Checking a false variable from SharePoint if it is false returns false

Hi, I have a SharePoint list with a column "Hidden" which has boolean data type. In Power Apps I'm showing the items in a table. By a click on a button the user can filter the items either by only visible, only invisible or all. My filter function for the table looks like this:


showVisibleProducts = "All" || 
showVisibleProducts = "Visible" && Hidden = false ||
showVisibleProducts = "Hidden" && Hidden = true


It works fine for all and hidden products, but for the visible ones the "Hidden = false" fails. Even if I print out the "Hidden" attribute it says:


My solution is to use "in", like: Hidden in "false". That works but does anyone has an idea why the comparison with "=" is wrong?

Could you change it slightly and run an If statement going through each option?


For example if on your Gallery Items you put the following

Items = If(showVisibleProducts = "All", SharePointListNameHere, showVisibleProducts = "Hidden", Filter(SharePointNameHere,Hidden = "Hidden"), showVisibleProducts = "Visible", Filter(SharePointNameHere,Hidden = "Visible"))


Not had a chance to test it but that should hopefully go through each option till it's true then apply the filter etc, you could also throw a sort at the start to sort by ID if you wanted.


Also I hope it makes sense haha
