Sharepoint List Link Column

Hi, 

I'm creating an app to update a Sharepoint list. The list contains a hyperlink column that consists of two properties, URL and display text.  I cant figure out how to update the display text in the list. The only property I can modify is the URL. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Sharepoint List Link Column

I will assume you would like to modify this within PowerApps (since the screen shot is from SharePoint showing how you do that in SharePoint). Please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

example on SharePoint offers both URL and display value

The default form in PowerApps only shows url, and when you submit this form you'll get the url edited in both Url parameters of the SharePoint list.

So I was hoping we might be able to patch the two values similar to how Flow can do this, but this format errored out because we are not offering more than 1 return value (see advanced options screen shot):

 

Patch(URLTest,Defaults(URLTest),
{Title: "Bing",
MyLink:
    {
    Url:"https://www.bing.com",
    Description:"click"
    }
})

This all seems to indicate that this is not possible (at least from a form control) today. I did however find that someone had achieved this with Flow here:

Adding @anees@GregLi to keep me honest.

 

Also feel free to add this to our Ideas forum so others may vote on it, and we may consider an enhancement:

Thank you,
