Picking data from row of UDTable

Hi all,

Very new to PSU so please go easy. I’m using the latest and greatest version as far as I know.

My question is around a UDDynamic UDTable that I’ve created. I have UDButtons on each row of data which, when clicked, show me incorrect table data via $EventData via Show-UDToast.

The following is a code snippet, hopefully it’ll render correctly:

$Columns = @(
New-UDTableColumn -Property Name -Title “VM Name” -ShowSort -IncludeInExport -IncludeInSearch -ShowFilter -FilterType text
New-UDTableColumn -Property Guest -Title “OS” -ShowSort -IncludeInExport -IncludeInSearch -ShowFilter -FilterType text
New-UDTableColumn -Property PowerState -Title “Status” -DefaultSortColumn -ShowSort -IncludeInExport -IncludeInSearch -ShowFilter -FilterType select -Render {
New-UDElement -Tag ‘div’ -Attributes @{style = @{‘backgroundColor’ = $EventData.PowerColour; ‘color’ = ‘white’}} -Content { $EventData.PowerState }
New-UDTableColumn -Property PowerButton -Render {
New-UDButton -Id “btn$($EventData.PowerButton)” -Text $EventData.PowerButton -Icon (New-UDIcon -Icon $EventData.Icon) -IconAlignment left -OnClick {
Show-UDToast -Message $($EventData.Name) -Duration 10000
# Send Start-VM
New-UDTable -Id ‘vm_table’ -Data $newvms -Columns $Columns -Title ‘VMs’ -ShowSearch -ShowPagination -ShowSelection -Dense -PageSize 15

The table itself presents and updates itself beautifully, but whenever I click on any of the buttons in the last column, it gives me back $EventData from (I believe) the final parsed PSObject in the array, rather than data from the correct row.

Any pointers would be gratefully received. I’m having a lot of fun creating dashboards in PSU so far, so thanks very much for creating it!

It’s because you are setting the ID of the button. This is causing the last row’s to overwrite the previously set button. Try removing the -ID parameter on your button to see if that works better.

That was exactly it Adam, thanks very much! Now works as expected.

Have a good weekend.
