Create button that references a datafield?

This seems like a very simple process, but for some reason I'm getting stuck (I am new to PowerApps). I'm trying to create a button that when clicked, opens the address stored in a field (via connection to a SharePoint list of column type Hyperlink). I have tried the following formulas in the OnSelect property of the button:

 

Launch(DataCardValue3_1)

Launch(Text(DataCardValue3_1))

Launch("https://www.google.com/")

 

And none will work. I have made sure that the display mode on the button is set to "Edit" and not "View."

 

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Re: Create button that references a datafield?

I was putting the button inside the datacard field and that's what was causing the problem. Once I made the datacard field smaller and placed the button adjacent to it, the link opened without issue.
