SP list item details not updated after edited


I have created a simple app that connects to a SharePoint list and has List, Details, Edit screens (standart one).

When I edit and save a list item, the details page is not updated until I restart an app ( list in SharePoint is updated)

Is there any way to force Details screen to update after Submit on a Edit screen?

Hi @RomanKorchak


The reason you cannot see it is you need to Refresh(<Datasource>).


PowerApps has loads of caching so if you update or Insert a record, it does not immediately update the version in PowerApps unless you do a Refresh.





I do have Refresh(<Datasource>) under OnVisible in Details screen - I thought that would be enough 

Hi @RomanKorchak


OnVisible only fires when the Page is displayed.


Unless you close the page and then re-open it by say going back to the main menu and then clicking on a menu item to display the page, the OnVisible event will not fire.





I'm assuming you have a separate screen for detail and edit. 


On your navigation button put Refresh(SPList) on the 'OnSelect' properties. 

A bit of an update:

I have a few (8 at the moment, may need to add more) identical SP lists and did not want to create a separate ListScreen/DetailsScreen/EditScreen screens for each list . So I created a menu screen with buttons for each list that navigates to Details screen passing particular SP list as a variable

 (   Navigate(ListScreen, ScreenTransition.None, {TheList:SPList1} )

And then on DetailsScreen and EditScreen using passed List value as DataSource

Its all seems to be working fine exept if I go back to ListScreen or DetailsScreen after updating on EditScreen data on ListScreen and DetailsScreen are not updated.

I have added Refresh(SPList) to Onselect on main screen and if I go back to main screen and click on a button - data is refreshed. 

So how can I refresh DetailsScreen and ListScreen after data eddited on EditScreen  without going back to main screen?
