Preface: I'm pretty new to PowerApps. I have a gallery that is linked to a SharePoint List. I want to be able to search across all fields with one search box. I can get it working when searching for 1 field but when I try to modify it to search across multiple fields, it breaks.
SP Online List Name: Data Stewards
Fields: Area, Steward Name, Type of Steward
Working function when searching across 1 field: SortByColumns(Filter([@'Data Stewards'], StartsWith(Title, TextSearchBox1.Text)), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))
What modifications need to be made to the above function to be able to use 1 search box and search across all 3 fields?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I appreciate everyone's feedback/suggestions. I got it working withe name field but when I try with Type or Business Area, it says that the type is unsupported for evaluation. All 3 of these fields are single lines of text in the SharePoint list.
Update - Just got this working. Apparently I was choosing the wrong field.
Hi, I am unsure of how to combine two search functions together. For instance, I have
Search('PC',txtRF.Text, "and the column name")
Search('PC',txtPF.Text, "and the column name")
They both work individually but, I am unsure how to combine both of them.
how would I go about with two different text boxes with two different columns? So I want a search for RF which is one filter and then another text box for PF so it is another filter box. I don't want to combine them into the same box.
@kendallsmith I haven't nested searches, but I know you can nest Filters. Here's an example:
I'd simply add "OR" with more "StartsWith" columns, noting that if the columns have multiple words and spaces to use apostrophes (see 3rd example column):
Or StartsWith('Steward Name', TextSearchBox1.Text)
Or StartsWith('Type of Steward', TextSearchBox1.Text)
), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))
Note: I left "Title" as the SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending, but that could be changed to a different column.
