Command Bar Preview -power fx syntax

Currently using the patch command to copy a selected records values. This works great for text columns, but comes up blank for Fields that are Lookups. IE I have a field with a Customer Name or Project Name and this patch does not copy the data:

 

Patch('Hazards', Defaults('Hazards'), {'Customer Name': Self.Selected.Item.'Customer Name',Project:Self.Selected.Item.Project});
 
Does not error out but does not copy any data to those particular fields. Not supported or is my syntax ma

@CallenAET In order to patch a LookUp column you need to provide a record for this field. So you Patch Would look like this

 

Patch('Hazards', Defaults('Hazards'), 
{'Customer Name': {
            Id: ,
            Value: ""
        },
Project:{
            Id: ,
            Value: ""
        }
});

 

So you need to have the Id and the Value of the LookUp Lists item.

Thank you!

Can this also be used in conjunction with the navigate feature? I am trying to navigate to a new form with a lookup field defaulted.
