Need help with patch multiple updates in gallery

Hi

I have data from O365 dynamics DS. I have built a gallery with textinput boxes to allow editing values.

 

Everything works except updating records, i've tried patch command here is my code:

 

Patch('DS',ForAll(Gallery2.AllItems,{,ds_field1:[@TextInput1],ds_field2:[@TextInput2]}))

 

the code runs and i see the dots but no update and no error

 

also what i'm not sure about is how does patch know which row to update, do i need to pass in a guid for the row ?

 

essentialy i have two textboxes in the gallery and one is numeric which needs to be updated

 

thanks for taking a look

Re: Need help with patch multiple updates in gallery

ok so this was the final code. a huge shoutout to @Meneghino for going the super extra mile over skype to help get this working he really knows his stuff !!

 

Patch('Data source', Gallery2.AllItems, AddColumns(DropColumns(Gallery2.AllItems, "columntoedit"),"columntoedit", Value(TextInputX.Text)))

 

works pretty fast too.

Re: Need help with patch multiple updates in gallery

Hi @Sketro

Please try this and let me know:

ForAll(Gallery2.AllItems, Patch('DS',{ID:ID},{ds_field1:TextInput1.Text,ds_field2:TextInput2.Text}))

The ID should be your primary key field, assuming that only one field participates in the primary key.

 

Once you get this to work, I can provide more efficient code.

 

PS Just re-read your post and you mention something about a numeric field, so for that one you need this:

Value(TextInputX.Text)

@Meneghinothanks for the quick reply, 50% there, but now all values update to the same amount when i update a single cell. must be passing the wrong id somewhere.
