Single Line of Text Column Updated dependent on button clicked

Hi All,

 

Can I just say how helpul this forum is! You guys are all genuises!

 

Anyway,

 

In short I am trying to work out a formula that on a click of an individual button it will update a single line of text with a specific value.

 

From the initial screen (first attachment) each time the user clicks CAR button it will load a new screen (second attachment) and I want it to populate that text box with words of my choice. The button navigates to the screen correctly, but I need the "Acques" box to populate dependent on the button chosen.

 

(Each datacard will have its own button so the text can be set on the button)

 

I don't want to use variables.. just defaults if possible.

 

Hope this is clear enough. I am able to set defaults which don't change, but i'd like the text to be set manually if you like.

 

Thanks All 🙂

Hi @ LauraEmberson

 

Unfortunately, there is no other way to pass a  single line text from one screen to another screen without variables.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

If you use the variables, you can call the Navigate function, it also can pass the text you typed to another screen:

I created the two screens you mentioned using the Navigate function.  Default value in the drop down controllers are “No” and “10”.

 

Then I typed “hello world” in the Textinput and clicked the CAR button the value in the first screen passed into the second screen10.jpgResult:

Hope this helps you.

 

Best regards,
