Fill Dropdown with information

Hello. I am working on a SharePoint list in wich I would like to have a dropdown with numbers from 0 to 100 counting 5 to 5, something like 0 5 10 15... Is there a way to do it on the PowerApps form with a formula instead of manually setting those values. Any help would be great

Re: Fill Dropdown with information

You can accomplish this using a timer and a collection

 

Under your App control, initialize a timer and Clear your collection.

Set(DDCtr, 0); Clear(DD)

Then add a Timer control to the screen where your dropdown will appear and set the visible property to false so it is hidden. (I didn't hide it for the purposes of this set of instructions.) 

Set the 4 highlighted values as follows:
1.  Set the OnTimerEnd action to:

Set(DDCtr, DDCtr + 5);Collect(DD,{DDValue: DDCtr});

2.  Set the Start property to true so the timer will start when the screen become visible.

3.  Set a duration for your timer -- I used 100 (milliseconds)

4.  Use an If statement in Repeat to turn repeat off once you get to your target value.  Note that I check for 95, not 100 so that I get only 5 - 100 by 5s in my collection.

Then set your DropDown to get its data from the collection you created, in my case DD and get the value from DDValue.

Execute the On Start for your App properties (right click on 3 dots by App, then click On Start) to initialize DDCtr and clear the collection. 

Then Play your screen and the dropdown will populate with the desired values.
Note:  If you need to repeat for testing, be sure to execute the on start each time or you will add to your collection and wind up with duplicate values.
