Updating a bound field programatically

Hi Team,

I'm pretty new to PowerApps so please excuse if my question sounds trivial.


I have a edit form whose data source is a SQL table.

I need to assign value to one of the bound textfields on a click of a separate button

(idea  being user will update most of the other fields, but this field gets auto-updated with valid values)


Unfortunately the regular code of textfeld.text = "some value" does not seem to work.


Can you please point me to some resource which explains how I can implement the same or jolt down some steps how should I resolve this.

Insert a button an put this variable on the onselect: Set(MyValue,"The text you want")

Then in the default of the textbox that you want to see when user clicks the button put: MyValue
