The task is to Run a Screen named ConfigurationScreen if 

  • SettingName InitialWizardCompleted

If(

SettingValue.InitialWizardCompleted="0", Did not work

 

Settings, LookUp( Settings, SettingValue= "InitialWizardCompleted" ), { SettingValue: "0" } Did not work

 

IF TRUE

Navigate(ConfigurationScreen),

IF FALSE

Navigate(MainScreen))

 

Please help me.

Navigation in the OnStart is not supported any longer.  This needs to be done in the StartScreen.

When you say "still the same" can you describe what is the same?

You will want to do this in the StartScreen property of the app instead of the OnStart.

The formula should be:

If(Coalesce(LookUp(Settings, SettingValue= "InitialWizardCompleted", SettingValue), 0) = 0,
    ConfigurationScreen,
    MainScreen
)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

The system takes the FX, but tried it on StartScreen as you suggested and OnStart - still the same.

Ok, understood why not to use OnStart - EOL. 

The Configuration screen still does not come up as before, but SQL database InitialWizardCompleted is set to zero

I updated table by running: 

UPDATE Settings
Set SettingValue= '0'
WHERE SettingName = 'InitialWizardCompleted'

 

Could it be that I insert text value and the IF statement is looking for a number?

Your command worked when I changed a SettingValue to SettingName

 

If(Coalesce(LookUp(Settings, SettingValue= "InitialWizardCompleted", SettingValue), 0) = 0,
    ConfigurationScreen,
    MainScreen
)
