Hide / Unhide fields based on text input in another field

Hi,

 

I believe this should be a simple one but I cant seem to make this work. I have a single line field named "QTY" which will have a number entered ranging from 1 to 12.

 

Depending on that number, it will then show the relevant number of fields to then be populated with text describing the item. 

 

Example:

 

QTY = 3

 

Item 1: Description text (entered by user)

Item 2: Description text (entered by user)

Item 3: Description text (entered by user)

 

 

In "Item 1:" visible options, I have the following: If("3" in DataCardValue7.Value,true,false)........ but no joy when 3 is entered in the QTY field. 

 

Would it also be possible as I move down the item number description fields, that not just a specific number unhides the field but a range of numbers instead.

 

Any help will be appreciated!!!

 

TIA 🙂

Hi @MiniMe83 ,

As noted QtyReq was an example name as I did not know the name of your control. It should be (now you have told me this)

UpdateContext({vQty:Value(DataCardValue20.Text)})

Hi @MiniMe83 ,

I will call your control QtyReq - change to your name.

On the OnChange property of QtyReq, put

UpdateContext({vQty:Value(qtyReq.Text)})

On Item1 Visible

vQty>0

Item2 Visible

vQty>1

and so on for the rest

On the OnVisible of the Screen

UpdateContext({vQty:0})

Hi @WarrenBelz ,

 

Thank you for replying, I have created a separate page to use the information provided just to test, unfortunately I'm getting an error.

 

The error reads: The function Value has some invalid arguments.

 

Location: DataCardValue20.OnChange - This is the QtyReq field, which has the following in the OnChange properties: UpdateContext({vQty:Value(QtyReq.Text)}) 

 

The screen OnVisible properties are: UpdateContext({vQty:0})

 

and the Item fields Visible properties are set to: 

 

Item 1: vQty>0

Item 2: vQty>1

Item 3: vQty>2

 

Any other help will be appreciated!

 

Thanks

@WarrenBelz Thank you! Very new to sharepoint and power apps.

 

Thanks again!

Hi @WarrenBelz 

 

I hope you are well! Is it possible to have the "vQty>0" and another command / formula: "If(DataCardValue2.Value = true, true)" together in the visible section of a module?

 

Ive tried "vQty>0; If(DataCardValue2.Value = true, true)" but I get an error. Individually they work but together no joy. 

 

Any help will be appreciated thanks,

 

Mike

Hi @MiniMe83 ,

Yes and you don't need all the true statements if the data value is a Boolean value

vQty>0 && DataCardValue2.Value

OR

vQty>0 && DataCardValue2.Value=true

 

Thanks @WarrenBelz 

 

I have another query, I have a simple yes/no column which if selected to yes an additional column appears. This works by pressing the alt key and demonstrating the action in powerapps.

 

The problem is, after saving, publishing and refreshing the sharepoint form / list, the additional column is present on the screen even if the yes/no button is set to no. If I toggle the yes/no button and it disappears and only appears when required. Any idea why this is, I need it to be hidden when the form / list is first opened. The additional column visible setting is: If(DataCardValue22.Value = true, true)

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks again for your previous help!!

Hi @MiniMe83 ,

Have you set the Default of DataCardValue22 to false?

Hi @WarrenBelz.

 

Thank you for your help, it looks like I've got the SP list pretty much where I would like it to be......... for now 🙂

 

Is there any chance you can help with another issue I'm now facing? When adding a new entry via desktop, after completing the form, which doesn't have any required fields, and selecting save, nothing happens. If I were to navigate to the same list and add a new entry via a mobile device, it successfully saves, albeit it doesn't look or perform how I would like to.

 

The ultimate goal is to have the entries saved (just the information added) and allocated a unique reference number. Once saved an email is then sent to the submitter confirming the enquiry has been successfully logged and has been allocated a reference number.

 

There are further flows I wish to add which I'm hoping to add myself but I just need to get to a point where entries are actually being saved.

 

Thanks for your help, hopefully it's not a tricky one.
