Data Properties Variable

Hi,

 

I'm trying to put a condition to the edit page of my form where in if two or more items (using checkbox) has been selected, the DefaultSelectedItem should be Empty, and if only a single item is chosen, it would populate the edit page with the items current attiributes.

 

However this code i'm using does not seem to work.

 

Snippet:

 

If(
CountRows(selected) > 1,UpdateContext({defaultsuggested:""}),

UpdateContext({defaultsuggested:"Parent.Default"})

)

 

I tried removing the quote on the Parent.Default but it still does not work.

Hi @CarloPrincipe 

 

Parent.Default is not a tring variable and it only works in the context of an element having a parent

 

What you could do is this

If(
CountRows(selected) > 1,UpdateContext({defaultsuggested:""}),

UpdateContext({defaultsuggested:"parent"})

)

 

 

and then in default selected items property 

use If(defaultsuggested = "parent",Parent.Default,defaultsuggested)

Hi @CarloPrincipe 

 

For testing, add a label and specify its text property as defaultsuggested 

Juts to check what value is present in defaultsuggested

Hi @RezaDorrani 

 

As expected, It shows the "parent" when only a single checkbox is checked, but applies "" when multiple items are selected.
