AutoDisableOnSelect for CheckBox

My app is just a bit sluggish.  Users, of course, are a bit impatient.  If the checkbox does not check immediately, it gets picked a second time, then it looks like nothing happens.  Buttons have a great feature called "AutoDisableOnSelect" that prohibits the dreaded double-click.  I wish for the same feature for checkboxes.  

 

Before you ask me to request this feature, I would like to know if anyone has a work-around.  Setting a true/false variable to toggle using "OnCheck" or "OnSelect" does not seem to work.  It waits before the box checks.  The delay is prior to the box checking.  That is the period of time I need it disabled.

 

Any ideas?

Re: AutoDisableOnSelect for CheckBox

Thanks for asking, @Anonymous . WIth reference to this issue, I havent revisited it in a while.  However, in general, things seem to be working rather well.  I have made some extreme improvements that have increased perfromance greatly, mainly using collections to get full items on a single on prem gateway call, and a method to pull in updates to data in leiu of a full data pull to keep data fresh in my apps.  Users are experiencing much less delay, and errors in-use have decreased not quite to zero, but close.

Re: AutoDisableOnSelect for CheckBox

I haven't tried it, but could you perhaps put a transparent button over the top of the checkbox and use its OnSelect to affect the checkbox?

 

Button.OnSelect = UpdateContext({CheckboxChecked: !CheckboxChecked})

CheckBox.Default = CheckboxChecked

 

You couldn't use any of the Hover or Press indicators for the checkbox but I think it would prevent doubleclicking.

Re: AutoDisableOnSelect for CheckBox

Hi @martinav ,

 

Try to set below formulas for check box control:

CheckBox1.OnCheck=Set(V,DisplayMode.View)
CheckBox1.DisplayMode=V

Re: AutoDisableOnSelect for CheckBox

I tried something similar to that.  There is still a lag between the time  you pick it, and the set() command responds where the checkbox will still continue to select/deselect.
