Hi,

 

When using a component in a repeat grid dragging and dropping a text file onto a text field contained within the repeated component doesn't update the textfields:

 

Expected behaviour:

- The textfield in each of the repeated components should update to reflect the data

 

Actual behaviour:

- Only the (selected) textfield in the selected component instance updates

 

Operating system: Mac

XD Version: Latest

 

Any ideas? Feels like this is a bug.

 

Thanks

I get the same. If I ungroup the component instance and group it as normal group, then repeat grid it, it works as expected.

Thanks for the tip this worked for me! Strange that you have to do that to get it to work thought, hopefully they are working on a fix.

How do turn your grid back into componnets so you can edit them after you drag in your text? Im having the same issue.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is any way to switch an element back to a component once you have ungrouped it from the component. I ended up just ditching the dynamic text until the rest of the design is fully nailed down 😕 Hopefully there will be a fix for this in the future since the dynamic text is really not useful if it can't be used with component elements.

Kinda crazy that this is even an issue.  Components: big value point.  Grids: big value point.  But they don't work when you put them together?  Could this be a bug, not a feature gap?

I'm having this issue too. I was so excited to use the feature that lets you link components to other component states in a prototype, and was going to use that within a repeat grid, but now I can't get the content in there. I even tried manually entering the content but it's updating the text for all components in the grid to be the same thing.

Hi, apologies for the delay in responding.

 

It's interesting what you suggest, howeve, for me, it's certainly not a viable solution because if you ungroup the component....it is no longer a component so you cannot make updates to the master component and see those reflected in the repeat grid. Therefore you're back having to manually update everything independently.

 

It appears that these are several great features that simply dont work well together,  repeat grid, dynamic (text) data and components.

 

I really hope that this is on the feature horizon as it's a really common and v.important usecase, available in other tools. For reference have a look at components in Sketch (which i last used about 2 years ago) and how, even then, they could be repeated whilst their individual properties (shapes etc) and content (text / labels etc) are be exposed, really easily overriden and could be bound to data sources (text, JSON etc etc etc).

 

Super powerful, really accelarated the design process and flow (not without it's own set of issues)....guess I would just love to see some of this in XD. 🤞🤞👍
