Update Textinput in gallery

Trying to update my duration so far for each item consintously.  

 

Right now I have a timer set every 5 seconds to UpdateContext({now: Now()}) and the gallery item is set to 

 

 

If(IsBlank(ThisItem.Start)=true,"",DateDiff(DateTimeValue(ThisItem.Start),now,Minutes))

 

This doesnt seem to do the trick.  It updates once but not continously in the gallery.

Re: Update Textinput in gallery

Hi @drobinson 

 

I carried out a test using your formula and this works fine for me.
 
Can you verify few properties of Timer Control:
1) Duration: 5000
2) AutoStart: true
3) Repeat: true
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: Update Textinput in gallery

I have all of those settings set like you mentioned.  

 

It works for textinputs outside of the gallery.  

 

Inside the galery seems to only update after the first round of 5 seconds.

Hi @drobinson 

 

Do you mean it updates the text inputs inside the gallery control after 5 seconds? If yes, that is because you might have entered the UpdateContext formula on the "OnTimerEnd" property. If you want this to get updated as soon as the timer is started, you need to place this formula on "OnTimerStart" property.

Re: Update Textinput in gallery

Figured it out.  I am an idiot.  I was thinking I still had to formula set to seconds and was expecting a change in data every 5 seconds.  I had to wai the full minute to actually see the change. A big waste of timeon my end. Guess that's life.
