Filter Gallery on Item's Status using a button

Hello,

I have set up a gallery from a Sharepoint list. The list (RequestList) has a column titled Decision Status. The column is a Single Text column. I want my user to be able to click one of four buttons to decide which status to view. I am also only allowing the user to view items on which they are the listed supervisor (Supervisor).

 

App OnStart: Set(varUser, User().FullName);

 

For my buttons:

  • Pending: OnSelect = Set(SelectedStatus,"Pending")
  • Approved: OnSelect = Set(SelectedStatus,"Approved")
  • Denied: OnSelect = Set(SelectedStatus,"Denied")
  • All: OnSelect = Set(SelectedStatus,"All")

 

For my gallery -- Items: 

 

Filter(RequestList,Supervisor = varUser &&
       If(
          !IsBlank(SelectedStatus) && SelectedStatus = "Pending",
          'Decision Status' = "Pending",
          .IsBlank(SelectedStatus) && SelectedStatus = "Approved",
          'Decision Status' = "Approved",
          !IsBlank(SelectedStatus) && SelectedStatus = "All",
          true
       ))
 

 

 

 

However, I get a delegation warning on my If formula, and also...nothing happens when I push a button. I really appreciate any help or ideas! Thank you.

Hopefully I am understanding your app correctly.  I believe SelectedStatus is a SET variable that stores a text string which can be one of "Pending", "Approved", "Declined" or "All".  'Decision Status' is a single line text column in SharePoint.

 

Please try this code and let me know the result.  Share a screenshot of any error messages.

Filter(
    RequestList,
    Supervisor = varUser,
    'Decision Status' = SelectedStatus 
    Or 'DecisionStatus' = "All"
)

 

I missed the Items code in your initial post.  Sorry for that.

Gallery's Items is:

 

Filter(RequestList,Supervisor = varUser &&
       If(
          !IsBlank(SelectedStatus) && SelectedStatus = "Pending",
          'Decision Status' = "Pending",
          .IsBlank(SelectedStatus) && SelectedStatus = "Approved",
          'Decision Status' = "Approved",
          !IsBlank(SelectedStatus) && SelectedStatus = "All",
          true
       ))

 

 

Below is a screenshot, the lefthand column is my gallery that should display items based on the button selected.
