OnSelect on Datatable fires twice


On the OnSelect event on a column of a datatable which is a hyperlink, I have this formula. 

UpdateContext({CompTotal: CompTotal - 1)

Which should keep taking 1 from a variable which is a number.

However, when I press the hyperlink in the column, the number will go down by 2 all the time. But when I put the same formula in the OnSelect of a button the number will decrease by 1 as it should.

Is this a bug in the datatable or am I using the OnSelect of a column incorrectly?

Hi @ChrisRPS,

I tested this and can confirm the behavior.  It also adds 2 if the UpdateContext is +1.  It must be a bug.  You can report it here:
