Disable Button if drop down and text are empty

Hi Everyone, 

I have a button that I would like to remain disabled unless a text entry box and drop down have been selected. 

 

So far I have entered the below formula for the buttons (DisplayMode) but it does not seem to be working. 

 

If(
!IsBlank(SerialEntry_ETD_Input.Text) && If(Verification_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-") && If(Filters_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-"),
DisplayMode.Edit,
DisplayMode.Disabled)

 

Any ideas?

ohhhhhh! Yes ok, this is showing if any of those doesn't happen, but you want the opposite, this will do the trick:

 

If(
   (Len(SerialEntry_ETD_Input.Text)=0)
   ||
   (Verification_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-")
   ||
   (Filters_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-"),
   DisplayMode.Disabled,
   DisplayMode.Edit
)

Try

If(IsBlank(SerialEntry_ETD_Input.Text) && Verification_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="") && Filters_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value=""),DisplayMode.Disabled,DisplayMode.Edit)

 

Meaning all 3 should have value before button will be Edit

Hi, thanks for getting back to me. 

That does not seem to work. The dropdown boxes have 3 options:

 

"-"

"Yes"

"No" 

 

I need the button to be disabled unless the Serial Entry has text and the dropdown boxes have anything selected apart from "-" which is the default. 

If(IsBlank(SerialEntry_ETD_Input.Text) Or Verification_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-") Or Filters_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-"),DisplayMode.Disabled,DisplayMode.Edit)

Hi, Still no luck.

Hi,

 

This IsBlank is a bit finicky, I usually use Len(textbox.Text)=0

 

If(
   (Len(SerialEntry_ETD_Input.Text)=0)
   &&
   (Verification_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-")
   &&
   (Filters_ETD_Dropdown.Selected.Value="-"),
   DisplayMode.Disabled,
   DisplayMode.Edit
)

 

Could you try that and let me know?

 

Thanks,

Sancho

Thanks Sancho! I tried this but it's still not working. 

 

It seems to remove the error but the button should remain disabled until the entry has text and both dropdowns have selected an option other than "-"
