Bug: Gallery doesnt refresh anymore?

I have a gallery and clicking an item takes you to another screen. I use Patch() for new entries, and EditForm for editing. Once edited /added, I navigate back to the other screen with the gallery.


Only recently have I had complaints that the gallery does not auto refresh anymore and people need to pick another date (to update the gallery and then go back to the correct date), or refresh. This was not the case before.

I then tried to remedy it by setting the OnVisible property to Refresh(<Source>) and even now I am getting complaints it does not refresh, but it seems to when I use Edit mode, but not the Live version.


Is this something others are experiencing?


Edit: From testing, I think it is the gallery itself not updating, not the source.

Hi @xzDan,


The DataSouce of the Gallery should be the collection.


Then do the steps to refresh.

If you want to refresh a gallery you just need a collection. 

First Button (OnSelect) -> Refresh('Your DataSource')

Second create a collection after the refresh

Thank you for the suggestion. This helped a problem I had.

I had a similar problem where my datasource and Patch formulas were correctly updating records but I had some DisplayMode logic rely on the Selected Item in a gallery.

That gallery control itself wasn't truly "refreshing", because I knew the datasource was itself was correctly updating the records, and it wasn't until I clicked away to another record in that gallery and then clicked back that it "refreshed" the gallerys Items view - again, the data was already updated before, but the gallery itself was not "refreshing".

My solution was to take the Items property of my Gallery that was originally filtering the datasource directly and add it to a ClearCollect right after my patch formula and a refresh on the datasource. A simple example something like:

Button OnSelect:
Patch(Datasource, {Column1: Value1});
ClearCollect(colData, Filter(Datasource, [etc. etc..])

Gallery1 Items: colData
