IF statement with two Variables

Hello,

         Could someone help me and tell me whats missing from my code.

 

I have 2 variables that are tied to the onVisible property of several elements. But i am having a problem getting the second variable to trigger.

 

I have a button that when clicked should set both variables to false even if one of them already is set to false. But what happens is that the first variable gets set to false and the second stays at true.

 

If(
   var1,false,
   var2,false
)

This code is set in the OnSelect property of a button. The desired outcome is to evaluate if the variable is true then set it to false. I was trying to see about using a elseIf function but from what i read this doesnt exisit in powerapps.

I.e 

 

If var1=true,updatecontext({var1:false})

elseIf

   var2=true,updatecontect({var2:false});

Re: IF statement with two Variables

@stephenJames 

After reading your post it is my understanding that both variables should be changed to False no matter what their current state is.  If that's the case, I don't believe there is any need for an IF statement.

 

Use this if var1 and var2 are global variables

Set(var1,false);Set(var2,false)

 

Or this if var1 and var2 are context variables

Updatecontext({var1:false, var2, false}
