UI_template button - not refreshing dashboard

I have 3 buttons:

  • inject
  • ui_button
  • ui_template

Using these buttons, I send an integer value. Another function interprets the sent value and changes the color of an object in the Dashboard depending on the value.
With the first two buttons, the color changes immediately. However, after pressing the ui_template button, the color changes only after manually reloading the Dashboard page or sometimes the color does not change at all.


Why is this happening and how can I fix the ui_template button?

UPDATE:

If the buttons and the second object are not in the same group, the page must be manually reloaded for the changes to take effect.
Or if I open two the same sites and click a button, status will change only on active page.

Hi and welcome.
Have you tried unchecking all but refresh on reload at bottom of config.

If this does not fix issue can you export a minimal example of this flow. How to import/export a flow

In order to make code readable and usable it is necessary to surround your code with three backticks (also known as a left quote or backquote ```)

``` 
   code goes here 
```

You can edit and correct your post by clicking the pencil :pencil2: icon.

See this post for more details - How to share code or flow json

Thank you.
Post is updated.
Any idea how to fix it. Any solution?

Not understanding about the different groups as the flow you posted is one group.

To get the other browser tab to update you need to delete msg.socketid.

e.g.

Thank you very much; it's working, brilliant :slight_smile:
I have a similar question: When I click twice on the Error button, why does it show only one entry in the table, and after a manual refresh, why does it show both entries?
