Struggle with power apps with the french syntax (colon/semi colon)

Hi folks , maybe you can help me .

I struggle with the syntax of my chatbot 🙂 I have a button wich send the content of TextInput and retreive the response for a flow , then insert the question and the response inside the a collection name collection1 and display then


Collect( Bot;(TextInput1.Text);(FAQBOT.Run(TextInput1.Text).reponse))


the flow response is


{ "reponse": "blablabla", "jeton": "0" }


The display in a gallery  is ok but when I look into my collection jeton and reponse field are empty , everything  goes to value instead. what is the correct syntax to populate the field of the collection ?? ( I follow tutorials but the french syntax of collect  is different than the english one )? thanks in advance

Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

Collect( Bot;
    Patch({Value:TextInput1.Text}; {FAQBOT.Run(TextInput1.Text).reponse})

See if that produces the results you would like.
