is there an option to refresh a subgrid control from a powerapps control?
We currently have a setup with 1 subgrid, 1 custom grid. The custom grid creates rows in the subgrid but changes aren't reflected immediately, a manual refresh has to be triggered.
Can we call the subgrid resfresh somehow?
A PCF component lives in it's own self contained world it doesn't have the ability to talk to or control the other controls on a form.
If your custom grid PowerApps control is a field control you could update a bound return value and write a script at the form level to trigger the subgrid refresh as you refresh the bound value.
If you PowerApps control is a DataSet control, sadly, I can't think of any way to tell the page that the datagrid needs to be updated.
but for calling the refresh of the subgrid I need to be able to get the control from the formcontext. However, I cannot seem to find the formcontext in the context (found several contexts in the unexposed API but formcontext is not one of them).
