Reset Date in Datepicker (in a form) with Button

My app shows the date at which a client was invoiced inside a date picker on a form and that date is stored in a Sharepoint list.

 

I would like to have a button that resets the datepicker to a blank value.

 

Thank you!

Hi @zalandoe ,

 

You have to add a Reset button in the DatePicker DateCard, if you want to only reset the datepicker control instead of the whole form.

And please refer to the following steps

1. Unlock the DatePicker DateCard, and Add a button named Rest in it.

2. Set OnSelect property of button as below

UpdateContext({resetdate:true});Reset(DataCardValue1)

3. Set DefaultDate property of DatePicker as below

If(resetdate,Blank(),Parent.Default)

4. Set OnSuccess, OnRest, OnFailure property as below to causes the default value to be displayed the next time the form is opened

UpdateContext({resetdate:false})

Once click the reset button, the DatePicker would return blank value.

If you also want to update the Blank value of DatePicker to sharepoint list, you also need to turn on a New Feature setting: Formula-level error management

You can find it from File – App Setting – Advanced Setting – Formula-level error management.

Hi,

This works as explained in my test App (to test the reset) but when I copied the code over to my production App I started to get really odd behaviour.

 

After spending several hours trying to figure out why my production App failed I found that enabling "Formula-level error management" kills your connection to Flow (I use Flow to pull data from a stored procedure on Azure SQL database).

 

Not sure if there is a fix for this - anyone had the same problem and fixed it?

 

If not it looks like I'll need build a separate app just to clear dates (back to NULL).

Hi @v-siky-msft ,

 

I have followed your guidance on this poste, and at first it appears as though this solution works. 

 

Then I noticed that each reset button I created on my form will delete all of the date on all of the datepickers within the form. 

 

In the OnSelect field for each button I added, I made sure I identified only the datacardvalueX pertaining to the datepicker I want each separate button to reset. I assumed that would ensure that one button only resets the date to the assigned datepicker. This is not the case. Unfortunately it deletes all dates.

 

Would you know the solution to this?

 

Thanks

Hello @v-siky-msft ,

 

When using multiple reset buttons on a single form with multiple date pickers, how do you follow your solution and prevent any one button from deleting the date on all of the date pickers?

 

Thank you.

 

Aaron
