I tried to send an email notification to user that your request number XXXX was created/approved/rejected.
I used "Your request Number :" & RequestNumberText.Text and it shows only the first part.
When I used Concatenate ("Your request Number :", RequestNumberText.Text), it still shows only the first part.
The RequestNumberText.Default is set to Text(Now(),"yymmddhhmmss")
I tested with the other field, the username which come from User().Fullname and it also get the same result.
But when I test with the textbox which I let user freely type anything. Both commands are working fine. So I suspected the string concatenation method may be different for the Textbox that was disabled and forced the value through some command.
Could you please tell me how can I put data from such fields into the string?
FYI: I tested again by adding a basic label and try to simply concatenate the text in the label. The result confused me. Sometime the text appear, sometime it didn't. The status of RequestNumberText.Text reported in the bottom part of the coding window it said RequestNumberText.Text = Blank, but sometime it tell the correct value like RequestNumberText.Text = 20220623102042.
But for Email, it is always blank.
Something similar to this. The actual one is in other language, so I just show you the structure of the code.
"<br>The system received your request number " & RequestNumberText.Text & " and is sending for review and approval. <br>

I tried to replicate and could not. Couple of troubleshooting suggestions:

Update!!! I just got a stupid workaround.
During the test, I reflect RequestNumberText.Text in a temporally label to verify the value.
Now I just use my Label.Text to pass the value from RequestNumberText.Text to my string instead. AND IT'S WORK.
Still, this is not how it is suppose to work. Someone please help me. Why getting the text directly from Textbox is not working but getting it from the label that get the text from that textbox is ok?
Hi @Pwritch ,
I cannot replicate the issue as well. But generally speaking, we usually use Labels than Text Input boxes to display texts. Besides, the reason I assume is the Text input is inside a Data Card, sometimes we will not be able to retrieve the info that inside a Form. You may try and place the Label in the Data Card instead of the RequestNumber text input box and see if it will work, or use the workaround you have figured out in your App, and please consider your reply as the solution to help others find it.
