Run Button for OnStart in the ribbon

Hello,

 

I saw in the PowerApps ideas site that a 'Run button for OnStart' was added to the ribbon. While I have found it, I expected being able to click it in order to run the OnStart function, however that does not seem to be working for me?

Is this working for others?

Re: Run Button for OnStart in the ribbon

Hi @Anonymous,

 

If you need a button to trigger the OnStart property, then it's actually not OnStart. It's just the same thing as the OnSelect property does of the button control.

 

Whatever you want to achieve on the OnStart after selecting a button, you could achieve this by setting on OnSelect property of the Button directly.

 

Regards,

Re: Run Button for OnStart in the ribbon

Hi  

 

No sorry I think you misunderstood. I know how the OnStart function works as well as the OnSelect function for buttons.

Let me give you an example:

 

OnStart:  ClearCollect(Collection, Datasource)

-> After OnStart is completed, app screen displays collection data in a gallery.

 

If I click 'preview' within PowerApps the OnStart function does not actually run. Therefore, in order to 'preview' properly including the OnStart function I create a button I can click that replicates the OnStart function in preview.

 

When I saw this 'idea' implemented I expected that the OnStart ribbon action allows me to click it and run the OnStart function - eliminating the need to replicate this using a button.

 

I hope this makes sense..
