Create a button that changes the required field for all Datacards in a Powerapps form from true to false

Hello Power Platform Community,

 

I am trying to create a button that I can use to set the Required fields of each Datacard in my PowerApps to false and vice versa for when I want to perform tests on my form. I created a button and set its OnSelect property to Datacard1.Required = false, but when I select it nothing happens. How can I go about implementing this?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jackson

You do not assign values to properties like that in PowerApps.  It is referential and just like Excel.

 

So, for your button, you will want to set a variable.  Ex:  UpdateContext({lclRequire: !lclRequire})

 

Then on your Required properties on your Datacards, set them to: Coalesce(lclRequire, true)

 

The Coalesce is just to set a default value in the event that the variable is blank (which it will be the first time).

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
