Show/Hide Attachments Field based on the drop down field

Hi Everyone! This is my first PowerApps project. I'm making a request form.

 

How should I make the "Attachments" field be visible when the "Request Type" field is set to "Renewal"?

On the Visable property of the attachment control put in If(Requestfield.selected.value = "Renewal")

you need to replace Requestfield with what your dropdown control is named, selected it and you should see the name on the left.

My bad, but I replaced it with "Request Type" field name. That's the field name of the dropdown.

 

I also tried "DataCardKey8", "Request Type_DataCard1". Still won't work. Am I doing something wrong?

it needs to match the controls on the left side in your menu. So in this case, the actual Dropdown is that Datacardvalue7 , you get type ahead as you type, so it should show up as you start typing, same with the next available values (.Selected.Value)

Still not successful. I typed in and words appear. But still don't work. 😞

Oh crap sorry, don't put If around it, just do Datacardvalue7.selected.value = "Renewal"

Past my bedtime. lol.

You can use If too but you have to add ,true,false) after it, but the above does the same thing.

I'm wondering if I do something wrong. But still it won't work.

 

Checking the error details, here's what I got.

Can you show the visible property text you have in there?
