Hey Guys , 


i have a powerapps that has a custom gallery and i have made the fields editable so the user can go change the values within the custom gallery. My Custom gallery is connected to a database, is there a way that when the user changes the the value or text within a field that it gets written back to the database straight away so like doing it with update on change maybe? i have tried it but i cant get it to work. is there a way to do it? 


Thanks in advance for the help !

You use the fields inside your gallery. So if you have a text box you update the onchange for that and use a patch function to write it to the DAtasource / collection.

so i have a custom gallery a text input field. in the onchange of the text input i have this code 

OnChange: Patch( (datastouce) ,ThisItem,{Comments:ThisItem.Comments})

when i write something in the gallery it doesnt update the value for that row.  what am i doing wrong ?
