IF condition using Not equal to <>

Hi,

I would like to disable a button if the text in TextInput1 is not equal to "Y".

I tried using: If(TextInput1.Text <> "Y" || TextInput1.Text <> "y", DisplayMode.Disabled, DisplayMode.Edit)

but it doesn't seem to work. How could I better approach this?

 

Thank you!

Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

If(!(Upper(TextInput1.Text) = "Y"), DisplayMode.Disabled, DisplayMode.Edit)

 

This converts to Upper so you only need one condition and it also performs a ! (Not) on it to give the inequality.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

🤣🤣 Oh my - Apparently I look at PowerApps formulas way too much.  When I first read your response I though..."Oh no, it's not working".   Why did I think this? Because I saw "! it worked"  My mind immediately took that as "NOT it worked".  Now I see that was the end of the first sentence!!

🤣😂

I am glad it worked for you!
