Radio Control Display

I have a radio control that is getting its items from a SharePoint list.  I have an additional column of data that I need to display next to the radio control items.   Each item in the column goes along with one of the radio control items but should not be part of it's title or value.

 

This information needs to be consumed from the list so it is editable without having to modify the app directly.   Here is an image of what I am trying to accomplish (converting an InfoPath form).   It was hard coded into the InfoPath form but we want to get away from that.

Any suggestions to accomplish this will be welcome.

If you want to display boths fields, OnVisible of the screen, create a collection:

ClearCollect(nnnn,AddColumns(YourList,"JoinedColumns",Concatenate(ColumnToJoin1," ",ColumnToJoin2)))
 
Then on the Radio, use the collection on the Items of the Radio with the JoinedColumn:
YourList.JoinedColumns

Hi @JR-BejeweledOne 

Assuming that you have have a SharePoint list with the Title and Description columns, you could put a pencil icon on the screen and set it's OnSelect property to UpdateContext({showdesc:true}) and its Visible property to !showdesc. Put a TextInput control on the screen and set its Default property to Radio1.Selected.Description.  Put a check icon on the field and set its OnSelect property as Patch(YourList, ID=Radio1.Selected.ID,{Description:TextInput1.Text}) and its visible property to !showdesc.  Set the Visible property of the TextInput and check icon as showdesc. The list shown in the highlighted label is and the Char(10) is used to space the items to match the radio control.

 

 

Concatenate(LookUp(FakeNames,state="GA",company_name),Char(10),Char(10),LookUp(FakeNames,state="WY",company_name),Char(10),Char(10),LookUp(FakeNames,state="WI",company_name),Char(10),Char(10),LookUp(FakeNames,state="WA",company_name),Char(10),Char(10),LookUp(FakeNames,state="VA",company_name))

The result is that the pencil icon unhides the check icon and the TextInput controls.  Following the Patch() function you could put ;UpdateContext({showdesc:false}) and the pencil icon will become visible and the textbox and check icon will be hidden. 

Not exactly what I am looking for.   I don't need to patch the description to anything, but it needs to be there so the person making the selection in the Radio control, has the 'definition' of what they are selecting.    So it needs to be visible up front without having to click anything but it also needs to be editable without having to modify the form. 

 

I think I can do it in a Combo box, but I don't know if I want to go that route.
