"Input's value is changed" Event

Hi There,
How I could trigger an event when an input value is dynamically changed? if not possible with this event, is there another way around to trigger an event based input’s value changed dynamically ?
Thank you.

Hey @rsunnari,

All you have to do is right click on the input and click, “Start/Edit Workflow.”

Hey Rsunnari,

Just go to workflows, add a new trigger → elements → an input’s value is changed (see image)

And choose your input element in the settings

Hi Johnny,
I have did that, but my problem is that after doing the workflow for new trigger -> elements -> an input’s value is changed, the function just work if you actually change the value by typing, but what I am looking for is to trigger the event if the value changed automatically by auto calculation or binding to the database.

You can use the New database trigger action in Backend Workflows

db-trigger

I searched for the database trigger action but I couldn’t find it. I am new to Bubble and I am still using the Hobby plan for the moment, and once I upgrade I should be able to see the database trigger action, and get to test it.

I would great if the Bubble administration team look into the possibility to have the Input’s value is changed triggers an event if the value is changed automatically not necessarily to actually type in it.

Hey @rsunnari,

You can find the option in the Backend Workflows, check out the reference on how to enable backend workflows.

I was trying to do this as well but same as you learned Bubble doesn’t see the value of an input as changed unless it is changed by the User.

Instead of doing the calculation on the page in the Input field, I switched it from “input value is changed” to actually doing the calculate in the workflow and it works. Maybe you can do that for yours as well?

Are we talking about “Trigger workflows to run automatically when your data changes”? That functionality does not exist in hobby or personal legacy plans.
