Dashboard Widgets Not Updating458

This is likely to be a very simple problem and I've probably missed something obvious.

When I upload a new value to a stream, the widget on the dashboard does not update to reflect the new value until I refresh the page. Surely this is not the expected behaviour?

As a test I use a web browser to send the following
http://grovestreams.com/api/feed?compId=Outside&Humidity=99&Pressure=1111&Temperature=33&asPut&api_key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The result is a blank web page but analysis shows a return of 204


Any help appreciated
Thanks

Did you set the Polling value? The widgets poll for changes:

That's fixed it, I know it had to be something blindingly obvious!

Thanks.

Just an FYI:

GS Billing I/O (including the free account) measures I/O from all API calls including the UI since the UI uses the GS API. You can burn up a lot of I/O if you set a fast polling value and leave the dashboard open for long periods.

Good point Mike, I hadn't realised that the UI also uses I/O's.
Thanks for a great, fast response and the good advice.
