Hi @Oos ,

 

Try Collecting the selected Buttons (CollectedButton) with a TimeStamp > Sort Collection by column TimeStamp > Set the Last Item on the Collection Set(LastesClickedButton, Last(CollectedButtons).ComponentTextColumn)

 

Please let me know if you need help with this.

Thanks,

Hi @Oos ,

Do you custom a Component control within your app?

Do you want to reference the variable set/initialized within the Component control in your app screen?

 

If you want to reference the variable set/initialized within the Component control in your app screen, you must define a Output property within your Component control, then bind the variable to the Output property in your Component control.

More details about defined a Output property within a Component control, please check the following GIF screenshot:Test.gif

On your side, you should defined a Output property (called "LatestClickedButtonValue") within your Component control above above screenshot.

Set the OnSelect property of the Button within the Component control to following:

Set(LatestClickedButton, Button1.Text)

Then within "Advanced" tab -> "Data" part, set the LatestClickedButtonValue (Output) property to following:

LatestClickedButton

After that, when you insert the Component control into your screen, you could reference the variable through the LatestClickedButtonValue (Output) property of the Component control using the following formula:

Component1_1.LatestClickedButtonValue

More details about the Output property of a Component control, please check the following article:

Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.
