Do Math Inside PowerApps

Hello, 

I want to add three fields on a screen in a totals box somewhere below these quantities boxes. I'm not even sure where to begin. Any thoughts?

Doing math in PowerApps can be done similar to very basic Excel.

 

For example: if you put this formula into the Text property of a new label (...and changed the DataCard references to the names in your app)

 

Value(DataCard_DispositionQty.Text)
+ Value(DataCard_Disposition-2Qty.Text)
+ Value(DataCard_Disposition-3Qty.Text)

 

The result would be:

 

3

 

If you are wondering, why was each DataCard_DispositionQty.Text enclosed within a VALUE function:  VALUE converts a text data type to a number.  You can only perform math on a number data type.
