Responsiveness Glitch

Hi Bubblers,
I’m not sure if this is a bug or a setting I can’t see. I have a repeating group that is sorted by a date. Within the repeating group I have a date picker that autobinds to the cells date. I have noticed that when the list is several items long or bigger, when I select the date and it commences autobind with that cell, it goes awry. The date element seems to move before the other cell items and a chain reaction goes off to resort out each line items, leaving the elements and dates not matching up with their appropriate cell. Advice, help or should I lodge a bug report?

It is probably because you are running a workflow action (autobind is basically a workflow action to make a change via the database, so there is a time lag there) and this workflow is changing data that is going to automatically update the repeating group.

To avoid the issue, you can consider having an icon in the repeating group that would indicate to ‘edit’ whatever the data is in that cell, and let the user in a popup change the date value, then when the popup is closed and the date value had been changed in the DB, it should work more smoothly.

Thanks @boston85719 . I did have the set up you mentioned already and was trying to move to a configuration that could minimise a few steps to make the user experience a little more efficient. I can definitely revert to that design, but I’m wondering now if there is a workaround, perhaps to stall the workflow of the repeating group organizing itself until the autobind workflow is completed. if not, I guess the icon to open and edit is ok … I’d just love there to be a more efficient way. :slight_smile:

I think there is a way to use the ‘make static’ operator after the datasource dynamic expression

Which will make it so no other new values would be added if added to the database (ie: if searching users in RG and new user signed up they wouldn’t appear), but I am not sure if it will make it so no values associated with already displayed data will be updated. If it does that, it would be the first step to implementing a workaround.

After that you’d need to set up a workflow to send the list to the RG after the updates have been made.

Thanks @boston85719 I wasn’t aware that you could do that. That’s awesome. Will start there and see how I go.
