Delay navigate screen

HI,

 

Is it possible navigate to another screen in a few seconds delay?

 

By pressing the button I turn on flow and navigate to screen.
AvLicense.Run();
Navigate(Screen2, Fade)


On the screen I present the results of the flow in display form (the flow create a new item, so it takes a few seconds and the page that comes up does not update)
I could not find a solution to navigate to a page in delay.

Does anyone have an idea?

 

 

Many thanks in advance

Hi @Maorzd23

 

I would suggest to use

- Timer

 

Insert a Timer (make it invisible once done!)

- Set the Duration of the Timer as you wish (say 4000 ms = 4 sec)

- OnTimerEnd = Navigate(.....)

- Reset = true

- Start = (Set a context variable, example: "go")

 

Insert a Button (and name it "Next Page")

- OnSelect = UpdateContext({go: true})

 

OnVisible:

UpdateContext({go: false})

 

Hope this helps.

Hello Maorzd,

By pressing the button I turn on flow and set a variable to true.
AvLicense.Run();
UpdateContext({varStartTimer:true})

You add a timer and,
Timer1.Start=varStartTimer.
Timer1.OnTimerEnd=Navigate(Screen2, Fade)

You can set the duration of the timer for example to 3 seconds and navigate to the screen after 3 seconds.

Not the best solution but hope that helps.

Hi Maorzd23,

 

I had a similar problem in the past where the screen I was navigating would not update until I clicked the Navigate control the second time.  I thought a Timer would take care of it but it did not.

 

I worked with the PowerApps Product Team and it was determined that there is a bug related to the syntax (I spoke with them last week and they are working on a fix): 

 

Gallery.Selected and Gallery.AllItems

 

I had to go back and switch everything to ThisItem.Column and similar workarounds.  Before I did the workarounds I was having problems with OnSelect -- Navigate and other controls where I would have to click the twice before they would work.

 

Let me know if this help.  Thanks, Marc...

First thing that came to my mind when I saw your question was the timer option and glad that it worked out.

 

However, on a second thought , I wouldn't want the user to wait on the same screen for a few seconds and then go to the next screen. I would rather navigate the user to the next screen and show a loading icon (gif image) which will be visible only till the time the gallery (assuming you are showing something in a gallery on the next screen) populates. (for which you can use the IsEmpty function)

 

Hope this makes sense.

 

Both the solutions work , however, I would recommend this as a better UX.

 

Let me know if you would like to know more about implementing this.

Hi @ThatAPIGuy

 

It sounds interesting but right now the solution is enough for me,
Thanks anyway.

 

For those struggling for hours trying to make this work, as simple as it is...  The timer will NOT START in the editor.  You have to "play" your app for the time to actually function.  One of those #*%# little details that suck your time away...

Hi @PK_Hong,

 

Looks like you may be able to assist, I am wanting to add a delay on a button, looks like you resolved this for someone with success.

 

I have tried completing the steps provided, but I am not sure what I should be seeing on my screen. To be honest I am fairly new to PowerApps, so sorry if this is a silly question. 

 

Hope you can help.
