UpdateContext does not work on Dynamics New Form for Gallery onSelect

Hi

 

- Embedded Canvas App on Dynamics Quote entity

- Used to add Quote Lines to Quotes

- Gallery of Price List Items displaying available Products with the price for the Product

- On Select of a Price List Item I would like to populate the selected product & price into the Quote Line Form

- The Form is of Type "New"

- On Select of a Gallery item, it UpdatesContext and sets the variables that are used in the Form

 

Now the issue is: sometimes the OnSelect works and fires, sometimes it doesnt.

It works in only about 20% of the cases.

 

OnSelect in Gallery:

 

UpdateContext({pricePerUnit: PriceListItems.Selected.Amount; product: PriceListItems.Selected.Product; unit: PriceListItems.Selected.Unit})
Product_DataCard.DataCardValue.Default = product
Unit_DataCard.DataCardValue.Default = unit
Price_DataCard.DataCardValue.Default = pricePerUnit

Any ideas why the UpdateContext doesnt update my Form?

Thanks!

Re: UpdateContext does not work on Dynamics New Form for Gallery onSelect

I figured out the issue.

It happens when I click on my labels.

All labels have Select(Parent) but it seems this is not called.

Issue was the DisplayMode which was set to "View".

Hi @Serf 

As a test could you use Set() instead of UpdateContext() and see if that works?

 

Set(pricePerUnit; PriceListItems.Selected.Amount);;
Set(product; PriceListItems.Selected.Product);; 
Set(unit; PriceListItems.Selected.Unit)

Re: UpdateContext does not work on Dynamics New Form for Gallery onSelect

Exact same issue. Feels it works a litte more often, but from 50 click, it works maybe 25 times.

 

 

What is the difference between the default value of the Card vs the default value of the concrete item?
