Single button with a toggle/different record

Dear Powerapps Team, 

 

I want to use one button with 2 different usage. When I tried to use the collect function plus ";" (semicolon), I am getting this:

 

button1.PNG

 

What happens is : when I click the "button", it gives me 2 different records. 


Is there a way that I can use a single button, it gives me 1 record at a time?

 

For example, When I click it the first time, it will give me a timestamp plus the "Button 1" description.

And when I click it the 2nd time, it will give me the timestamp plus the "Button 2" description.

 

 

Thank You and Kind Regards,

Kharina

From your description, you have to put the formulas on different buttons. That is separate the collect formula one on each button.

 

You can also add the next button as another column:

Collect(stamp,{timestamp:Label4_5.Text, Description:Button4.Text, Description2: Button4_5.Text})

Hi @eka24 ,

 

Thank you for the reply. 

I'm sorry if I'm unclear. 

I want to use one button to toggle the description everytime I press it. I don't want to use separate buttons.

 

Kind Regards,

KH

On the save button put:

UpdateContext({SaveMe: !SaveMe});

If(SaveMe,

Collect(stamp,{timestamp:Label4_5.Text, Description:Button4.Text}),

Collect(stamp,{timestamp:Label4_5.Text, Description:Button4_5.Text}))

Hi @eka24 , 

 

I really appreciate your time.

Sorry, i must've been doing it wrong because I'm not getting anything when I click the "save" button that I created. 

 

I want to show you this: 
1. When I click Start button, it creates a record:

B1.PNG

 

2. This also goes with the End button:

B2.PNG

 

3. However, when I click on the Toggle button, it gives me 2 records: 
B3.PNG

4. But when I click the Save button from your reply, I will get nothing:

**I want to use just the  "Toggle" Button, to get a start and End record, at a time.
Just like the "toggle switch" which creates a record whenever you push it. I just want to use a button. 

 

Can you help me correct my formula?

 

 

Thank You and Kind Regards,

Kharina

I think am not getting you.

You are using Toggle button and button at the same time. Meanwhile i cant see any toggle on your form. what i see is a button you have named toggle. Where is the toggle button?

Hi @eka24 ,

 

I'm sorry for the confusion. 

I want to use the toggle button -- that I placed on my canvass. ( not the toggle button with on and off switch).

 

I have 3 buttons: start, end and toggle.

I want to use the "toggle button" to get a record for Start and End.

I don't want to use the"start button" - to get a record for start and the "End button" to get a record for the End.

 

I watched  a video from Shane Young but, when he use one button, it shuffles the records in random.

On my app, I just want continuous record of Start and End. (and not random result).

 

Thank You and Kind Regards,

Kharina
