Powerapps is linked to a SharePoint Online list
Combo box 1: Asset Type (2 options): IT Asset, Non IT Asset
If this box is set to "IT Asset" I need it to:
Combo Box 2: 1st level Approver ( 9 options): IT Director, Manager, Local Controller, General Manager, Field Controller, Regional Controller, CFO, CEO, BoD: This needs to be set to first option (IT Director) and gray out (disable)
Combo Box3: Approval (Person Field from SharePoint); Set to name of IT director and gray out (disable)
Any and all assistance to accomplish this would be helpful!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I finally got this working:
Combo box 1: Set OnSelect to: Set(varAssetType,ComboBox1.Selected.Value)
Combo box 2: Set DefaultSelectedItems to: f(ComboBox1.Selected.Value ="IT Asset",(Filter(Choices(ListName.ComboBox2),Value="IT Director")))
Combo box 3: Set DefaultSelectedItems to: If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value ="IT Asset",
Then on the DisplayMode of both the data cards for Combo Box 2 and Combo Box 3 to: If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value ="IT Asset",Disabled,Edit)
Hopefully this can help someone else!
You would just use an If statement for this...
So..if you want it to default the value on Combo Box 2 off Combo Box 1 then the Default Value for Combox box 2 would be = If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value="IT Asset","IT Director") -- this will say if they select IT Asset for ComboBox1 then make the Default for Combo Box 2 "IT Director"
You would do the same If statement with a variation for making it disabled...
If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value="IT Asset",Disabled, Edit) -- This would go on the DisplayMode for ComboBox 2
Just make sure to remember that when you put a default for a combo box it goes on the DefaultSelectedItems....not the regular Default
@rebeccas I would like this as a solution but your default formula is not working "The property expects Record values but this rule produces incompatible text values." there is no else part of this statement.
If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value= "IT Asset","IT Director") if it is false I would like it to be blank but I cannot seem to get it in the formula.
Okay, sorry...it is because I told you wrong it isn't working...I had to go pull up one of my old ones to get it right...thought I could right off...but I was wrong.
If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value="IT Asset", (Filter(Choices(SPListName.Column2Name),Value="IT Director")))
You don't have to tell it anything special to make it blank if not...it will be. Let me know if this doesn't work for you.
I got this working on Combo box 1 and 2 but how do I get this working on combo box 3 (person field from sharepoint)? I want it to, If IT Asset, default the people combo box to user John doe. Any thoughts on how to do this?
Thanks for your quick assistance!
So, I think it would be this:
If(ComboBox1.Selected.Value="IT Asset", (Filter(Choices(SPListName.PeopleColumn),Value="John Doe")))
If that doesn't work let me know and I will click over and test it to see what needs to be different but I think it is right.
Here is an image of my screen: When combox box 2 (1st level Approver) is set to It director I want to Approval Name field below to be set to "John Doe" and be grayed out.
If(DcdAssetTypeV.Selected.Value ="IT Asset",(Filter(Choices(CAPEX.'1stApprover'),Value="John Doe")))
This did not work and when I changed the column to the people column (Approval1 which is different from 1stApprover) the formula errors out.
