Thanks for your help,

Re: Update context based on Listbox Select

Hi @Scobie,

 

As suggested by @Drrickryp, could you please share the solution that you have found?

 

Basically the Variable could be updated with two function:

UpdateContext()

and 

set()

for Galbal variable

 

For ListBox control, we could get its value by ListBox.Selected, and for specific field, it should be: ListBox.Selected.FieldName

 

and if Multiple selection has enabled, the value then is stored in 

ListBox.SelectedItems

 

So to change Variable value with the ListBox selected value, the formula should be:

UpdateContext({VariableName:ListBox1.Selected})

or

UpdateContext({VariableName:ListBox1.Selected.FieldName})

for the Set() function, it should be:

Set(VariableName, ListBox1.Selected)

Or

Set(VariableName, ListBox1.Selected.FieldName)

For Multiple items, switch the ListBox1.Selected to ListBox1.SelectedItems.

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: Update context based on Listbox Select

Hello @v-micsh-msft,

 

Yes I was able to use:

UpdateContext({VariableName:ListBox1.Selected.FieldName})

 

But I was having trouble getting that to work with how the ListBox sets up its items from the help I got from dinusc in this question I asked:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Formatting-a-Listbox/m-p/147763/highlight/tru...

 

At first having the .singleColumn at the end of the items property gave me problems. But by changing it around abit I got it to work. 

 

It is a little hard to explain so I thought it would be easier to delete the post.

 

Hopefully that helps, 

Scobie
