Count cells in a repeating group

I was trying to make a header field for my repeating group that shows the number of results currently being displayed, and have that number update as I change search and filter parameters. I saw the similar question here…

and that works for the initial display but as I filter and search and the cells displayed change, I want it to update.

do you need it to change on a worklfow action (in example after you hit enter on the filters) or instantly?

This should work.

…unless there are issues with search and filter changes I don’t know about (which is completely possible).

yes, that was the idea

I really appreciate it. Works perfect!

another question if you don’t mind. how did you know this? I have only got about 60 hours into my bubble journey, and This is the second time in the last 24 hours that arbitrary text has saved the day and solved two pretty gnarly problems. it seems very non intuitive to me, and if you wouldn’t have come along and basically solved it for me, I don’t think I would have ever figured it out on my own. just wondering where I need to go to learn this kind of thing.

I am FAR from a seasoned Bubbler, and my 1-year anniversary will be January 3rd of next year.

I do, though, have a LOT of experience in db design and coding since I’ve been doing it on and off since around the late 1980s. But Bubble is a very new experience to me.

I found that a lot of tricks can be found on YouTube. There are some decent channels out there to explain how to do stuff.

this one gives me total packages before filtering with search, which is useful too…
