Set text field with a value using a button (OnSelect)

Hi All,

 

Happy 2020 !!

 

I have a very simple question here, I need to be able to click on a button that will set a "Single Line of Text" field with a value.

 

I am using currently a variable to update the text field but the problem when I open again the form the text field is blank since the variable value was reset, please find attached screenshot on how I am doing it.

 

My question: is there a way to set the text field with a value that will not change when I re-open the form?!

 

thank!

Agreed, we will have to write some new code here but not for the OnSelect property.

 

My suggestion is for the form to show the value from 'ThisItem.'(TEXT Temp) Request Status' until the user clicks the New Submit which changes it to "01-Sending".  To do this I would change the Default property to the following code:

 

If(
    IsBlank(VarTempRequestStatus),
    ThisItem.'(TEXT Temp) Request Status',
    VarTempRequestStatus
)

 

Give this a try and come back to the forum with any questions.

Assuming your form submitted successfully you should use code like this in the Default property.  Make sure 'Request Status' is changed to the field name matching your spreadsheet.

ThisItem.'Request Status'

Hi @mdevaney 

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Sorry, I didn't get your solution here, I changed the default value as you mentioned, but what I should write now on the button's "OnSelect"? please find my new screenshot and also you may want to have a look at the original screenshot on this post.

 

Thanks again for your help!
