Navigate Variable Context

Hello All,

 

I have a welcome screen where i have a textbox and a few buttons with OnSelect and Navigate functions. For the Navigate function, it works fine and sends me to the right spot. But I'd like it to chose a specific option from a dropdown screen in the following form. If I could lock that dropdown, that would be even better. 

 

If(TextInput1.Text="Password",Navigate(EditScreen,ScreenTransition.None,{DataCardValue1: "Option1"}))

 

This is what I currently have for OnSelect, but it doesn't pick the option from the dropdown, it just navigates to the form and disregards the last portion of the formula.

The second part of the navigation command is used to define the navigation context (variables that are going to be defined in the target screen)

 

what we need to do is connect this variable to the default value of the dropdown control.

 

so the onSelect formula can be something like this

 

Button1.OnSelect = 
If( TextInput1.Text="Password",
Navigate(EditScreen,ScreenTransition.None, {DefaultValue: "Option1"}))

and the DropDown.Default should be something like this

 

Dropdown1.Default = DefaultValue

The welcome screen will have 5 buttons with seperate passwords that send them to the same screen with the dropdown choice picked. So I don't think the default value will work in this instance. 

you can send multiple values in the navigation context

 

Button1.OnSelect = 
If( TextInput1.Text="Password",
Navigate(EditScreen,ScreenTransition.None, {Value1: "Option1", Value2: "Option2"}))

How would you set 5 seperate default values for the dropdown and make sure it choses the right one depending on the button clicked on the welcome screen?

Every button will have a different onSelect forumula

 

Button1

Button1.OnSelect = 
If( TextInput1.Text="Password",
Navigate(EditScreen,ScreenTransition.None, {Value1: "Selected", Value2: "default"}))

 

Button2

Button2.OnSelect = 
If( TextInput1.Text="Password",
Navigate(EditScreen,ScreenTransition.None, {Value1: "default", Value2: "Selected"}))

 

 

Dropdown1 will use Value1 as the default property value, Dropdowwn1 will use Value2 as the default property value
