Refresh page when visibility regained

I am launching the Calendar from my app in order to let the user create a new appointment. I am doing this from a Page using the InvokationManager and the Page is in turn inside a NavigationPane. I would like to refresh the contents of the page when the user closes the Calendar app and my app page gains visibility.

 

Is there a way to do that? I looked for a visibility signal in the Page class but couldn't find anything relating to visibility change.

Re: Refresh page when visibility regained

The only way to do this with invocation is if you invoke as a card.

 

You can then hook in to the cardDoneMessage...

Re: Refresh page when visibility regained

not sure, but maybe the process state changes, or the thumbnail/fullscreen signals are emitted.

Re: Refresh page when visibility regained

Thanks BBSJdev. I invoked the card and then put the refresh processing that I needed in the childCardDone signal and everything worked as desired.
