Show Error after submit

Hey guys

 

 

First of all I wanna say you're helping me out so much so thank you for that!!!

 

So I'm almost there and there is only one thing that should be integrated in my app but I can't get my head around it.

So thanks to @Meneghino I have the code so that on submit there is a time constraint.

But now I want when that time constraint happens that a little message shows up to let the user know that he/she can't order anything anymore.

 

This happens in the Disabled of my Submitbutton/icon:

Not(DataCardValue6.SelectedDate > Today() ||
(IsToday(DataCardValue6.SelectedDate) &&
(Hour(Now())<9 || (Hour(Now())=9 && Minute(Now())<=45))))

And I already have a Error message textbox in my powerapp with a static error message in it (just plain text):

So I want that static text to show when the submit happens when the Disabled is triggered.

Kind regards

Re: Show Error after submit

Hey

 

 

Well I think I found a solution just now. Its kinda dynamic now.

What I did is in the Visible of the ErrorMessage I tried the following:

If(IconAccept1.Disabled = true,true,false)

So when the icon is Disabled the message shows, when the condition are met to Submit the error hides.

But it stays there until the conditions are met but its better than that its there all the time.

 

Kind regards

Re: Show Error after submit

Sorry my suggestion didn't work, but your idea is much nicer anyway. Good work!

 

And yes, if you wanted the message to only appear after clicking Submit with invalid fields, I would try moving the conditional logic from Disabled to OnSelect, like you suggest, and never disabling the button. For instance, if you're unsatisfied with the error message being there from the start, I would try putting this in OnSelect:

 

If(DataCardValue6.SelectedDate > Today() ||
(IsToday(DataCardValue6.SelectedDate) &&
(Hour(Now())<9 || (Hour(Now())=9 && Minute(Now())<=45))), UpdateContext({ ShowErrorMessage: false }); <Original OnSelect expression>, UpdateContext({ ShowErrorMessage: true }))

In theory, you should be able to set the ErrorMessage's Visible property to ShowErrorMessage after doing this and it should work.

 

Best of luck and keep up the good work!

Re: Show Error after submit

Hi Tom,

 

You want an error message to appear when you click submit and the submit button is disabled? I'm not sure if this is possible (without doing anything really odd), as you can't click submit when the button is disabled. If you just want the message to appear while submit is disabled, though, then I think you could just use an If() with the expression from the Disabled property in ErrorMessage1's Text property, like so:

 

If(Not(DataCardValue6.SelectedDate > Today() ||
(IsToday(DataCardValue6.SelectedDate) &&
(Hour(Now())<9 || (Hour(Now())=9 && Minute(Now())<=45)))), "", "my error message")

 

Does that help?

Re: Show Error after submit

Hey @Paul_C

 

 

Yeah you're right. Maybe I should do the check OnSelect maybe then I can make this work?

Because I think your answer is a good step in the right direction but it remains static when I try it.

 

Kind regards

Re: Show Error after submit

Hey @Paul_C

 

 

Thanks you for sharing your solution. This one is even more dynamic then my one!

But i remarked that the submitting takes a little longer (it was just my computer that runned slow, so it works perfectly).

 

So I will ask my employer what he thinks is the best way of displaying this issue. But you made me alot more wiser on how to handle errors and sorts.

 

Kind regards

Re: Show Error after submit

Hi @Tom_Slosse

Well done in finding the solution.  Just a comment.

This code:

If(IconAccept1.Disabled = true,true,false)

Can be simplified to this:

IconAccept1.Disabled

This is because IconAccept.Disabled is Boolean to start with

Hi @Anonymous

The error information should be contained in the Errors() function.
