Set a text field value pressing a button on SharePoint list form



I would like to set a text field value on pressing a button. Once the value is set, the button's display mode should also be set to "disabled".


I tried several solutions using patch, updatecontext, Button rules etc that are already posted on the forums but none of them really work. Can anyone help me with right steps to accomplish this?

Hi @cooltechie 


On click of the button


Reset(TextInputControlName); Set(varTextValue,"your value");Set(varMode,Disabled)


for Text Input Control set default property to varTextValue

for button mode property set value to varMode


On visible of the screen Set(varMode,Edit ) - to reactivate the button

Hi Reza,


Thank you for your reply. However, I have following questions:


in the Reset(TextInputcontrolName) should the text input contro name be the DataCardValuexx  or display name of the SharePoint list field?


Also, I do not want to reactivate the button once the textfield value is set to "Yes".


Please advise,

Hi @cooltechie 


that would be the name of the datecardcontrol for text field

also, On clicking the button, any other changes made on the form should also be saved. Should I include


Submitform(SharePointForm1) as well?

DataCardControl or DataCardControlValue?

Hi @cooltechie ,

Do you want to update a text field value by clicking a button and then make the button disabled?

Could you tell me what control that you want to use to update this value?

I assume that you use a textinput control to update this value, so I use "controlname.Text" to represent value.

If so, I suggest you set the button's OnSelect:

//LookUp(tablename,....) means that the item that you want to update

Set the button's DisplayMode:


Please replace tablename,fieldname, controlname with the names that you use. 



Best regards,

I am doing this on a PowerApps form that is based on a SharePoint list. In that case, how should I modify the code below?


//LookUp(tablename,....) means that the item that you want to update

Set the button's DisplayMode:
