Human UI Value Listener live update



Hi all,

I’m having an issue with the “Value Listener” component of Human UI. It doesn’t update the value coming from “Create Button” component. If I connect a new VL component with CB component, it’s showing the updated value. The image below shows the value not updating above and the correct value below.
It updates sometimes, but I don’t know how to make this live update reliable.
To avoid this issue, I was trying to find a way to flow “true” value for a very short period like 1 second, with “false” value flowing at all other times, but I couldn’t find a solution either.
I’m not sure if Andrew @andheum still has time to take care of Human UI, but I hope I could get help on this issue.

Thank you!

That’s very odd… Can you upload (or DM me) the definition? The only times I’ve seen similar behavior are if something is configured wrong in the window or the button in question is triggering some kind of very slow operation (like a giant bake or something).


Sure, it’s part of a large definition under development. It’s a bit messy at the moment, but I marked with red sketch lines as shown below.

Buffering data seems to fix the issue, but I’m not sure if this will be a reliable solution.

It is to trigger a slow operation writing Excel data in sequence. I’ll DM you the definition.
Thank you for continuing your support to this great plugin!

I am missing a great many of the plug-ins you use, so I can’t open your definition to reproduce the issue. However, I have a suggestion that may fix the problem. Using Metahopper to “wirelessly” trigger a slow operation from a button can sometimes fix the “stuck on true” problem. See attached for an example Trigger Slow (11.0 KB)


Thank you so much Andrew. It seems to have fixed the issue. I would have never known this workaround using Metahopper without your help. Happy Thanksgiving!
