Using a flow to delay in Powerapps

I saw a recent video by Shane Young where he uses a flow to delay user interaction with a form.

The flow itself is not explained and I am new to flows so I just started messing.

I created a flow with (FlowVertraag) just one item: a Delay (not until) with the properties 5 and seconds.

Then I created a blank app with one button on a form with MyText as Text property and onselect

(sorry about the European syntax, please please Microsoft let me choose to use US syntax and words everywhere)

UpdateContext({MyText:"abc"})
;;FlowVertraag.Run()
;;UpdateContext({MyText:"xyz"})
When I click the button the text on the button is changed from abc to xyz in one second at first and in the blink of an eye all subsequent times.

Probably doing lots wrong, but what?

Add a "Respond to PowerApps" card at the end of your Flow. I believe that should fix it.

Wow, that was simple, thanx! Much easier then using a powerapps timer and setting loads of variables and proprties..

Thanks for the info! It helped on the project that I'm working on 😄 Stay safe!
