.Updates property of galleries?

Hi, thanks to @opax I have just noticed that galleries have a .Updates property.  Does anyone know how it works?
There is no reference to it in the documentation, at least that I could see.
It should return a record, but I have not managed to get anything but an empty record.
Thanks!

Re: .Updates property of galleries?

Hi

 

Update and Updates used to be available during the initial build.

1. Update

- used for particular section of a gallery (or CardGallery)

2. Updates

- used for gallery.updates (so that all items inside section.update are UPDATED when patching)

 

Initially, there was:

- CardGallery, where you can craete many small Sections (and use Update = {X: A.Text, Y:B.Text})

- Then, use Gallery.Updates to update all the section update

 

The purpose is that when you change UPDATE details, Gallery.Updates remain untouched.

 

After so many version, CardGallery and DataCard were removed by PG (if not mistaken, during the second version).

I asked for that to be available but in vain.

 

I don;t really see .Updates anymore, Where did you see it?

Re: .Updates property of galleries?

Hi hpkeong, thanks for replying.  I guess it is just a leftover for backward compatibility reasons.

I see the .Updates in the autocomplete for a gallery's properties in say a text box's text property, please see screen capture here...
