Deleting entry from firebase

Hi can you assist me with this please.

I am trying to delete single entries from firebase. When I press delete, it deletes the entry in the app but it is still there in firebase. When I use clear tag, it deletes everything in firebase.

You do not show these blocks ?


This is strange, why not just store the list?

This is how I did it with clear tag

it is stored in database, im just saying, if I remove one from the app, I wanted to remove that same one from the database as well
For example, just to delete aspirin. Doesn't make sense to try and remove it?

This works OK for me


Make sure Your MedBox.txt is not empty and that the content exists in your firebase data under /Meds

Just to clarify, this is the set up you have above?

Did you test it?

Yes I did, didn't work for me

Doesn't really help much :wink:

What didn't work ? Have you used Do It in companion to check output as each stage ?

To be on the safe side set

ProjectBucket = Automatic_Pill_Dispenser

at the start on the Button18 click event

Sorry, I meant its the same issue, it deletes from my list in the app but is still stored in firebase

OK, what do you get back in your taglist value ? (the raw return of taglist)
and what is the value in MedBox.Text ?

Had another look, the issue is the "clear" procedure, which empties the textbox.

To overcome this, set the listview selection to a variable, and use this in the Button19 and TagList events

Also, in the clear procedure you set the selectionIndex to the selectionIndex ?


I get the exact value

Actually, Button 18 is not the delete button, its the add.

So you're saying move the clear from the add button blocks to the delete blocks?

I said button19....

I did not say that at all ???

Look at my latest blocks, and change yours to match.
Make a selection from the listview, then hit button19
This will remove the selection from the listview and on firebase

Okay I am just understanding, I tried it and it works!

Thank you very much

And here I thought it was all about Button42.

I bid Button20!

I hear Button20, any one bid Button21?
Going once, twice, Button20!
