How to turn a button visible=false or disabled=true?

I tried to make a button visible=true or disabled=false with the click of another button, but it does not work. Anybody with the same problem?


Hi Carlos,


I'm curious to know why as to why a variable is required in this instance? 


I've been trying to set the visibility of a camera control with something on long the lines the following within the OnSelect of an Icon


CameraControl.Visible = true


Now I'm having to introduce a variable where it would seem one is not required. 


I'm interested in what is happening under the hood of PowerApps - for interests sake 🙂

How can I use dot (.) in the formula? I try this scenario. I have two buttons and I want to disable button2 if i press button1.

On button1: OnSelect > fx button1.disabled: true

It not working - error syntax


I do it with UpdateContext with context variable. Is it possible to do it without context variable?

Not applicable

I want Edit button enable only for the user who created the record can only see Edit button

Hi, I am also having exact scenario for gallery. I have created Updatecontext ie., UpdateContext({visible:false}) and tried to bind visible context variable in to Gallery1.Visible:visible. But it is throwing error as shown in attached screenshot.

Could you please help me how to bind visible context variable to gallery1.visible propery. 


I have a doubt regarding this. If I press the button only then i need another button to be displayed otherwise it must be not visible. I tried the false condition but it is not working. Any solution?
