NEW FEATURE: Depends On

Last night around 7pm I was trying to create my first Cascading Dropdown and I was following Shane Young's tutorial and then suddenly an progress I had made stopped working. I trouble shot it for hours but to no avail. This morning I see an update was pushed:

 

When clicking on a field the Depends On option is now there. Does anyone know how to use this and is this the new way of creating cascading dropdowns? Any tutorials?

Re: NEW FEATURE: Depends On

I was about to create a post about this asking the same question but I saw your post first.

 

I've had a look though, and it basically allows you to generate an Items statement.

 

I.E selecting the following options

Changes the Items property to

Filter('[dbo].[WellbeingSessions]', TypeID = Drp_SessionTypeFilter_1.Selected.ID)

A handy feature for new users who are having trouble writing a Filter statement but it has a few issues as far as I can see.

  • Only allows selections of Data Sources, so collections etc. don't appear.
  • Only allows Filtering on one data value.

As a starter for people new to PowerApps its useful but you can totally ignore it for writing your queries.

 

Thanks,

Nicky

Re: NEW FEATURE: Depends On

I was excited til I discovered that Collection is not supported,

Since my app needs offline capability, most data is stored in "collections"
