How to Print Patch Error

Hi,

 

I'm playing around with PowerApps and trying to build up my skills. One feature I'd like to impliment in the app I'm designing at the moment, is a detailed error notification. This would be good for debugging, and if I can figure out how to save the details of the error I could also perhaps log them to a file at a later date.

 

Here is the code I have at the moment:

 

Patch(
    Table1,
    Defaults(Table1),
    {Fruit: TextInput1.Text},
    {Age: TextInput2.Text}
);
If(
    IsEmpty(Errors(Table1)),
    Notify(
        "Success",
        NotificationType.Success
    ),
    Notify(
        "Error Encountered",
        NotificationType.Error
    )
)

I'd like to change the "Error Encountered" part, to contain the patch error message, which can be seen when in the app studio (see attached - including a clientRequestId and serviceRequestId which I have omitted).

 

Any ideas on how this can be done? Many thanks.

Have you looked at the Errors function?

This will give you a Table of Errors which will include more detailed information.

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your response. Revisiting that link with fresh eyes, I found the solution.

 

My formula now looks like this and is working:

 

Patch(
    Table1,
    Defaults(Table1),
    {Fruit: TextInput1.Text},
    {Age: TextInput2.Text}
);
If(
    IsEmpty(Errors(Table1)),
    Notify(
        "Success",
        NotificationType.Success
    ),
    Notify(
        First(Errors(Table1)).Message,
        NotificationType.Error
    )
)
