What is a 'live' query?

Hello there,

I was just experimenting with the queries section of the platform and I noticed that there is a “live” switch for queries. Out of curiosity - What does this do exactly? How is a “live” query different from a normal query!?


Hi CodeInspectah,

The Live switch on the Queries form will return the results instantly when a change to a table/s has occurred that the query is using. The page gets reloaded automatically to update the results.

The below video will show you how a live query can work in an application developed in Five.
