Fx for If condition to display mode edit only else view

Hi,

I'd like to make some fields to be set to Edit if the user is the person entered in the person field, manager field.

I can get this fx to work on the DisplayMode property if i hardcode the email but i want to make this work on a datacardvalue16 but cannot get it to work:

If (User().Email = "email", DisplayMode.Edit, DisplayMode.View)

Anyone know what the fx is to make another field display in edit mode only if the users name is in a previous field?

The DataCardValue16 field is a person field, with the data source SPO.

If I use the following i get red line under =

If (User().FullName = DataCardValue16, DisplayMode.Edit, DisplayMode.View)

I was nearly there, figured it out and this works:

 

If (User().Email in DataCardValue16.Selected.Email, DisplayMode.Edit, DisplayMode.View)

Hmm.. try removing .Email in my example above and just add a dot after DataCardValue16 and see if any suggestions dropdown.
