developers. I can tell from your first article you're going to be a great asset.
Yes we have reputation and article ratings, and yes those are valuable and have their uses, but I can tell you many of the CodeProject greats weren't dedicated to either of those things -- they were dedicated to the community and the bettering of themselves and others. That they happened to achieve legendary article ratings and reputation along the way was almost a side effect. I would encourage all authors and members to keep this in mind.
If you update your article you will give it a boost in visibility and that, in turn, may garner you an upvote if a member likes your article. Please note, however, article updates are meant to be large changes to your article that you are informing readers about. Ideally those changes are documented in the History section of the article, so that the reader can go to the article and see something new.
In regard to upvotes, the reality is we are an online community and member behaviour is difficult to govern and predict. One day, a long time, high reputation CodeProject author might vote one of your articles with a 3, a 2, or even a 1. While this might be temporarily discouraging, we would ask you don't report such activity unless you catch a string of them (like a consistent, malicious downvoter). Members are entitled to their votes and opinions. They may even discuss their thoughts with on your article forums. We hope those discussions are passionate and civil.
I sense you are very curious about CodeProject. Please feel free to email me any time with your questions: email@example.com. This may actually be better as I can address a series of questions all in a single email (and potentially, faster too).
Do you mean to have a bullet of cryptonite in the safe?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Hi. Today 06-18-2015 my article was upvoted 2 times, but it happened to be actually downvoted. When I've noticed that my article was recently downvoted I first looked into this and seen that it was upvoted instead. I gained the first time 40 reputation points and 10 for the second voting, but the score the article was inspite lowered. So, I'm interested, what's happened with my article score, is that something wrong with the system or moderators, under some reason, purpously removed the up votes??
Now, I'm making changes to my article and about to publish the new revised version. Possibly, is that the reason for the article score is reduced ??
