Icon Patch +1 to SP List

I think I'm making this more complicated than it really is. I would like to have a + icon OnSelect = Patch( to add one to a SP list item. The Icon is not in a form or gallery so I'm struggling with how to get the specific record and then patch a plus one to it. I can filter or lookup a specific record based on a couple text boxes I was trying something like this but it wasn't working.

 

Patch(LookUp('Leader Standard Work',Weeks&'Name ({Name})'=TextInput1_1.Text&TextInput1.Text),{VarViz:+1}) but that clearly doesn't work. Can this be done?

 

Thanks

You are on the right track.  First, you need to create a Lookup that will bring back a specific record. Work on that first.  Once you have the lookup working then you just need to do the patch as you are, with a couple changes.

1) You need to patch all the required fields in addition to VarViz.  For example, Title: is a requried field in SharePoint so you'll need to patch that too.

2) You need to use the current value of the field when you add 1 to it.

 

So your code would look something like this.

Set(recordvalue, Lookup(datasource, criteria));
Patch(datasource, recordvalue, {Title: recordvalue.Title, FieldtoIncrement: recordvalue.FieldtoIncrement +1})

So there is no way to patch only the one field of the item? My items have a lot of fields that I am wanting to patch individually.

You don't have to patch all the fields, just all the required fields plus whichever field you want to patch.  Patch will fail if required fields are not included.  In the sample code I'm only patching the Title field and the field you want to increment.
