Count a Variable up

Hello,

 

I have the variable UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:0}) and a SharePoint lists with 6 columns which can be true/false. 

 

Now everytime a colum is true it should count +1 and if it´s false it should reset to 0 again for that colum. 

 

If(seat1=true,_varseatstaken+1);If(seat2=true,_varseatstaken+1);If(seat3=true,_varseatstaken+1);If(seat4=true,_varseatstaken+1);If(seat5=true,_varseatstaken+1);If(seat6=true,_varseatstaken+1);Patch('3floor_1',Gallery4.Selected,{taken_x0020_places:_varseatstaken})

I´ve tried a lot and didn´t got any solution. I also tried to do it without a Variable just with the column but didn´t get any results.

 

Would be happy if someone can help me.

 

Best Regards

You must use UpdateContext to change the value of the variable, so it will become like this:

 

If(seat1,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1})); etc...

Good luck!

First of all thank you for your help.

 

I have one question left.

I want to Patch the field in SharePoint with this function

Patch('3floor_1',Gallery4.Selected,{taken_x0020_places:_varseatstaken})

So normally it should work isn´t it?

 

However thank you.

To me it looks like it should work. Only one way to know for sure - try it out 🙂

Unfortunately it´s not working.

It´s not counting the variable correct.

 

;Refresh('some input')
;If(seat1=true,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1}));If(seat2=true,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1}));If(seat3=true,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1}));If(seat4=true,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1}));If(seat5=true,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1}));If(seat6=true,UpdateContext({_varseatstaken:_varseatstaken+1}))

;Patch('3floor_1',Gallery4.Selected,{taken_x0020_places:_varseatstaken})

 

It´s still not working. 

The problem this time is that if seat 1=true your getting 0 taken places and if seat1-seat4 are booked your getting 6 taken places it´s really strange.

Is it possible, because I have a lot of SharePoint columns with yes/no

Put a label somewhere and let its Text-property be 

 

Text(_varseatstaken) 

 

What do you initiliaze the variable to, and when? Check to see when/how the variable changes value.

You could do:-

 

CountIf(seat1) + CountIf(seat2) + ...etc.

 

Assuming you only have 6 columns - if you have many more, this wouldn't be the right way to go.

Thanks for your answer.

If I press a button it should set the value on true, which is working correctly because I can see in SharePoint the right values.

 

When seat1=true the value is 0

When seat2=true the value is 1

When seat3=true the value is 3

When seat4=true the value is 6

 

Could it be that we need something like Gallery.Selected stuff for the seats?
