Pass information from a screen to another

Hello again,

New question - Is there any way to pass a value from a screen to another?

What I need to do is on first screen to select my team number form a drop down box and then navigate to a browse screen to display jobs allocated for that team.

Tables like that:

Teams: TeamID, TeamNo, TeamName

Jobs: JobID, TeamID, JobNo, JobDescription.

Re: Pass information from a screen to another



WHen you are using NewForm() and Submit(), these are ALL the Standards Practice.

In Jan 2016 ~ Apr 2016, there are Tutotial about using Context Variable.

Let me share with you to use Navigate(Screen1, Transition, {VarX: ThisItem})

VarX will be carried to next screen for the selected : "ThisItem" or selected items using TablxTeams.TeamID, etc.

This VarX becomes a global variable.

(UpdateContext will only generate LOCAL variable to the screen you resie in).


Hope it helps.

Re: Pass information from a screen to another

Hi LucianB,


My app is based on SharePoint list. Below is my SharePoint list.

teams and jobs.PNG


In the app, I add two screens, and connect data source to the SharePoint list.
On Screen1, I add a Dropdown box and set it Items property to the data source ‘teams and jobs’. Then add a button and set its Onselect property as Navigate(Screen2,ScreenTransition.Fade,{Number: Dropdown1.Selected.TeamNo})
On Screen2, add a gallery control, then set its Items property as Filter('teams and jobs',TeamNo=Number). As not all the columns can be shown on the gallery, I add several Text box controls in the gallery to show all the items.


Then when I select a TeamNo from the Dropdown list, click the button, I would be navigated to Screen2, and only the according information allocated for that team would be shown on the Screen2.


Hope this can also be a reference for you.


For more details please refer to this article about Navigate function:
