mysql database error
I'm writing a program with Dash where I update a graph according to the data the users selects in a dropdown menu. The graph data comes from a mysql db and I have an input field where the user can change the maximum of the y-graph (id='max_value')
If the user writes for example 5 in the max input field, everything goes well. If the users writes 50, he first types 5, the function 'update graph' is called and the program reads the data from the db. Before this is finished, the users types 0 and the function 'update graph' is called again and the program tries to read the data from the db again while he's still reading from the previous function (writing the 5). At least, I think that is the problem.
I know I don't have to read the data when the maximum value is changed and I could write a new function for changing the maximum value, but is there an other way to solve the problem? A sort of interlock?

If I'm right, mysql is multi-threads, so you could manage the problem if, at the first step, you start a transaction, and commit (or rollback) after reading what you want. By this way the second step (the same code actually) will start a new transaction when running, wich will wait the end of the first step (the commit) in the appropriate way.
I'm not sure of what's following, but this could be difficult to do if you don't use classes. I allways do it, creating a class for data access, and overriding that class when I need to access data from another part of the script. Establish and keep the connection in the class data ; it will done one time and will stay ready for the successive requests. I allways do it and it works well in that cases of the GUI event loop cross itself, making situations when you don't know exactly what occurs because it's almost difficult to debug.
Also, check what happens if mysql do a transaction for each request if you don't start it explicitely and commit it when you want.
I don't know if it's helpfull in your case, but I'm pretty sure if you make the effort to create separated classes for the different parts of your code, you will get a good value.
