Enable/Disable autoupdate

Hi all,

I have a table that displays a SQL agent job status, and a button that starts that job.

When the button is pressed, I want the table to refresh/update with the status returned from the SQL agent job


$session:JobInfo = Get-SqlAgentJob -ServerInstance $cache:cfgSQLserver -Name $cache:cfgSQLJobName | Select CurrentRunStatus,...,...,...

But I don’t want to be making that request when the button hasn’t been pressed.

Is this sensible…

New-UDDynamic -Id 'randomOuter' -Content {
    if($session:autoUpdate -eq $true) {
        $autoRefreshSplat = @{
            Autorefresh = $true
    } else {
        $autoRefreshSplat = @{
            Autorefresh = $false
    New-UDDynamic -Id 'randomInner' @autoRefreshSplat -Content {
        $session:rand = Get-Random
        New-UDTypography -Text "autoupdate=$session:autoUpdate, random number updated to=$session:rand, update occurred=$(Get-Date -f "hh:mm:ss")" -Variant 'h6'

New-UDSwitch -OnChange {
    $session:autoUpdate = $Body
    Sync-UDElement -Id 'randomOuter'

This results in…


So the above example seems to work, but is it the best way to achieve the goal? As in a way to enable/disable autorefresh on a table?

And then, how do you change the refresh interval for a New-UDDynamic? The -AutoRefresh updates every 10 seconds but I’m after every 2 seconds when the job is running. I tried “-RefreshInterval 2” but when included it results in nothing displayed.
