Change Image based on Drop down

Hello,

 

So i have a drop down menu and then an image below it.

 

I have all of my images saved in a connected onedrive folder in PNG format.

 

I want to be able to choose from the drop down list and then the image below it change based on that value.

 

E.G. If I select tree from the drop dow menu it finds the image named 'Tree' in the onedrive fodler fromt eh connection and displays it in the App.

 

This is currently only a development and will be linked trough SHarePoint in the future

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Change Image based on Drop down

I would look at implimenting a switch. (in the onchange of the dropdown)

Switch(Dropdown.Selected.Value, 
"Kittens", Set(Image, "kittens.png"),
"Dogs", Set(Image, "dogs.png"),
"Ponies", Set(Image, "ponies.png")
)

Otherwise instead of setting the image you could make image a visable parameter so 

you'd have 3 images in the below example and set the images however you want them and just have the switch manage the visiable part...

 

Switch(Dropdown.Selected.Value, 
"Kittens", Set(kittensimagevisable, true),
"Dogs", Set(dogimagevisable, true),
"Ponies", Set(poniesimagevisable, true)
)
