I am being driven slowly mad by what seem to be intermittent issues with Axure prototypes not obeying the ‘rules’ in terms of event loading and interaction execution. A prototype I was working on was working exactly as desired for about 2 hours, then, with no change to the file itself except closing and opening, it now ceases to work the way I would expect it to. I can’t tell if this is me, my computer, or a n axure bug in v184.108.40.20607 Mac.
I want to use cases to set a filter on a repeater on page load. The case takes a variable value and applies a repeater filter based on this. Once the filter is applied, I want to update a variable with the visibleItemCount so that I can render it in a text object.
I have found a number of oddities:
- Using onpageload to set the filter and subsequently set the variable/text values always fails. While the filter is applied, the visibleItemCount does not get set. It only happens on the onload page event, so it may be a conflict with the timing of the repeater’s load event, but I’m not sure.
- If I use a click action on a button on the page then it all behaves as desired.
- If I try to fire a click action using “Fire Event” on the same button, inside the onpageload event, it does not work.

Please save me from going completely mental. I’ve been at this for hours (and hours)
