Trying to concatenate values(not repeating) from collection and storing them into text.

Hello everyone, i have text value which is i split them before inserting into collection. After splitting them, i am trying to concatenate them and stored them into a text without repeating the same value

 

My text value:

CYJ_1-1592901958157.png

 

My button Function:

 

CYJ_0-1592901919280.png

 

Inside the collection,

Hi @Rahber ,

 

Just noticed that i needed distinct value from the collection in case of duplicated value. I am still getting the duplicated value in the text despite using the distinct function.

Change the collection to:

Collect( Test4, { Company:Split(TextInput5_3.Text,"@").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))
 
Then In the Textbox:
Concat(Test6,Result &",")

I tried before sending, no duplicates. Possible you did not change the last bit:

    Concat(Test6,Result &",")

@eka24 ,

 

I checked in the collection itself. The test6 follow the collection of test5. I will try again then

Revise it to:

Collect( Test4, { Company:Split(TextInput5_3.Text,",").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))
 
I was using :
Collect( Test4, { Company:Split(TextInput5_3.Text,"@").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))

@eka24 ,

 

Tested that too but still the same. Could it be a bug?

Revise it to:

ClearCollect( Test4, { Company:Split(TextInput5_3.Text,",").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))
 
or
ClearCollect( Test4, { Company:Split(Trim(TextInput5_3.Text),", ").Result});
ClearCollect(Test5,Ungroup(Test4,"Company"));
ClearCollect(Test6,Distinct(Test5,Result))
 
Then
Concat(Test6,Result &",")
