I am trying to figure out the following formula, in which there are 2 dropdowns (Dropdown #1: Colors, Dropdown #2: Status)
If the Dropdown Colors is selected to Red, then the dropdown status must be N/A. I want this field to be autopopulated.
eg: OnSelect: IF(Datacardvalue.selected.value="Red", "N/A")
Dropdown 1 Options - Dropdown 2 options
Red - N/A [Automatically select this option]
Green - Processed [Automatically select this option]
All other colores - (Selected all other options from the dropdown list)
This formula does not autoselect the dropdown status of N/A. There are currently 3 dropdown options in this field N/A, Pending, Processed .
You had mentioned the OnSelect action in your message. It appears perhaps you are trying to change the value of the second dropdown when the first is selected? If that is the case, this is not something you can do in PowerApps. You can't directly assign values to another control. However, your other control can observe value in other controls.
So, in this case, consider setting the Default property of the second drop down to the following:
Switch(DataCardValue.Selected.Value, "Red", "N/A", "Green", "Processed" )
This should work for you, but is also dependant on the Items property of the second dropdown.
Give this a try and see if you have success and it is what you want.
I hope that it is helpful for you.
Hi @SarimDeaza ,
Do you want to auto-populate the Status Dropdown (Dropdown # 2) box based on the selected value within the Colors Dropdown box (Dropdown #1)?
Could you please share more details about the formula you typed within the Items property of the Dropdown #2 box?
Based on the formula that you mentioned, I think there is something wrong with it. I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:
Set the Default property of the Dropdown #2 (Status Dropdown box) to following:
Dropdown1.Selected.Value = "Red",
Dropdown1.Selected.Value = "Green",
Please check the following GIF screenshot for more details:
Thank you for your response @v-xida-msft.
The formula that you mention is the same that we are trying to use since the post :(, however, when we try to start the formula PowerApps shows us an error:
