How to check if shape objects in a gallery are visible or not.

Hi

 

Using the Interactive Calendar example from here, There is a gallery called CalendarGallary containing a text box and two circles for each day. I want to add a Button that checks if,

 

 

HolidayCircle.Visible = true, 
and 
DaySelectedCircle.Visible = true

 

 

for every date in the gallery and then change the variable ValidMsgBoxState to "Yes" if this condition is met. 

 

EDIT: Ive now got something that i think should work but doesn't any ideas why?

I set Button1.onSelect to :

 

If(IsBlank(
  LookUp(CalendarGallery.AllItems, 
  And([@HolidayCircle].Visible = true,[@DaySelectedCircle].Visible = true), 
  [@HolidayCircle].Visible)),
  UpdateContext({ValidMsgBoxState:"Yes"}))

 

 

Your help much appreciated.

Thanks

This took some time, but I ended up using the formula in the circle's Visible property instead of trying to reference if it's actually visible.

Clear(MyTestCollection);
ForAll(CalendarGallery.AllItems,Collect(MyTestCollection,{Day:Day(DateAdd(_firstDayInView,Value,Days)),ValidMsgBoxState:If(And(DateAdd(_firstDayInView,Value,Days) in _holidays,_selectedCount > 0 &&
DateAdd(_firstDayInView,Value,Days) >= _selectionStart &&
DateAdd(_firstDayInView,Value,Days) <= _selectionEnd),"Yes","No")}))

This returns this result:

Hi 

Thanks for this, i'll take a look - which circle's visible property did you use? the DaysSelectedCircle or the HolidaysCircle ??

 

Does it is still work if the start and end date are different months? I assume it does as your referencing _holidays collection?

 

Thanks

Both. It's whether holiday and selected are visible as in your previous post.

I did not test it on days spanning multiple months.

Hi @EricLott, ive marked it as a solution because it does answer the question, however i realised that it was a bad question because your solution only works if the slected date range start and ends in the same month, which is a result of using the ciricle.visible feature.

 

I have now constructed a more generalised question, the solution to which should provide a more robust and transferable implementation. Please check it out at : https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/How-to-check-if-a-list-of-dates-conflicts-wi...

 

Thanks
