Re: Powerapps BInding to dropdown control?

Hi,

I want to use a dropdown control that gives me a possibility to choose a project:

  • I have to sharepointtable: project and timesheet. The powerapp is meant to let our consultants fill the timesheet with their tasks
  • ID is the number of the projects (in table project) and must be saved in the ContractID of the table timesheet
  • to give them more contextinformation I filled the dropdown with additional data: Distinct(TblProject;ID&" "&KP&" "&Title&" "&Subject) in the items section of the control
  • default section: parent.default

Now the card where I have put the dropdown control in is not using the data in the dropdown. I don't know where i can link them. I follow the tips on this discussion but it didn't work out. The dropdown just shows the complete list and always starts with the first item in the list, while it should show the project that was selected.

 

2nd question: I want to sort the dropdown list: Title-KP, can this be done in the formula?

Thanks for your advice and ideas.

Re: Powerapps BInding to dropdown control?

When I go to the Update and fill in step 5 as described below I get errors.  It does not seem to understand the *.Select.Value syntax when I enter the information as described.  I have followed the steps 1 - 3.  I think Step 4 states to select the card bubble for the drop down.  I select it and find Update, but when I go to fill card.name.Selected.value instead of datacardvalue#.Selected  and it errors out.  Any thoughts?

@Anonymous maybe create a new thread? I would like to point you in the right direction but I am confused what you are trying to do and where you are having issues. I have a bunch of videos that show you how to do this type of stuff but I can't even figure out which one to send you.

I am new to powerapps (07/2018), and I found this solution helped to resolve a simular problem that I encountered moving data from a drop down list in a form, to a data source table. Thank you.

Setting Update to Dropdown1.Selected.Value or Dropdown1.Selected.Text or Dropdown1.SelectedText or Dropdown1.Selected does not work.

 

I get an error "Expected Text Value"
