Re: How to refresh RSS feed ?

Hi @hermans25

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you add a RSS connection within your app?

If you add a RSS connection within your app, I think the Refresh() function could not achieve your needs.

The RSS is a Action data source within PowerApps, the Refresh() function could only be used to refresh a table data source.

More details about Action data source and Table data source within PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/connections-list

Currently, if you want to manual or automatic refresh a RSS connection, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

As an alternative solution, I think the Timer control and ClearCollect function could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:6.JPG

Set the Duration property of the Timer control to following:

1000

Set the Repeat property of the Timer control to following:

true

Set the AutoStart property of the Timer control to following:

true

Set the OnTimerEnd property of the Timer control to following:

ClearCollect(FeedCollection, RSS.ListFeedItems("https://powerappslive.wordpress.com/feed/"))

On your side, you should type:

ClearCollect(FeedCollection, RSS.ListFeedItems("Your feed Url")) /*<- Use FeedCollection as data source within your app*/

Set the Items property of the Gallery control to following:

FeedCollection

The above FeedCollection collection would be refreshed every 1 second. You could use the FeedCollection as data source within your app.

In addition, if you want to invisible the Timer control, please set the Visible property to false.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: How to refresh RSS feed ?

Fantastic, this works !!!!

 

and furthermore I added also a Refresh button, with

 

OnSelect = ClearCollect(FeedCollection, RSS.ListFeedItems("https://powerappslive.wordpress.com/feed/"))

 

Which also works fine .

 

Many thanks for the fast and accurate answer!
