Radio Buttons Reset when button is clicked

Capture.PNGCapture2.PNG

The first picture shows when you enter the star is black. If you make a radio button selection and then hit the comment button or the > character to the right then the radio button resets and the star turns the color associated with the radio button. How do I stop this from happening. This is the code for the star If(Radio1.Selected.Value = "Works", Green, Radio1.Selected.Value = "Has issues", Yellow, Radio1.Selected.Value = "Does not work", Red). This is the submit button code Navigate(Success, Fade); ForAll(BrowseGallery1.AllItems, Patch('UAT Radio', Defaults('UAT Radio'), {Title:Name, Answer: Radio1.Selected.Value,Namee:User().FullName, Date:Today(), Country:(First(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:User().Email}).Country).Country)})).

Re: Radio Buttons Reset when button is clicked

Hi @powerapps890 ,

Do you want to prevent the Radio button from being reset?

Could you please show more details about the formula you typed within the "Comment" button and the ">" icon?

 

Have you type some Reset(Radio1) formula within the "Comment" button or the ">" icon? Have you modified records in your 'UAT Radio' when press the "Comment" button or the ">" icon?

 

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and do not have the issue that you mentioned. When I press the "Comment" button or the ">" icon, the Radio1 control would not be reset, unless, I type the Reset(Radio1) formula within the "Comment" button or the ">" icon, or type some Patch formula to update records in my data source the Gallery connected to.

 

As an fixed solution, you could consider store the answered item into a collection when you press the "Comment" button or the ">" icon. Then set the Default value for the Radio control based on the Question Name against the saved collection.

 

I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Set the OnSelect property of the "Comment" button and the ">" icon to following:

If(
   Not(ThisItem.Name in TempCollection.Title),
   Collect(
           TempCollection,
           {
               Title: Name, 
               Answer: Radio1.Selected.Value,
               Namee: User().FullName, 
               Date: Today(), 
               Country: First(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm: User().Email})).Country
           }
   ),
   Patch(
         TempCollection,
         LookUp(TempCollection, Title = ThisItem.Name),
         {
            Answer: Radio1.Selected.Value
         }
   )
)

Set the Default property of the Radio control to following:

LookUp(TempCollection, Title = ThisItem.Name).Answer

 

Then modify formula within your "Submit" button to following:

ForAll(
       TempCollection, 
       Patch(
              'UAT Radio', 
              Defaults('UAT Radio'), 
              {
                Title: TempCollection[@Title], 
                Answer: TempCollection[@Answer],
                Namee: TempCollection[@Namee], 
                Date: TempCollection[@Date],
                Country: TempCollection[@Country]
             }
      )
)

 

Set the Fill property of the Star Icon to following:

If(
   !IsBlank(LookUp(TempCollection, Title = ThisItem.Name)),
   Switch(
          LookUp(TempCollection, Title = ThisItem.Name).Answer,
          "Works", Green,
          "Has issues", Yellow,
          "Does not work", Red
   )
)

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Re: Radio Buttons Reset when is button clicked

From what I know, when you have a control in a gallery that isn't linked to a field or isn't saved back to the data source when selected, the control will just reset when you leave the screen and come back.

 

I would put in the OnChange property of the radio control a patch formula that will save the selected option back to the data source of the gallery. That way, the selected option is saved and that should fix the problem. For example, in the OnChange property you could put: Patch('UAT Radio',ThisItem,{Answer:Value:Radio1.Selected.Value})

 

I'm not sure if that would match what you have in the gallery, but you will need to save what you've selected in the radio button for it to work correctly. 

 

I hope that helps! Please let me know if that didn't work or didn't make sense and I'd be glad to help.

Re: Radio Buttons Reset when is button clicked

ThisItem is giving me an error. This is the code I had for onSelect in the Radio button before Patch('UAT Radio', Defaults('UAT Radio'), { Answer: Radio1.Selected.Value}). But it would patch every value on the click of one radio button leaving one selected and the rest blank in the sharepoint this. Since its all connected how do I patch in just the button that was selected.

Re: Radio Buttons Reset when is button clicked

Humm..That's interesting. To patch on just the button that is selected, I would put the patch formula on the OnChange property of the radio button instead of the OnSelect. That way, whenever the radio button is changed instead of just selected will the patch formula run.

 

But, what is the items property of the gallery? In the patch formula, set the data source to whatever the data source of the gallery is, then the "ThisItem" part of the formula I suggested should hopefully work. So, for example: Patch(YourGalleryDataSource,ThisItem,{Answer:Radio1.Selected.Value})

 

And try putting that in the OnChange property instead of the OnSelect. I'm thinking that should make it work! If not, we can keep trying haha. Let me know what happens!

Re: Radio Buttons Reset when is button clicked

I couldnt quite get you, but based on what i think i understand, you need a variable to hold the each record at each time,
On the comment Button OnSelect property, 

Set (VarRecord,ThisItem)//make sure the radio button is referenced properly in the datasource where the record is being patched

 Then, on the Star icon color property

If(Radio1.Selected.Value = "Works", Green, Radio1.Selected.Value = "Has issues", Yellow, Radio1.Selected.Value = "Does not work", Red). // if Selected is not working try SelectedText.Value

 Let me know if i can help  further...

Re: Radio Buttons Reset when is button clicked

Oh okay, I think that what someone else posted on here is on the right track. Is there a way you could collect the records, and then have that collection in the gallery instead of your other datasource? Then, when you use the patch function, you're just patching to the collection. Then, when you hit submit, you could : Collect(DataSource,Collection) to submit all the records in the gallery? Does that make sense?
