search field accent issue

Hi,

 

I am creating an application wherein there is a gallery with a lot of choices.

I have a search field, to help users narrow down the possibilities.

The user's language is French, so I'm confronted with accent problems.

 

Is there a possibility to force PowerApps to ignore accents?

 

thanks

Hey,

You can build a function in order to replace letters with accent, and then make the search, as mentioned here on this post: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Return-search-results-with-and-without-accen....

 

The person there was also working in French, so I guess that can fit to your requirement.
