Submit Form button to validate form, update a field, submit form

Hi all,

 

I would like create a form with PowerApps on SharePoint Online.

and would like the a "Submit" button with the following function in "onSelect" action:

  • validate the form, if failured, show error notfication & message;
  • change the "Status" field to "Submitted";
  • update all fields to list item

I know that, the "SubmitForm()" function is including Validate function and if validate failure, the related error message will visible.

Howerver, since I would like to change the "Status" field to "Submitted" before "SubmitForm()", so that, I cannot directly use  "SubmitForm()" function.

 

After that, I found that, "editForm" have "Valid" properies and it will return a bolean as the return result, but it did not trigger to show error mesage on each fields (i.e. DataCard.Error).

 

Here is some coding on my SubmitButton.OnSelect:

My question is, any build in function can show all fields's error message, instead of "SubmitForm()"? 

Or any idea / workaround solution?

 

Many thanks,
