Display a collection field in a textbox

Hello,

 

I have a simple collection created when clicking on a button. I want to display some fields from that collection on some textboxes... I did not find any way to get that simple result. Any help from here ?

 

Thanks for your reply,

Re: Display a collection field in a textbox

Hi

 

Collection is a Table.

You can display either using:

1. Gallery: Items = CollectionName, and textbox (inside the Gallery) with Field Titles, OR

2. FirstN(CollectionName, #), # Number to records to display, or use LastN, of Combination of LastN and FirstN for specific records, OR

3. Create a Dropdown1, with Items = Distinct(Collection Name, Field1 to display), and in correspondence to a TextBox, with: LookUp(CollectionName, Field1 in Dropdown1.Selected.Result).Field2, Field2 is the field to be displayed in TextBox.

 

Wish I understand what you want.

 

TQ

Well you asked for help.  Help was provided, you didn't like it. Then you found a solution and you didn't share it.  There is only one name for the kind of person you are.
