Refreshing form data

Good day,
I have a a gallery where a user selects an item. The OnSelect property of the button then Navigates to a form screen where some of the data in the form is prepopulated form the previous screen.

The user completes one entry and then the data is patched to sharepoint: Patch(CSNonMovingParts, LookUp(CSNonMovingParts, Title=DataCardValue28.Text), {SVO: DataCardValue1.Text, 'Requested by': User().Email, 'Requested on': Now(), Status: "Requested"})

However, I am adding the user name and the date the form was submitted to sharepoint. What I'd like to see is that the form is refreshed and that the two fields REQUESTED BY and REQUESTED ON now contain data and that the field STATUS now say REQUESTED and not AVAILABLE .




U have tried everything I could find that was suggested including setting the OnSuccess property of the edit form to REFRESH(SHAREPOINTLIST NAME) but it doesn't work.


Any ideas?


Accepted Solutions

@MJGreyling ,

That is because you are setting the variable as a record, not a single value. This is not difficult (in fact very basic) to fix - try this OnSuccess


 and the form Item

   ID = selectId.ID

What is in the Items property of your form? 


Try putting a lookup to the datasource in the items property of your form so it is always looking up the latest record.


For example:


LookUp(CSNonMovingParts, ID=varSelectedID)


Where varSelectedID is the ID of the currently selected record. You can set this in the Gallery OnSelect.



The Item property of the form has: selectedId in. This I had to do to get the form to populate the data coming from the gallery.

I thought if I took your suggestion and put it in the OnSuccess Property it would work BUT i get Incompatible types: (It does the same if I do it in the ITEM property)

You could try setting a variable in the gallery on select e.g.




Then in the Form's OnSuccess




In the OnSelect property of the Gallery the variable selectId was already set:

Navigate(Screen1, ScreenTransition.Fade); Set(selectedId, ThisItem)


So in the OnSucces property of the Form I have:


still doesn't refresh the form data.

In OnSuccess try looking up the submitted record in the datasource...


Set(selectedId,LookUp(YourSPL,ID = EditForm3.LastSubmit.ID))


Lol. I am realy thinking this is impossible to do.
No, didn't work. The record updates in SP but not on the form.

Set(selectedId,LookUp(CSNonMovingParts,ID = EditForm3.LastSubmit.ID))


Hi @MJGreyling ,

@Digital is on the right track, but the critical item which you have not included is the Item of the Form.

If you have the OnSuccess as 


and the Item of the Form

   ID = selectedId

it will display the record in its current state after the form submission.


Set(selectedId, Self.LastSubmit.ID)

So for the above I get an incompatible type error from the formula

And the same for this:

LookUp(CSNonMovingParts,ID = selectedId)

@MJGreyling ,

That is probably because you have selectedId defined elsewhere is a Record - forget about that one and use this



and the Item of the Form

   ID = gblID

It has to work - I use it on many of my forms to show new records immediately after creation in edit or view mode on the same form.
