SharePointIntegration.Selected gives me last opened item

Hi! I am trying to get a SharePoint item field value in Power Apps OnEdit event using SharePointIntegration.Selected.MyFieldName. But this gives me the last opened item field value. Why?

Hi @kolbackx ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that the SharePointIntegration.Selected.MyFieldName formula would still return previous selected item value when you edit another item in your SP List?

 

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. Please take a try with the following fixed solution:

Set the OnEdit property of the SharePointIntegration control to following:

Refresh('Your SP List');  // Add formula here
Set(Var1, SharePointIntegration.Selected.MyFieldName);   // save the formula result into a variable
EditForm(SharePointForm1)

 

In addition, you could also consider use the following formula to retrieve the field value of the selected item:

LookUp('Your SP List', ID = SharePointIntegration.SelectedListItemID, MyFieldName)

or

LookUp('Your SP List', ID = SharePointIntegration.SelectedListItemID).MyFieldName

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Hi @kolbackx ,

The field name in SharePointIntegration.Selected will certainly be the last one you selected back in SharePoint as that is exactly what that term means.

You might try setting a variable in the OnChange of the field control concerned and refer to this when asking for the value it was changed to.

 

Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.
