App screenshot

I can't seem to figure out what I am missing.

I have a component that is supposed to display data after it receives an id of the exact record hence I am using an imperative call. I can see in the log that the data is received but my component is not reloading with the data.

    <lightning-card  title="Advisor Details">
        <p class="slds-p-horizontal_small">Card Body (custom component)</p>
        <template if:true={advisor}>
            <lightning-layout vertical-align="center">
                <lightning-layout-item padding="around-small">
                  <lightning-layout-item padding="around-small">                    
                <lightning-layout-item padding="around-small">
                <lightning-layout-item padding="around-small">
        <template if:false={advisor}><p>No advisor data available.</p></template>   
        <p slot="footer">Card Footer</p>

the js.

import { LightningElement, wire, track } from 'lwc';
import {subscribe, MessageContext} from 'lightning/messageService';
import getCompleteAdvDetails from '@salesforce/apex/GetAdvisorRecords.getCompleteAdvDetails';
import RECORD_SELECTED_CHANNEL from  '@salesforce/messageChannel/Record_Selected__c';

export default class PartnerDetailComponent extends LightningElement {
    @track advisor;

        this.subscription = subscribe(
            (message) => this.handleMessage(message)
        this.recordId = message.recordId;        
        console.log('Received message ' + this.recordId);
--------------------------[![enter image description here][1]][1]
        //I have hardcoded the values here but the advisor property doesn't //cause the component to rerender
        let pAdv = {};
        pAdv.Name = 'Bossman';
        pAdv.Company = 'RBL';
        pAdv.Title = 'Senior Counsel';
        pAdv.Engagement = 'Advisor';
        this.advisor = pAdv;

        getCompleteAdvDetails( { mentId: this.recordId})
        .then((result) => {
            this.details = result;
            if (this.details) {
                console.log('Successful details retrieval!'+ JSON.stringify(this.details));
                 this.advisor = this.details;
                    let pAdvisor = {};
                    let fName = this.advisor.First_Name__c;
                    let lName = this.advisor.Last_Name__c;
                    pAdvisor.Name = fName + ' ' + lName;
                    pAdvisor.Id = this.advisor.Id;
                    pAdvisor.Title =this.advisor.Title__c;             
                    pAdvisor.Company = this.advisor.Company__c;
                    pAdvisor.Engagement = 'Type of Engagement '+ this.advisor.Type_of_Engagement__c;
                    // pAdvisor.Mentees = 'Number of Mentees '+element.Number_of_Mentees__c;
                    // pAdvisor.Email = 'Email '+element.Email__c;
                    // pAdvisor.Phone = 'Phone' + element.Phone__c;
                    // pAdvisor.Expertise = 'Aread of Expertise '+element.Area_ofS_Expertise__c;
                    console.log('PAdvisor ' + JSON.stringify(pAdvisor));                 
                this.advisor = pAdvisor ;
                console.log('Updated advisor. '+ JSON.stringify(this.advisor));

        .catch((error) => {
            this.error = error;
            console.log('Error '+ this.error);
    connectedCallback() {

I have also tried getRecordNotifyChange([{recordId: this.recordId}]) and it was not successful. I am not sure I did it correctly though since I assumed that the advisor property used in template will be updated when I update the recordId.

Any pointers?


Console output

  • Is advisor property marked as track?

  • Could You provide more details - full js class code. advisor should be decoreated with @track.

  • Yes it is @Raul. I have updated the js part.

  • Wondering if it helps to also pass the scope to the subscribe method. On another note, you should also unsubscribe the event as a best practice.

  • Thanks Raul. Could you explain what you mean by passing the scope? The subscribe method is working ok since it is fetching the Id as expected. I have taken note on the best practice. Will do that.

I think the problem is that you are reassigning the variable, and overwritting the actual tracked object.

You can both:

this.advisor.Name = 'Bossman'; //As fas as it is @tracked


this.advisor = {...pAdv};


this.advisor = Object.assign({},pAdv);

For not tracked variable or reassignations you need to use {} syntax or Object.assign. If you don't the change will not be noticed by the framework.

Hope it helps

  • I will try this. Thanks for your help.

  • Let me know, but it should work in any of that ways. Apr 19 at 17:54

You dont need the @track annotation since you are reassigning the entire variable. Can you try these 2 things? Deep clone the object (just as an attempt) and before assignin the value, assign it to undefined like:

this.advisor = undefined;
this.advisor = JSON.parse(JSON.strinify(pAdv));
  • That didn't work either. I have decided to change the design of the app. Thanks anyway.

Javier, thanks for your pointers.

I finally got it to work in another context.

the reassignment worked like this..

this.displayResults = [...this.displayResults, this.searchResult];

The component gets rerendered and captures the new elements.
