Make a button enter a value in a text field.

Hi Power App Community,


I have a request that should have a simple solution but I cannot figure out how to do it. 


I created a button and want that button to enter a value of 27 in a text input field. The text input field is later used in a calculation and I got that portion of it working. The text input field already has a number in there (6) and I want to replace that number with 27 every time I press this button. How do I do it using OnSelect? Any help is appreciated. 


Missing a semi-colon

Set(myCustomValue, 27);

I finally got it working. It was the DEFAULT field under ADVANCED tab and not under PROPERTIES that finally got that variable to register. Thanks for your help!
