DateDiff()

Hello All,

Before submitting a form I am trying to set a time condition that the end time of the task is not before the start time. I can verify that the DateDiff() formula below does produce a negative value if endTime < startTime. However when the logic evaluates to true, the form is still submitted.

Here's the code:

 

If(
    DateDiff(startTime, endTime, Seconds) < 0,
    LabelForTimeError.Text = "TIME IS WRONG!",
    SubmitForm(SweepForm)
);


Your help is greatly appreciated!

It was a bug in my code. My understanding of the scoping in PowerApps is not there. I left a Navigate function outside the If statement, and no matter what happened in the conditional, the Navigate function ultimately is called.

A little clarification, is starttime and endtime variables or DatePicker or from a column. If variable, can you show the formula

startTime and endTime are local variables defined by Now() in their respective buttons.

 

UpdateContext({endTime: Now()})
