Gallery Not Refreshed After Patch

Hi There,


I have been trying to get a small gallery for 'Note's to refresh after the Notes table has been patched. When you first open the screen, the gallery is populated with the 'notesCollection' created by this formula : 


ClearCollect(notesCollection, SortByColumns(Gallery2.Selected.Notes, "createdon", Descending));


This results in a nicely formatted Gallery like this : 



When I add a new Note the 'Save' button formula  looks like this :


Patch(Notes, Defaults(Notes), {Title:txtAmendmentNoteSubject.Text}, {Description:txtAmendmentNoteBody.Text}, {'Regarding (_objectid_value)': SelectedPlacement}, {isdocument:false});ClearCollect(notesCollection, SortByColumns(SelectedPlacement.Notes, "createdon", Descending));UpdateContext({showAmendmentNoteDialog:false})


I've highlighted the ClearCollect command because that's what I've found in multiple places while researching the problem, but the gallery now looks like this : 


I can see that the gallery has been refreshed, the data is added to the Notes table and the data has been pulled into the collection (that's the highlighted one) but all the other label text is now missing. 


If I go back to the main screen and re-select the item, the Gallery looks great again.


There must be something obvious I'm missing, but can anyone help point this out?

In your highlighted clearcollect, what is SelectedPlacement?

@Serviced2000 If you don't need the collection for other purposes, it would be better to avoid it and set the Items property of the Gallery to, SortByColumns(Gallery2.Selected.Notes, "createdon", Descending)

Hi @KvB1 ,


SelectedPlacement is a record / item passed as a variable from "Gallery2" on the main page of this app.

Thanks @CNT ,


I'm pretty sure that's what I did to begin with and then I had to change it to a collection (but I can't remember why). I'll give this another go...

Hi @CNT ,


I made this change and it displays well, but when I Patch the notes table the gallery doesn't refresh on screen. I'll go do some digging but if you know of a way I can trigger this, that would be valuable.



Hi @Serviced2000 ,


After the notes Patch and before the ClearCollect would you try adding Refresh(Notes) and check if gallery data is updating ?
