The Update Form UI Task will force an update to the form data.
This is useful when Specification Macros consist of more than one potentially long running task.
Using this task will allow some feedback mechanism to be presented to the user after each task is complete. Typically a form would not update until all tasks have finished.
For example a macro that consists of the tasks:
Could have the potential for each to take more than a few seconds for each to complete.
Using the Update Form UI task it is possible to inform the user once each of the long running tasks are complete.
For example the tasks added to the macro could appear in the following event flow:
Each Drive Constant task would set the same constant to different values, such as:
A control on the user form would respond to each update of the constant changing to present the user with feedback.
Placing the Update Form UI task after the Drive Constant Value tasks would trigger the recalculation of the form data.

This task has different types of Outputs. For more information about Outputs see Specification Macros Task Node.
Outputs are only available within Specification Macros. Currently Outputs are not available for Specification Flow.
This task supports Status Outputs. These can be used to perform different actions depending on what the status outcome of the task is. For more information see Status Outputs in the Task Node Outputs section of Specification Macros Task Node.
The status output navigation is as follows:
