Attribute Table refresh issue

Added by Geo Dev 24 days ago. Updated 1 day ago.

Status:Open
Priority:High

Description

The Attribute Table doesn't immediately update when fields are set with the Quick Field Calculation Bar.

Steps to replicate the issue:
- Open the Attribute Table of any vector layer
- Start editing
- Select an existing field in the drop-down list of the Quick Field Calculation Bar
- Fill the textbox of the Bar with a value or an expression
- Click on Update All button: the table doesn't update
- Force the refresh of the table (e.g. clicking on cells or sorting the columns): the table updates

Same behavior with Update Selected and Update Filtered buttons.
The user has the perception that the Update buttons do not work (priority: High).
The issue already exists in 2.18.12 but doesn't exist in 2.14 (minor release regression).
The issue also occurs in QGIS 2.99.0-Master.

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi 23 days ago

  • Regression? changed from No to Yes

If it worked in 2.14 then is a major issue as it is a regression in between two LTR releases.

#2 Updated by Alexandre Neto 22 days ago

I faced the same problem.

At least with selected features, I was also able to refresh the table of attributes by scrolling it vertically.

#3 Updated by Steve Lowman 21 days ago

I confirm this issue with shapefile layers. And, I confirm it updates when you touch the scroll bar - you don't have to actually move it.

Is it occurring with non-shapefile layers, too?

Also I am getting a similar but less consistent issue with manual edits to individual cell values in Table view. It just did this the first time I tried to manually edit a cell, only displaying after I did the scroll, but after that I could not repeat the issue with a manual edit in the same layer. The issue is consistent with the Field Calculation bar, though.

It's a general issue. Same unexpected behavior with all the vector data formats.

I think #17280 is a duplicate.

Related to #17262, which also concerns data entry in attribute table 'table view'.

Added video demonstrating data entry in layer with one feature, showing data fails to display until Save is clicked.

Added video demonstrating data entry in layer with two features, showing data displaying two cells behind data entry and failure to display calculated data until Save is clicked.
