Hello Jay,

as far as I can tell, updateElement() occurs when the user selects an
entry, so that appears to be too late.
An idea I am having right now: How about trying to use onComplete?
The request should have finished, so the values should be there to be
changed. Only question is how to get to the returned values ...
