async menu init working randomly

See original GitHub issue

Describe your goal Fill a select menu dynamically from a async func

Expected This is what I came up with:

//This 2 funcs are methods of a class
//This just returns an array of random strings
private list(ctx) {
  return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    resolve(Array.from(Array(5)).map(x => parseInt(Math.random() * 100).toString()))

private async getList(ctx) {
   let lista = await this.list(ctx)
   return lista

//This is inside another method
let self = this'unsubscribe-account', self.getList,
       setFunc: (ctx, key) => {
          console.log('hello', key);
       setParentMenuAfter: true

This is the output. Weird thing is the list is printed when the menu shows up but already when it hides after clicking on a button. The other weird thing is it only prints “hello number” once after trying several times to show the menu and click an option.

[ '19', '72', '91', '28', '91' ]
[ '92', '36', '27', '8', '61' ]
[ '1', '77', '79', '8', '44' ]
[ '9', '24', '8', '85', '68' ]
[ '93', '44', '70', '84', '45' ]
[ '78', '19', '50', '9', '19' ]
[ '75', '95', '52', '1', '5' ]
[ '5', '74', '62', '27', '59' ]
hello 5
[ '34', '38', '10', '25', '67' ]
[ '30', '40', '81', '55', '67' ]

Sure, I will try to migrate what I have. Thanks for your help!

If you dont have much yet I suggest you should use v5 of the library. Allowing to switch this behavior off as #106 is about will only be added there. Also v5 has some neat improvements.
