Cannot detect variable content changed in variable overview (edit mode)

Hi guys,

The Problem:

The problem is related to for example, when I want to evaluate an expression (Qlik Expression) to true or false, I evaluate it with qlik.app.evaluateEx() and it works fine, the expression itself comes from a variable and we just want to get the result from evaluating it but whenever I change the content of the variable within the variable menu/overview in edit mode, it does not detect the change and still goes with the old value stored.

The Question:
So my question is quite simple, is there an event that detects any change within the app, including variables. I don't want to have to give the developer the job of listing the variables used in the expression or anything of the sort, im looking for a clean solution where everything is more or less automated.

PS: As no one seems to know, are there any event handlers that allows for the object to be re-painted when a property or value is changed or for the properties within the hypercube to get updated

Thank you for reading
