How to clear a Text Input

Hi to all


I have this situatión, I have two screen, in the first one I have a text input in order the user type the name,one the user click the next button I filtered the information in the second screen, everything looks ok, the problem is when I return to the first screen I continue seeing the name of the user, how can I clear that information 


Thank you



ComboBox with multi select



Items: Distinct(Filter(product,Title in Listbox.SelectedItems),Description)

Default:LookUp(Product,Title in listbox.SelectedItems.Result,Description)

textInput: Concat(ADDescription.SelectedItems,Result&",")


while using this scenario, Its working when there is only one item in the combobox and if we select it the description is selected default and added to the textbox

But, when we select multiple items in the combobox, on description it shows both descriptions are selected but its only populating one description on top of the list.

Can you help me with were i'm messing with the formula.

Thanks in advance.

@Mühle your solution works like a charm, thanks a bunch!

This solution worked for me as well, but I need a bit more explanation. Why do you need to "toggle the "resettext" variable to true, then back to false"? This is the only part I don't understand.




So I am using Power BI Dashboard to use Power App for the end user. Now when I used text input for any text entries, it didn't go blank after I submitted the entry. The old input remained on the text input box even after I pressed submit button. I followed the instructions provided by you here, didn't work for me. Any suggestions where I could have gone wrong?

Thanks for your comments above, these threads are very helpful. @mr-dang @hpkeong 

To reiterate your explanation, the following code:

UpdateContext({resettext: !resettext})

 The code needs to be written twice because if the user navigate from Screen2 to Screen1 and back again to Screen2, the text input will still be there when they go back to Screen1?
