Duplicate Field Answers over two screens

Hi,

 

I am sure this is really simple but google really isn't helping.

 

I have some inputted answers on one screen, i need the same answers to appear on another screen. I don't want to have to input them again, can I just look up the answers from the other screen?

You can reference the values from one control in other controls, to display the same data. For example, you can add a label and edit the Text property to show Dropdown1.Selected.Value and display whatever is currently selected in that dropdown.

I see you are using dropdowns - are you trying to give the user the ability to change those on other screens? Or are you simply trying to display the selection without giving the user the chance to change it?

Thank you for this, this has helped massively. One of the boxes is a combo box. Would it literally be Combobox1.selecteditems ?

Comboboxes are a bit different, in that the SelectedItems property is a table capable of holding more than one selection. You can't display a table in a label, unless you use Concat() or another function to turn the table into a string. Once you get past that, yes you can refer to the selections out of a combobox too.

 

Hope that helps,

Bryan
