Table blinking glitch

Has anyone had a tulip table that is linked to a query constantly and aggressively blinking? The blinker option is toggled off and it’s much more abrupt than that. Not sure how to fix.

Hey @rrees -

Are you checking if a datetime field is greater than (or less than) the current time? This forces the query to re-update every second, and based on the table size, this can take more than 100ms (causing a noticeable flash).

If so, the way I have done this in the past is to, on step enter, store the current time to a variable, then use that variable in my filter. While the behavior isn’t identical, its very close for most usecases. This variable can be updated every 30 seconds with a timer trigger (on the step) if users will be sitting on that step for extended periods of time.
