Button to Synchronous Flow - Immediate Result

Some time ago I tried to create a app similar to a shopping cart remove function where the action immediately recalculate the total but couldn't figure out how. The only way I can think of creating a synchronous  power automate is by using the HTTP control but don't think there was a way to add an API value to a Canvas App button. Is there an easy way to call a Flow and have a call back to update the canvas app?

Hi @JMan2021 :

Do you want to call a Flow in a CanvasApp and get the return value of this Flow?

If so, several conditions need to be met:

1\The trigger of this Flow must be PowerApps.

2\There must be a specific Action to return data to PowerApps, usually I will use "Respond to a PowerApp or flow"

3\Insert this flow into a Canvas App

4\Call this flow and save its return value to a variable
