Open page after selecting an option (dropdown)

Hi all, 

 

I couldn't find a proper answer on the internet, so that's the reason I post it here.. 🙂 

Do you know if it's possible to launch a URL (to another SharePoint page), after I selected a value in the dropdown list. Each selection leads to a different page. I already made a cascading dropdown in Powerapps, but I don't know how I can refer/link them to specific pages.  

 

Maybe through a button? I found this, relevant, tutorial (I watched way more, but I couldn't find the answer to this specific question): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aXP48XECDc .

 

I hope you can help me out. 

Thanks in advance.

Assuming you have a dropdown with the values:

  • blank (no selection made)
  • Reddit
  • Facebook
  • Instagram

 

A general solution would be to use this code in the OnChange property of the dropdown.

Switch(
    Dropdown1.Selected.Value,
    "Reddit", Launch("https://reddit.com/"),
    "Facebook", Launch("https://facebook.com/"),
    "Instagram", Launch("https://instagram.com/")
)

Hi @mdevaney , 

Thank you very much for your quick response. 
Well it actually works, but the problem is that it doesn't work with cascading dropdowns. So, it works with a dropdown when it's a normal dropdown (with items in powerapps), but it doesn't work if the list is stored in SharePoint (and/or if it's a cascading dropdown). 

 

😞 any idea how I can fix this? 

Thanks in advance
