This week, a teammate had to handle a strange phenomenon 🤔 occurring while using an Angular App.
I remind you that Angular uses an asynchronous mechanism.
So, when you use the Angular App, for example clicking 🖱️ the menu, an event is thrown 🚀 , then proceeded later.
Most of the time, everything is fine 👌.
The heck is when you are app handle some events very quickly 💨 and so occur before expected 😮.
So you may have a functional value of a previous call used instead of the one you are waiting for.
And you end with an incorrect ❌ GUI.
There are many ways 💡💡💡 of dealing with such a setting.
But when you deal with 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐞 (https://lnkd.in/eJCwBNW2), you can just use the JS keyword 𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐢𝐭 before the call of your method returning a promise.
It will wait ⏱️ for the promise to return its result. YAY! ☺️
It made my day! 🙏 (I was investigating a complex fix with Angular change detection)
