Validation on submit button (ForAll/IF)

Morning,

 

I am trying to add an IF statment for validaton on the below ForAll Statement.  


This is for a popup that have 4 icons and they have to be selected to set of the rest of the statement.  I am unsure on where to have the IF statement.  I am pretty certain it needs a isBlank function in there too.

 

Any help would be great.  Thanks!

@Joko 

Have you looked at the Errors function?  You can use that to determine if there were any errors during your patching.

Also, maybe shorten your formula a little?

 

ForAll(
    Filter(
        collectSelectedOptions,
        Selected
    ),
    Patch(
    	'RoomDamageApp - Room Damage',
    	Defaults('RoomDamageApp - Room Damage'),
    	{
    	ItemDamaged: Switch(IconName,
    		"Display", "Monitor",
    		"Keyboard", "Keyboard",
    		"Mouse", "Mouse"),
    	PC: Label_Computer_Result.Text,
    	Room: label_roomnumber.Text,
    	Comments: CommentBox.Text,
    	Staff: Label_StaffMember_Result.Text,
    	Period: {
    		Id: Dropdown_Period.Selected.Id,
    		Value: Dropdown_Period.Selected.Value
                }
        }
        )    
);
//Here check for errors
If(!IsBlank(Errors('RoomDamageApp - Room Damage')), //whatever you want to do here...
UpdateContext({ShowSuccessPopup: true})

 

I hope that helps some for you.

Hi there thanks for your reply.

 

the If Statement is after the main code section.  I think this is still running the code but not excecuting when i press the submit button.

 

I have edited to this for now.

    )
);
If(!IsBlank(ItemDamaged), UpdateContext({pleasePickItem: true}),UpdateContext({ShowSuccessPopup: true}))

So the pleasepickitem is a label that shows up when nothing is selected.  Which is fine but the 2nd popup doesnt fire when the rule is set to false.


Thanks! 

@Joko 

Your Errors function should specify the name of your datasource (in this case the 'RoomDamageApp - Room Damage') Not the column name you have in your formula.

Wouldn't that just work if the sharepoint list is blank ? Or am i confused?


Thanks


@Joko 

No, the Errors function specifically needs to look at the DataSource and optionally a record to determine if there are errors.

   Errors(dataSource) will return a colleciton of any errors for the datasource.

   Errors(dataSource, aRecord) will return an error record for any error in the datasource for a specific record.

 

Take a look at the Errors function for some more examples.

Thanks for your reply, although i can't seem to get this to work.

Just for context this is the popup i have, the 4 icons i would like to have the validation on.  I can get it to show a popup telling people to select an icon, however if i do select an icon, the button doesn't work.  Very confused.  

 

Thanks.

 

Edit: This is the validation i am using now: 

);If(!IsBlank(Errors('RoomDamageApp - Room Damage')),UpdateContext({pleasePickItem:true}),UpdateContext({ShowSuccessPopup:true}))

 

So when i don't select one, i get the popup and sharepoint doesn't update - which is great.  But when i do select one, i still get the same pleasepickitem popup but sharepoint DOES update.  Its like it's not looking at the false reading.

@Joko 

Can you let me know your formula you have for selecting the icons?  That would be helpful.

Also, your full formula on the submit button.

I think this is all you will need to replicate it.


Thanks 🙂
