Patch An unknown error occurred

I am following the tutorial by Michael Blythe called The Power of SharePoint and am running into the following issue.


I have a button with the following OnSelect


Patch(ProjectDetails, LookUp(ProjectDetails, ID=Gallery1.Selected.ID), {PMAssigned:TextInput1})



When i click the button, i get feedback that something has occurred, however the SP list item is unchanged.




 If you hover over the highlighet elements, it just says an unknown error has occurred. I have validated that the correct names for the gallery and textbox and button all have the correct names being referrenced.


An unknown error has occured.


Can you help? Also, What are some good ways to debug an app?


I attempted to show the values... and also renamed teh gallery to see if that would help.




Now i feel stupid. i figured out the issue. 

Patch(ProjectDetails, LookUp(ProjectDetails, ID=Gallery1_1.Selected.ID), {PMAssigned:TextInput1.Text})
i was missing .Text after TextInput1
Thanks for your help everyone.
