Toggle switch with another button OnSelect (on save) (SharePoint list)

How can I toggle a switch (or tick a checkbox) with another button?

 

I need a hidden Toggle (Yes/No), by default it's OFF. I want another button, that will toggle the switch to ON and then submits the form.

 

How can I achieve this?

 

Many thanks

One quick way to do this is the use of a variable.

In your Button OnSelect action use a formula such as this:

   Set(setToggle, true)

 

Then on your Default property of the Toggle control, set this formula:

   setToggle

 

If you are using the toggle to then perform an action in the "OnCheck" action of the control, then do your formula, and then at the end, place a Set(setToggle, false) to reset the toggle back so that it can be "called" again.

 

This is a very useful pattern to do with toggle controls.  HOWEVER, there is one word of warning...

If you put your toggle control on another screen, you need to at least reference the Toggle Control on the screen where your button is.  You can do that simply enough with a non-visible label with the text property set to yourToggleName.Value

This will work perfectly from any screen (as long as you have a referencing "dummy label").

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

This is brilliant! I was almost there, just didn't know where to apply the variable 🙂

 

FYI, I needed to toggle it "on save" without the user knowing about it, so that Flow knows what to do next 😉

 

Thank you very much! Smiley Very Happy
