Image Gallery not updating images dynamically

Hey there! I’m having some trouble getting my Image Gallery widget to update images dynamically, and I could really use some help.

So, here’s the deal: I’ve got these photos that are being captured and saved to Firebase, but for some reason, they’re not showing up in the Image Gallery widget in real-time. The weird thing is, if I manually enter the image URL into the widget settings, it displays the image just fine.

I’ve tried using the Blynk.setProperty(V8, "urls", photoUrl) function to update the image, but no luck. Interestingly, when I use a similar function to update the widget’s label, like Blynk.setProperty(V8, "label", photoUrl), it works without a hitch.

Now, here’s the kicker: if I refresh the page using F5, the new image finally appears in the gallery. It’s like the widget is being stubborn and needs a little nudge to show the updated image.

I’m really scratching my head over this one, and I’d be super grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Is there a secret trick to getting the Image Gallery to update dynamically? Or am I missing something obvious?

Any help or insights would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance, you awesome Blynk community!

Hello @fer.

Thanks for report. The gallery widget doesn’t seem to support real-time image updating. It is bug. And this bug reproduced for me. We will try fix this issue to next deployment.


Okay. Any alternative way to recover images from storage? (firebase for example). My project depends on this fixture. Thank you

@fer need wait fix for real time update or refresh page.
