How to make patches works synchronously

Hello everyone my name is Taniguchi, and i having trouble because i need to insert a button to do two patches, one for create and other for update i need in the end on flow the new row is created and updated. but when i press the button is only creating because they try to create and update at the same time and the update dont work because the row dont exist yet. so i need a way to do a two patches and the second one wait ultil the first is ready to start.

how can i make a button to execute two patches and the second patch wait until the first patch is done do iniciate ?

I think execution of code in UI is sequential. Maybe you can try the following:

Add a button 1 that does the patch with Create (in OnSelect code). Add a button 2 that does the patch with Update (in OnSelect code). Set the button2.Visible to 'false'. In the button 1 code, after the Patch call, trigger the (invisible) button2 with "Select(button2)".


If my assumption is correct, first the OnSelect code of button1 will be run, and only after it completes it will run the OnSelect code of button2. But I didn't try it myself, so attempt it and see if it works. Good luck!

Hi @Tanisantos 


Patch(.....);Patch(......)  - will execute your patches in sequential format


However if you want to ensure that Patch was siuccessful before executing next Patch


then Set(response,Patch(.....))   - the variable response object will give you details if any error

check the response and accordingly execute the next Patch
