How to set "Text" property of Label to actual Error message (instead of default Label.Text=Parent.Error) in CustomDataCard under custom DataCardValue

I added a custom DataCardValue (say combobox) inside CustomDataCard and copied the original ErrorMessage under my DataCardValue
Snap 2021-03-31 at 01.54.09.png

 

I tried to set Text property with following but didn't work 

 

 

Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem.Priority)

 

 

 

Also I have 2 DataCardValue elements in my custom DataCard as shown in snap

Since it returns a table you may have to use First() to get the first record.

if(First(Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Column = "Priority",first(Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Message)

Hi @akg1421 ,

 

Please use this formula in the label control:

If(!IsBlank(Parent.Error),"your particular error message")

If you use the patch() function you could use the errors() function.

So, if you use submitform() to submit data, please use my above formula.

@v-xiaochen-msft I do not want to use custom error msg, only want to use "Parent.Error"

 

Why would I use: If(!IsBlank(Parent.Error),"your particular error message")

 

There is no point in checking if "Parent" is blank because parent, in my case, is a Custom Data Card containing two Data Card Values i.e. Priority & Save as Draft. I merely copied the error message Labels from original Data cards to my custom data card (which houses these 2 controls). Now my question is, How do I enable these custom labels to enact as the the original error message labels? Original label has property set as "Text = Parent.Error"

The parameters for the errors() function are the data source and the record producing the error.  That returns a table of information.  So I think what you want is something like this

if((Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Column = "Priority",(Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Message)

@Pstork1 It gives error: "Expected text value"
Tried using 

If((Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Column='Priority',Text((Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Message))

Now the error is "...function text has some invalid arguments"

Also tried: 

If((Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Column=ThisItem.Priority,(Errors('Issues Tracking',ThisItem)).Message)

"Expected text value"

@Pstork1 Hoping it works!

@Pstork1 What if I need to show all messages newline separated?

For that it would be better to use a data table rather than a label.  Then you can just set the items of the data table to the error()
