Search for a number within a label?


  • Gallery with a multiline label (lblDuration)
  • Sample lblDuration text:
    • "This REST service took 50 seconds to execute."
  • I'd like to set lblDuration Fill based on the number found in the text
  • Something like: If(Find(lblDuration, > Value("10")), Red, LightGray)
    • Which would highlight lblDuration if there is a number greater than 10 found in the text.

The above sample using Find() doesn't work. Neither does Search().
Any other ideas?
THank you!


Is there a max number of digits after the decimal?

I have not enforced a certain number of digits after the decimal, but could if its easiest.

So say if the only two formats allowed are whole number or with one decimal place, you could use something like: 


If(Value(Match(Label28.Text, (Digit & "\." & Digit)).FullMatch)>3 || Value(Match(Label28.Text, "\d+").FullMatch)>3, Red, Gray)


Here is a demo: 




You can easily factor in other formats if needed, like 2 decimal places or even 3 by adding more OR conditions. 


Let me know if this helps.

Nice job @PowerAddict. I learned something new by reviewing your post. Your technique for regex is slightly different than what I am used to in a neat way!

Thanks @mdevaney!
