I am unsure how to explain this. I have 3 filter dropdowns filtering on a gallery. When the app starts I want the dropdowns to default to "ALL". I am populating the dropdowns with collections:
The onvisible for the main screen is:
AddColumns('Project and Status',"ProjectTypeText",Project_x0020_Type.Value,
I have the Onchange of each dropdown:
Customer_x0020_ID = drpCustomer.Selected.Result ||drpCustomer.Selected.Result = "All",
ProjectMgrText = drpProjectMgr.Selected.Result ||drpProjectMgr.Selected.Result = "All",
ProjectTypeText = DrpProjectType.Selected.Result ||DrpProjectType.Selected.Result = "All"
I also have the "default" = varAll and the "Items" =
Customer = Sort(colCustomer,Result)
Project Type = Sort(colProjectType,Result)
Project Lead = Sort(colProjectMgr,Result)
When i start the App, the default is never "All" and when i navigate back to the main page after setting them all to "All" it always defaults to the first selection not "All"
I have tried using the same script used on the on visible, in the on start. I have tried just putting the Set(varAll,"All") on navigations from other screens to the main. I am not coming up with anymore ideas. Have been trying all sorts of things.
Any help would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok, I've built a test app with this:
ClearCollect(types, Choices('Powered List'.Receipt_x0020_type)); Collect(types, "All")
I had a ComboBox so:
Since the "All" item was the last one on the list, it gets selected from the collection.
I hope this works.
First, next time place your code in a codeblock, this makes it easier to read.
Next, get rid off the DropDownbox and replaces them bij ComboBoxes. Disable the multiselect and optional the search parameter.
Then do this OnVisible:
ClearCollect(colProjects, AddColumns('Project and Status',"ProjectTypeText",Project_x0020_Type.Value,"ProjectMgrText", Project_x0020_Manager.DisplayName)); ClearCollect(colProjectType,Distinct(colProjects,ProjectTypeText)); ClearCollect(colProjectMgr,Distinct(colProjects,ProjectMgrText)); ClearCollect(colCustomer,Distinct(colProjects,Customer_x0020_ID)); ClearCollect(colFilterProjects,colProjects); Set(varAll,"All")
Default the Combobox will be empty and you can use the Searchtext to tell please what to do (On this moment when search is enabled, but I post the idea for a hinttext on this control.)
Then on the controls do like this:
(IsBlank(drpCustomer.Selected.Result) || Customer_x0020_ID = drpCustomer.Selected.Result),
(IsBlank(drpProjectMgr.Selected.Result) || ProjectMgrText = drpProjectMgr.Selected.Result)
// (IsBlank(DrpProjectType.Selected.Result) || ProjectTypeText = DrpProjectType.Selected.Result)
//Don't put in a line for the combobox itself
You must remove the line which states the combobox itselfs (so with 3 controls you get 2 lines). The IsBlank() will be true when the combobox is empty, so basically when both comboboxes are empty the first condition in a line will be true.
Maybe you should add a reset() formula also to reset specific boxes on selection, mostly this you will do from the first combo (for the second and third) and the second combo (for the third).
Use the same IsBlank() formula for filtering your gallery (if you use one) and it should work.
Hope this helps.
