Filling fields in a form by pressing a button

Hi, what I'm trying to accomplish is having a button "Reset" that when is pressed, it does fill some of the fields in a form, I tried by using a variable in the OnSelect property of the button :

Set(_var;!_var)

 

the variable is a boolean of course, and in the DataCardValue Default property I put this :

If(_var = true; "17,00"; _var = false; Parent.Default)

 

So when the variable is true it will show the 17,00 value, when false it shows the value from the source, which is a SharePoint List at the moment.

But when the 17,00 value is displayed, if I submit the form (with a "Save" button), the value on the list does not change.

 

With this Reset button I am supposed to put this value(which is always the same) in the field/fields(which will always be the same aswell), then submit the form, and then Refresh the source :

If(_var = true; "17,00"; _var = false; Parent.Default);;

SubmitForm(formName);;

Refresh(listSP)

 

Thanks for any help/suggestions!

Re: Filling fields in a form by pressing a button

Hey @ProNewbie 

 

I carried out a test on my side and this works as expected. I am able to store the values in my SharePoint list.
 
Configuration :
 
Field -> Default Property - > If(_var = true;"17,00";_var = false; Parent.Default)
Reset Button -> OnSelect -> Set(_var;!_var)
Submit button OnSelect -> SubmitForm(FormName)
 
Are you getting any errors? Please share more details so might help you better.
 
Hope this Helps!

The Datafield and (Displayname also) were wrong, puff, how embarrassing.

 

Any way thanks for the help 😄

Hey @ProNewbie 

 

Can you please share more details about the Update property of this data card? The control where you are displaying this value should be there in the "Update" property. Also, what is the type of field that you are trying this value to?
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: Filling fields in a form by pressing a button

Hi @yashag2255 , the Update property of the DataCard is "DataCardValue55.Text" which is the DataCardValue I was talking about previously, the type of data is Text, on the SharePoint list is Single Line Text, on PowerApps also all DataCardValues have the Form property set to "TextFormat.Text".

Also in all fields there will be only numbers with commas.

Re: Filling fields in a form by pressing a button

ok, I tried on a testapp with another sp list and it works for me too.

I guess there is a problem with the SharePoint list in some area of my app.

I'll try to figure out what is preventing the sp list from being updated,

 

thanks
