Adding variables

I have five labels and each is assigned a variable (vLabel1, vLabel2, vLabel3, vLabel4, and vLabel5) so that OnSelect, it toggles between true and false. I have it set so that the label is blue when the variable is false and red when it is true. All I need to do is to calculate the number of red labels versus the number of blue. I am just finding it hard to create an equation to count the number of labels that are true versus the number that are false. I need to be able to say Red = 2, Blue = 3, for example.

Hi @hughrmarks

 

One way to do this is to add your variables to a table. In the example below, the Table function creates a table with 5 rows. The column name is 'Variable' and each row in the table corresponds to a vLabelX variable.

You can then call the CountIf function and specify a condition to return a row count.

The formula to return a count of red labels would look like this:

CountIf(
        Table({Variable:vLabel1},{Variable:vLabel2}, {Variable:vLabel3},{Variable:vLabel4},{Variable:vLabel5}),
        Variable=true
)


The formula to return a count of blue labels would look like this:

 

CountIf(
        Table({Variable:vLabel1},{Variable:vLabel2}, {Variable:vLabel3},{Variable:vLabel4},{Variable:vLabel5}),
        Variable=false
)

Hi @hughrmarks,

 

I agree with @timl's thought almost, I have made a test on my side and my app's configuration as below:19.JPGAdd a Label control within your screen, the Text property of it set to following formula:

"Red="&CountIf(
        Table({Variable:vLabel1},{Variable:vLabel2}, {Variable:vLabel3},{Variable:vLabel4},{Variable:vLabel5}),
        Variable=true
)&", Blue="&CountIf(
        Table({Variable:vLabel1},{Variable:vLabel2}, {Variable:vLabel3},{Variable:vLabel4},{Variable:vLabel5}),
        Variable=false
)

Best regards,

Kris
