concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

I have a form with several textboxes.

Lets call them for this question textbox1, textbox2,textbox3

Label for textbox2 = "Customer_Supplier"

Label for textbox3 = "Rep_Agency"

Current value in textbox1 is    "This is a large customer"

 

if Textbox2 value  =  "Yes" then I need the value from textbox2 to concatenate to the current value in textbox1 and seperated by  ;(semicolon). But the Label name is also added.

So then value in Textbox1 is now  

This is a large customerCustomer_Supplier = Yes

 

if Textbox3 value  =  "Yes" then I need the value from textbox3 to concatenate to the current value in textbox1 and seperated by  ;(semicolon). But the Label name is also added.

So then value in Textbox1 is now  

"This is a large customerCustomer_Supplier = Yes; Rep Agency = Yes"

 

Thanks

Is this possible ?

Dave

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

Hi @DAVIDPOWELL 

 

The Concatenate function returns a string value, so you can sue this expression anywhere you can pass a string.

Yes, you can add it on a label on the "Text" property. The expression you shared is a bit different from what I shared with you, is there any difference in the logical expression?

Can you try to use the below expression?

If(DataCardValue17.Text = "Yes" || DataCardValue19.Text = "Yes", DataCardValue16.Text & ";" & DataCardKey17.Text & ";" & DataCardKey19.Text,DataCardValue16.Text )


This will check if either one of the DataCardValue are true and concatenate. If either of the two is empty, you might see two semicolons.

 

Concatenate(DataCardValue16.Text, If(!IsBlank(DataCardValue17.Text), ";"&Label2.Text&" = "&DataCardValue17.Text),If(!IsBlank(DataCardValue19.Text), ";"&Label3.Text&" = "&DataCardValue19.Text))


This will display the labels corresponding to the datacards here.

If this differs, please share more details about the logical implementation.

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

Hi @DAVIDPOWELL ,

 

Sorry but I didn't fully understand what you want. Like " if Textbox2 value  =  "Yes" then I need the value from textbox2 to concatenate...", are Textbox2 and textbox2 two different label controls? What is the data source of your form? What are the column types of related fields?

 

Regards,

Mona

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

ok,

I just want to  concatenate 2 field  values if a condition exists in one of the textboxes.

I'm trying to create 2 variables then.

so in the OnChange for the datacards

Set(v_ASN,DataCardValue17.Text)

Set(v_NOTES,DataCardValue16.Text)

then just to get it to work.

Button-onselect

If(v_NOTES = "Yes",DataCardValue16.Text = v_NOTES && v_ASN)

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

Hi @DAVIDPOWELL 

 

Can you try to use the expression as:

Concatenate(TextInput1.Text, If(TextInput2.Text = "Yes", ";"&Label2.Text&" = "&TextInput2.Text),If(TextInput3.Text = "Yes", ";"&Label3.Text&" = "&TextInput3.Text))

This will work in the case where you only want to check for Yes in the Textbox.

If you want to check if the textinputs are blank, you can use:

Concatenate(TextInput1.Text, If(!IsBlank(TextInput2.Text), ";"&Label2.Text&" = "&TextInput2.Text),If(!IsBlank(TextInput3.Text), ";"&Label3.Text&" = "&TextInput3.Text))

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

ok   etall,

 

These are my actual values:

Concatenate(DataCardValue16.Text, If(DataCardValue17.Text = "Yes", ";"&"ASN"&" = "&DataCardValue17.Text),If(DataCardValue19.Text = "Yes", ";"&"EDI_SPS_Confirmations"&" = "&DataCardValue19.Text))

 

I tried putting this on a command button but will not work ??

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

just for the heck of it:

I added a label to the form and set it "text" property to

If(DataCardValue17.Text = "Yes" Or DataCardValue19.Text = "Yes", DataCardValue16.Text & ";" & DataCardKey17.Text & ";" & DataCardKey19.Text,DataCardValue16.Text )    

 

and it worked fine,

but i still cant get the "DataCardValue16.Text"  to change to this evaluation ?

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

Thanks

get a circular reference error on  this statement

if i put this in the text property of the Label2 object.

however, in the debug window the concatenation is giving me what i need !! .

but i just cant get the "DataCardValue16"  text to the result of  the formula ?

 

Concatenate(DataCardValue16.Text, If(!IsBlank(DataCardValue17.Text), ";"&Label2.Text&" = "&DataCardValue17.Text),If(!IsBlank(DataCardValue19.Text), ";"&Label3.Text&" = "&DataCardValue19.Text))

 fyi

 

Your other statement worked fine.

but i just cant get the "DataCardValue16"  text to the result of  the formula ?

Re: concatenate a textbox value from other textboxes based on the value in 2 textboxes

@DAVIDPOWELL 

 

If I understand you correctly... lets just say that your labels are named label2 for textbox2 and label3 for textbox3, etc.

 

Concatenate(TextInput1.Text,If(TextInput2.Text="Yes",Concatenate("; ",Label2.Text," = ",TextInput2.Text)),If(TextInput3.Text="Yes",Concatenate("; ",Label3.Text," = ",TextInput3.Text)))

 

However, you will not be able to put this back into TextBox1 as it will create a circular reference with TextBox1. The result needs to go into another control (textbox or label) or the initial "This is a large customer" needs to come from somewhere else.

 

Hope this helps,

Mike
