Help with filter

Hi all,

 

How are you?

 

I would like to find an efficient way to filter a datasource in function of a combobox. This combobox has sever options: A, B, C, ... and All. If I choose All, I don't want to apply the filter. I have thought of using the following trick:

 

Filter(Datasource, If(Combobox.Selected.Value = "All",1=1,Column = Combobox.Selected.Value))

Is there any way to achieve this?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Best regards,

 

Fernando

Re: Help with filter

Hi @fernandocxv ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Is there some error message with your Filter formula?

Further, could you please share a bit more about the column (filter column) you used in your Filter formula? Is it a Single text type column or Choice type column?

 

Based on the formula you provided, I could not find any syntax error with it. Please consider modify your formula as below:

Filter(
Datasource,
If(
Combobox.Selected.Value = "All",
true,
Column = Combobox.Selected.Value
)
)

If the filtered Column you used in your Filter formula is a Choice type column, please consider modify your formula as below:

Filter(
        Datasource, 
        If(
           Combobox.Selected.Value = "All",
           true,
           Column.Value = Combobox.Selected.Value
       )
)

Re: Help with filter

There is no issue, I just was looking for a way in which I avoid using 1=1 in my code. As I can see, it is better solution to use true.

 

Thank you @v-xida-msft!

 

Best regards,
