Patch all items in Gallery

 

PowerApps2.JPGI don't know if this is possible. I've seen other posts online of people exploring saving things in a Gallery but i'm not sure if my specific setting will work. Basically I have a Gallery that shows the "astID" field of a Collection and a textbox that shows the "astExplanation" field from the same collection. I want the user to be able to fill in the textboxes then click Save and have all the records in the gallery patched or updated with the new data. This is what I currently have on the Save button. I don't have any errors but it doesn't work. Nothing happens when clicked. 

 

ForAll(Gallery3.AllItems, Patch(tblInvenTemp, {astID: Label34.Text},{astExplanation:TextInput3.Text}))

And I know I should rename the label and textbox.

You have to get the record to Patch, probably through a Lookup. The real question is if there's a way to get the underlying record without using a Lookup, since it is there anyway in the gallery, just moxed up with everything else.

 

I have a similar problem with my app last week, and I solved it by creating an alias for the ID-column. You can read my fix here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Patch-problem-worked-before-now-it-doesn-t/m-...

 

God luck!

Hi @Blinkorta

 

I am not sure why it does not work. Does it give you any error in the Button.OnSelect?

 

It might be that your Patch second argument is incorrectly selecting a record, what if you tried this function:

 

ForAll(
    Gallery3.AllItems,
    Patch(
        tblInvenTemp,
        LookUp(tblInvenTemp,astID = Label34.Text),
        {
            astExplanation:TextInput3.Text
        }
    )
)

 

I don't have any errors on the button. I tried your code, same result. No errors but it also doesn't do anything.

Did you manage to get this working in the end? I am trying to do a similar thing where I have managed toget it to work through a flow but I'd much rather the patch work.

How are you putting the astID into Label34? If you are using "ThisItem." then I would test your ForAll Patch with:

ForAll(Gallery3.AllItems, Patch(tblInvenTemp, {astID: ThisItem.astID},{astExplanation:TextInput3.Text}))

or just:

 

ForAll(Gallery3.AllItems, Patch(tblInvenTemp, {astID: astID},{astExplanation:TextInput3.Text}))

 

I actually use exactly what you are doing in a few spots and it works great in our case by just saying "Field:Field" for the record and it just works.

If you are trying to save to the Collection, Change "Patch" to "Collect" 

 

Hi, Collect is not working for me.could you please suggest. I have created a Powerapps forms that shows all questions  with Textboxes (inserted beside question) as gallery, and I am trying to save user entered responses in Tetboxes to other SPList.Could you please suggest.

Hi @Blinkorta 
Hi @srevoju 

Have you found your solution?
Can you please share what is the solution?
And, what formula function you actually use to solved the issue?

Thanks.

I just got this to work. I am using COLLECT, not PATCH.

 

To the left is my gallery. To the right is a data table that shows the contents of of the collection: colOrderList.

 

20191104 10_49_46-Biker Orders using ForAll - Saved (Unpublished) - PowerApps.png

The Collect button has the following code:

 

ForAll(
    galOrderQuantity.AllItems,
    Collect(
        colOrderList,
        {
            Item: lblItemNumber.Text,
            Quantity: Value(txtOrderQuantity.Text)
        }
    )
)

 

lblItemNumber is the field in the gallery with the item number, and txtOrderQuantity is the field in the gallery that they fill in with the quantities.
