"Are you sure" on selection

I have an app that collects results that go directly to a list. 


I want to add a popup or something similar that only triggers if the result is "Postitive" - requesting that the user double check the field before submitting.

Here's an article I wrote on how to add a Pop-Up Form in Power Apps.  The first paragraph is about how to create a 'Confirmation Pop-Up'.  I think its exactly what is needed here.

I'm a beginner, but when I try to type "locShow" nothing happens. Do I need to change my fx from Text?




You have to initialize the variable too with an UPDATECONTEXT function.

I don't know what that means, but thanks for the help anyway.

hi @mattke07 ,


UpdateContext({locShow: if(YourControlValue = "Positive", true, false)})



Add a rectangle to your screen

add a lable with your text on top of it

add two button, one for "OK" and one for "Cancel"

Now group all the controls by selecting them all and click on group (group1 will be created if you have no other groups yet)


now in the OnSelect even on your submit button add the updatecontext i listed.


select the group and select  the visible parameter and set that to locShow


This will show the group when the user select Positive. you will need another variable to get the response from the buttons to determine the next steps, let me know if you need some more info


Try to build the short example in the tutorial.  It will walk you through step-by-step.
