PowerApps Timer doesn't start automatically anymore after resetting the Timer

Hi Community,

 

I have a timer that has a count down of 30 seconds.

The function for Timer's AutoStart is :

AutoStart = varStartTimer

 

When Screen1 is on visible, the function goes:

OnVisible = UpdateContext({ varStartTimer : true});

 

There is an "Edit" checkbox, if the Edit checkbox is checked, the form in that Screen1 becomes editable.

When the "Edit" checkbox is onCheck, the function for OnCheck is follow:

 

OnCheck =
Set(varEditMode, true);
UpdateContext({varStartTimer: false});
Reset(TimerName);

OnUnCheck =
Set(varEditMode, false);
UpdateContext({varStartTimer: true});
Reset(TimerName);

 

However, after resetting the timer, the timer doesn't start automatically anymore even the varStartTimer variable is true.

 

I have tried using "Set(varStartTimer, true)" instead of using UpdateContext but it didn't work either. Please help!

Hi @lliu_western ,

I have found a global variable works best and do a "double reset". Here is a blog I did using a timer that does this.

So at screen OnVisible

Set(vTimer,false);
Set(VTimer(true)
