Hello, Ilaria,
 
Looking deeper, we have noticed that in the JSFiddle examples the mapping property contains a type: "delete" field.
If this field is removed, then the issues seem to be resolved: adding and deleting records works fine.
 
We have modified two of the examples for illustration: 

  1. Re-adding a deleted record: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/ys387ugd/
    Please notice that for deleting a record only the id and "DeleteRow" fields are required, for example:
    function deleteRecord() {
    this.update([{
    "RowId": "0",
    "DeleteRow": true
    }]);
    }
  2. Adding and deleting records: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/8mnp1764/

 
Could you please confirm if the same works fine on your end?
As mentioned before, our team will provide the fix so that the same will work when the type: "delete" field is present (ETA November 30th). 
 
Looking forward to your reply.
 
Kind regards, 
Vera

Hi Vera, 
thank you for investigating further.
Anyway, I had the field ‘DeleteRow’ in the mapping object because I started using your pivot before the mapping object was implemented (the ‘data model’ was passed to the datasource as the very first record of the data array), and according to your documentation I had to declare a ‘delete’ field to have the updateData working when deleting a record. Do you confirm that this field is not needed anymore, and it is enough specifying only the Ids of the records to delete?
I further modified the two examples removing also the assignment “DeleteRow: true” and they still works, indeed.

Thank you!
Best regards,
Ilaria

Hello, Ilaria, 
 
Thank you for your reply and for sharing these details. 
 
We would like to explain that by the initial design, the type: "delete" field was necessary for the partial update feature (as described in our documentation). However, while investigating the partial update issues that you’ve encountered, we found that without the type: delete field everything seems to work fine. The reason for this could be the changes that were introduced when the mapping object feature was added. 
 
With this in mind, we kindly suggest removing the type: delete field while our team investigates this case further. We will share the results with the ETA 30th of November. 
 
As always, please feel free to reach out to us in case further questions arise.
 
Kind regards, 
Vera

Hello, Ilaria, 
 
We are happy to inform you that our team has fixed the issue with the updateData() API call and multiple update and delete calls.
 
Our team would like to mention that the type: delete field is required for deleting records:
While investigating the issue further, we found that without type: delete, the records were just set to null. This gave the impression that deleting records worked without specifying type: delete, but records were not actually getting deleted. 
 
The fix to the issues is available in the latest version of Flexmonster: https://www.flexmonster.com/release-notes/.
You are welcome to update the component
 
Please let us know if the fix works fine on your end.
Looking forward to your response.
 
Kind regards,
Vera
