Is there an equivalent of a Return statement for PowerApps Formulas?

To avoid horrendously huge nested if statements, is there an equivalent of a Return statement to quickly jump out of a formula:



Notify("Please fill out all the required fields.");
// next statement - input fields all valid
Super User III
Super User III


There is not, but you might want to consider a slightly different design approach.  Rather than having a user hit a button to then be confronted with an error, instead perhaps disable the button until the form is completed.  Then there is no need for the complex logic (except in your DisplayMode property - which can be offset to another control).

Have your controls be more dynamic on the form to display the fact that they are required rather than have the user have to figure it out from an error message.

Just a thought...I hope it is helpful for you.

Hi @stapes ,


I don't believe there is an equivalent of a Return statement. Could you possibly use the Switch statement instead?

I have had to learn how to control the user experience within PowerApps available modifers:

(ie I will have a button that runs a flow, but i want to make sure that the data I am sending in the flow is ready.

  1.  I have an HTMLtext box that uses Concat to build an HTML document.
  2. I don't want the user to run the flow until my data is ready
  3. Within the Visible property I use expression "<!DOC" in MY_HTML_TEXT.HtmlText  when it is true, the button is visible, when it isn't true it is hidden.


Good luck crafting solution
