I have the following problem. I would like to have the input bar hidden but to keep the information related to it. Unfortunately when I hide it and reactivate it, I lose all the information. I can’t figure out why.
This is my code:
import streamlit as st if 'text' not in st.session_state: st.session_state['text'] = 'hello' st.write(st.session_state) st.radio(label= 'hide?', options= [True,False], key = 'hide_button' ) if not st.session_state['hide_button']: st.text_input(label = "write something", value = st.session_state['text'], key = 'text')
These are the 4 situations:
Phase 1: initialization: Text = ‘Hello’, as expected.
Phase 2: Uncover and change the text
Phase 3:Hide again: Text = ‘Hello again’, as expected.
Phase 4 ( the critical one): Uncover and text = ‘hello’ instead of 'hello again’
I cannot understand how this is possible.
Why during the hide rerun it lost the session state variable ‘text’? I was expecting session_state[‘text’] to remain ‘hello again’ …
Thank you all very much for your time and help
