Note: I also reported this on GitHub: Screen Opens and Screen Starts both trigger when a screen is displayed · Issue #912 · thunkable/thunkable-issues · GitHub
I thought I was pretty clear on the difference between a “Screen Starts” event and a “Screen Opens” event…
Screen Starts = when a screen is first displayed
Screen Opens = every time a screen is displayed
But an app I’m developing isn’t responding that way. It seems like Starts & Opens are both triggering whenever I navigate back to the original screen.
So I made a simple demo in the legacy interface that shows the problem:
These event blocks should not both be firing when the first screen is navigated to again:
If I press Next, Back, Next, Back, etc. to switch between screens, I end up with an equal count:
I would expect the Starts value to remain at 1 unless I re-launched the app.
