Set a OptionSetValue Variable with a button

Hi All,

I have a CDS Option Set Field called Site with Site A, Site B, Site C as the options.

In my app I have a dropdown with Items Choices('Source'.Site)

The OnChange sets a variable - "Set(GblSiteSelected, Dropdown1.Selected.Value)"

This gives me a Variable of the type "OptionSetValue"

This variable is used throught the app in filters, lookups, patch.

 

The end user now wants 3 x buttons instead of a dropdown to set the site.

Setting the variable as a String doesn't work as all my filters etc expect an OptionSetValue.

Any idea what formula to use in my OnSelect to update the variable with the site name?

Hi @RobH1 

You can accomplish this by looking up the value that you want to set, using the choices function as the data source.

For your 'Site A' button, the formula would look like this:

 

Set(GblSiteSelected, 
    LookUp(Choices('Source'.Site), Text(Value)="Site A").Value)
)

For your other two buttons, you would substitue "Site A" with "Site B" and "Site C".

Hi,  The dropdown I currently have is working but the end user wants to get rid of the dropdown and use buttons instead.  I need a button to set the variable. 

Try:
Button 1: Set(GbSiteA,"Site A")
Button 2: Set(GbSiteB,"Site B")
Button 3: Set(GbSiteC,"Site C")

Hi,  Unfortunately this doesn't solve the problem.  It needs to be one Variable and can't be a string.

I dont understand "It needs to be one Variable and can't be a string."

A variable can contain string or numbers or even boolean

Can you explain further

Hi,  Please have another look at my original post as it originally only posted half of the problem but has since been updated, it explains I need Variable type OptionSetValue.  Many thanks
