Refresh not working as expected.

I have a button, it was there by default.

It's supposed to refresh the data on the screen.

It's supposed to refresh the data on the screen:

Refresh('[dbo].[MAIN]');Refresh('[dbo].[KAPMT_MAIN_VIEW_2]')

Data is in a "Data Table".

Data Table "items" is set to a "collection" called products.

Products collection is made like this in the OnVisible for the screen:

ClearCollect(Products, Filter('[dbo].[KAPMT_MAIN_VIEW_2]',MARKET_ID = MarketId.Text,MANUFACTURINGCENTRE_ID=ManufacturingCentreId.Text,SITE_ID=SiteId.Text,APPLICATION_ID=ApplicationId.Text,PROCESSSTEP_ID=ProcessStepId.Text));Refresh('[dbo].[KAPMT_MAIN_VIEW_2]')

 

Code is also used on my edit form after "Submit":

If(SaveControl_Edit_1.Text="Don't Save","",Refresh('[dbo].[MAIN]');Refresh('[dbo].[KAPMT_MAIN_VIEW_2]');SubmitForm(EditForm2_1))

 

Result: The DataTable is not "Refreshed" straightaway; changes that users make are not reflected on screen until the NEXT time you go in and try and edit a record.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Refresh not working as expected.

@ShowMeTheAnsweryou are using a collection (Products) as your datasource.  It will NOT update or refresh until you do the ClearCollect again (OnVisible).  

If you want the refresh to be instant, you will need to use the dataSources you are refreshing directly, not through a collection.  Otherwise, you will need to do the ClearCollect again after you refresh.

 

If you set your DataTable Items to:

   Filter('[dbo].[KAPMT_MAIN_VIEW_2]',MARKET_ID = MarketId.Text,MANUFACTURINGCENTRE_ID=ManufacturingCentreId.Text,SITE_ID=SiteId.Text,APPLICATION_ID=ApplicationId.Text,PROCESSSTEP_ID=ProcessStepId.Text))

You will see instant updates when a record is edited. 

 

If you cannot set your datasource directly and need a collection for other purposes, then you need to ClearCollect that collection each time you want to refresh. 

 

Hope that helps.
