I have a PowerApps form (EditForm) linked to a SharePoint list, 'Facts & Figures'.
The SharePoint list has two text columns, LinkText and LinkURL.
Each record's LinkURL goes to an external website (e.g., "http://cnn.com")
LinkText is the text displayed on the button (e.g., "CNN Web Site").
I can get the button to work okay if it's inside the EditForm, except in Internet Explorer, which is a job requirement.
OnSelect: If(!IsBlank(LinkURL), Launch(LinkURL))
If I move the button outside the form and into a gallery, I get buttons for all the records in the list, which is undesirable.
If i move the button outside the form and NOT in a gallery, I get invalid errors, as LinkURL, LinkText, and ThisItem are no longer valid. I'm guessing it's because EditForm was where the DataSource is defined.
How do i refer to LinkURL and LinkText if the button is not in EditForm?
Hi again, this fixed the errors in PowerApps. The button now works in Chrome and Edge, but Internet Explorer 11 is not working correctly.
I'm guessing this is an IE permissions problem, right? Is there any way around this? Would users need to change their local permissions or can i have my company's server people whitelist the PowerApps server?
Hi, I've got significant progress (thanks!) but am still trying to figure out why the popup isn't working in IE 11, even when the popup blocker is turned off. Did you test it in IE 11? I've sent out a help ticket to the team that manages our servers and software installation... i suspect it's some security/permissions setting that goes beyond a simple popup blocker.
You mean it works fine except IE11 Browser, and is the issue fixed now?
