Calculation of Labels / Text Input inside PowerApp

Hello everyone,

 

I am working on an expense PowerApp with SP Lists as the data source. I am currently trying to create a cost of mileage calculation as attached (1).

 

Is it possible for the PowerApp to do this calculation and ultimately serve the output? Unfortunately I cannot figure out how to automatically do the calculation in the field which makes it a bit difficult. 

 

What I am trying to achieve here is in a label: Calculate a number from another label and a text input label.

 

For example:

Label: 0.55

Text Label: (amount of kilometers) for example, 10

Calculated Output: 0.90 * 10 = 9

**Note, I put the calculation in there, but only the calculated product is needed.

 

Thanks for the assistance with this!

Your Text property on the Total Cost label should be:

  Value(TextLabelKilometers.Text) * .9

 

You mention Label: 0.55, but I am not sure how that fits into what you want.  In your picture, you have a multiplier label that has a Value of 0.55.  I assume you wanted to calculate by that and not 0.90 as you stated in the text.  If so, then your formula would be:

  Value(TextLabelKilometers.Text) * Value(TextLabelMultiplier.Text)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
