Microsoft Translator V2

Trying to test out the translator in Powerapps. Got the old version working fine, but no matter what I use V2 in, text box label etc, it returns this error...

 

"Behavior function in a non-behavior property. You can't use this property to change values elsewhere in the app."

 

If anyone else has had an opportunity to test out the V2 translator and got it working can you share some of the syntax / methods you got it functioning with because as of now it looks to me just to not be working properly yet.

 

Here is the ms doc on the new v2, no code examples like the first one there.

Thanks everyone

I just played with it for a while using an old project I had.  The one thing I noticed is that they swapped out the parameter order on the Translate method.  In version 1 is was (Text, Language code).  Now its (Language code, Text).  That may be where your error is coming from.  Here's the formula that works for me.

Set(Var1, MicrosoftTranslatorV2.Translate(Picker.SelectedText.Code,English.Text))

This worked, thanks.
I had reversed the order already, but I am guessing perhaps it was because I had the code directly in a text box.

Changing it to a set var on a button with textbox assigned the var worked perfectly.
