Display hidden date field on dropdown

Hi,

 

I'm hoping someone can help a newbie with a problem I'm having with conditional displays.

 

I have a dropdown called Status and when I set Status to "02" I want a hidden date field to become visible. I've set the date field to Hidden and tried to use an If statement on the dropdown but I can't seem to get it to work.

 

Thanks

What you are looking for is the Visible property. Set Visible on the Date field to

If(Status.Selected.Value  = "02", true,false)

This will tell Powerapps that when you have selected the "02" choice from the dropdown named Status, you want the Date field with the visible property to be visible.  Otherwise, if anything else is selected, you want the date field to be invisible.

Hi @settloe_99 ,

Could you tell me where do the drop down get value?

1)get value from data source

In this situation, could you tell me what is the field's data type that the drop down use?

If it's choice, you could try: 

If(Status.Selected.Value=02,true,false)

If it's text, you could try: 

If(Status.Selected.fieldname=02,true,false)

2)set the drop down's items: [01,02,03,...]

You could try: 

If(Status.Selected.Value=02,true,false)

That's what I've been trying but I'm getting an error of "Name isn't valid. This identifier isn't recognized"?

 

Thanks

Can you post a screen shot of your error and of the definition of the two controls in question?  That would enable us to help you better.

Hi @settloe_99 ,

Could you show me how do you define the status control?

If the data of the control comes from data source, what's its data type?

Hi,

 

The data source is a SharePoint list and the data type is set to Choice

Hi @settloe_99 ,

Please try this formula:

If(Status.Selected.Value=02,true,false)

Not If(Status.Select.Value=02,true,false)

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply but this doesn't work either. I get the same error on the first If statement.

 

Thanks
