Setting textfield data with button select

I'm taking my first jump into Power Apps and am trying to do something simple like set a text field with a predefined string using a button select. I'm running into issues. When I first open the form it will work correctly, after that it won't work at all.

The onselect property of the button has the following:

    UpdateContext({varComment: "Updated comment value.."})

The text fields default property has the following:

    varComment

It's my understanding that Power Apps underbelly is more like excel, I'm coming straight from InfoPath.
