Updating Button state and Paragraph text on click

I’m running a Bokeh serve app and want to update the disabled and text properties of a Button and Div widgets when that button clicked. The problem is that also in the same callback another code that takes around 2 mins to run is executed. What im trying to do is upate the status of the two widgets before running that code but what I see is that the text and button change only after the whole code is finished.


from bokeh.models import Div, Button
from bokeh.layouts import layout
from bokeh.io import curdoc

button_download = Button(label=‘Download’, button_type=“danger”)
paragraph_server = Div(text=‘Wait for click’, width=400, height=100)

def download(event):
button_download.disabled = True
paragraph_server.text = ‘Downloading’

Time consuming code

l=layout([button_download, paragraph_server])
doc = curdoc().add_root(l)

Its only a example to ilustrate the code.

Thank you in advice,

Josu Catalina.

The answer is here: The bokeh document is only updated after the callback has finished

I get this error which dont occur when directly calling the function instead of using curdoc().add_next_tick_callback(function)

Maybe im losing something

First of all, please use formatting to properly format your code/exception blocks. It’s very hard to read them otherwise, when they’re mixed with the regular text.

Second of all, I cannot tell you what’s going on without you providing any code. If you provide the code that doesn’t work for you (ideally, stripped down to the very part that doesn’t work), I will take a look.
