Question about an UpdateContext function inside an OnChange.
In this situation, there is one label, two dropdowns, and one textbox.
The label ('In Specifications')'s text is changing based on an UpdateContext function, which triggers in the OnChange of both dropdowns ('Dimensional Callout #'/'Location'). The textbox ('Dimensional Value') dictates the condition/result of the text and color: Yes if the Dimensional Value is in the range depicted, No if outside of the range.
The label's text is changing correctly most of the time, but it will not change correctly randomly and displays incorrect values to the user.
Before dismissing it as an intermittent Powerapps bug, has anyone seen this before? If it is a Powerapps bug, does anyone have an explanation of the reason it is happening?
Further explanation can be given if not clear. Thank you in advance.
Hi, for the property that is not changing correctly, add Reset(ControlNameNotChanging) to the onchange property of the dropdown, where ControlNameNotChanging is your label name
Ok, sorry, that was my fault. Rather than using UpdateContext() try using Set() for example, Set(var_selected,Dropdown1.Selected.Value) and use var_selected in the same place you are using the updatecontext field
Thank you for the reply. We were using Set before UpdateContext and there were a lot of issues with the label updating correctly. After making the switch to UpdateContext from the advice from another forum post, we ran into fewer issues and more consistent displaying of correct values. However, inconsistencies still occur and we are looking for a solution or explanation of its root cause.
The randomness is the main issue, since it is occurring occasionally without any code changes and noticeable patterns. Any suggestions are appreciated.
