Hide Field Based On Value of Another - Using Multiple Form Modes


Wondering if I could get some assistance. I have a one page power app. On the left a gallery, on the right a form that is default to View mode. I have a button that then changes the Form to Edit mode allowing users to add a new record. What I'm trying to do is hide Field 3 when the Value of Field 1 is not "Travel" (field 1 is a drop down based on values defined in SharePoint list). I had used 'Request Type'.Value = "Travel" on the visible property of Field 3 which worked great on the view mode, but it did not re-appear when I was in Edit mode trying to add a new record and selecting Travel from the drop down. Just wondering if there is an additional instruction I need to add.  Thanks in advance for any help provided.




If(Form1.Mode=FormMode.New&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Travel" ,true,false)

Try these 6 combinations as your criteria does not seem to be clear to me:

If you want it to work in any form mode:

 DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Travel"


DataCardValue1.Selected.Value <> "Travel"


If you want it to work in View form mode:

If(Form1.Mode=FormMode.View&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Travel" ,true,false)


If(Form1.Mode=FormMode.View&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value <> "Travel" ,true,false)


If you want it to work in View and New form mode:

If(Form1.Mode<>FormMode.Edit&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Travel" ,true,false)


If(Form1.Mode<>FormMode.Edit&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value <>"Travel" ,true,false)

View solution in original post

Basically when it's in view mode...and the request type is travel I want to see the two travel related fields, otherwise hide them. When it's in New form, and someone selects travel from the drop down, i want the two travel related fields to appear for completion. Otherwise, in any scenario I do not want the fields seen.


I tweaked the last code you gave slightly and it is doing what I want now.

If(Form1.Mode=FormMode.New&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "Travel" ,true,false) Or
If(Form1.Mode<>FormMode.New&& DataCardValue1.Selected.Value ="Travel, true, false)


Thank you SO much for your patience with me on this. All because I was not referring to one field properly.  (Facepalm)
