Re: select multple buttons

Hi @mehul_sompura ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to select multiple buttons within your app, then filter your Gallery Items based on the selected Request status (e.g. Submitted & Approved)?

Further, could you please share a bit more about the Filter formula you used within your app?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, I think four global variables could achieve your needs. Please take a try with the following workaround:4.JPG

The data source in my app is a SP list. The Status column in my SP list is a Choice type column, which has four available options -- Submitted, Approved, Declined and Cancel.

On your side, you need to set one global variable for each Buttons within your app. Set the OnSelect property of the SubmittedButton to following:

Set(Submitted, !Submitted)

Set the Fill property to following:

If(Submitted, RGBA(56, 96, 178, 1), RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1))

Set the OnSelect property of the ApprovedButton to following:

Set(Approved, !Approved)

Set the Fill property to following:

If(Approved, RGBA(56, 96, 178, 1), RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1))

 

Set the OnSelect property of the DeclinedButton to following:

Set(Declined, !Declined)

Set the Fill property to following:

If(Declined,RGBA(56, 96, 178, 1), RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1))

 

Set the OnSelect property of the CancelButton to following:

Set(Canceled, !Canceled)

Set the Fill property to following:

If(Canceled, RGBA(56, 96, 178, 1), RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1))

 

Set the Items property of the Gallery to following formula:

Filter(
       '20190325_case13', 
       If(
           Submitted=false && Approved=false && Declined=false && Canceled=false,
           true,
           If(Submitted, Status.Value = "Submitted", false) || If(Approved, Status.Value = "Approved", false) || If(Declined, Status.Value = "Declined", false) || If(Canceled, Status.Value = "Cancel", false)
       )
)

On your side, you should type:

Filter(
       'YourDataSource', 
       If(
           Submitted=false && Approved=false && Declined=false && Canceled=false,
           true,
           If(Submitted, Status = "Submitted", false) || If(Approved, Status = "Approved", false) || If(Declined, Status = "Declined", false) || If(Canceled, Status = "Cancel", false)
       )
)

Note: The Status represents the column in your data source, which used to store the request status, e.g. "Submitted", "Approved", "Declined" and "Cancel". If your data source is also a SP list, and the Status column is also a Choice column, please take a try with above Filter solution I provided.

 

In addition, if you want to combine above Filter formula with the TextSearchbox within your app, please consider modify your formula as below:

Filter(
       Search('YourDataSource', TextSearchBox.Text, "SearchColumn1", "SearchColumn2", ...), 
       If(
           Submitted=false && Approved=false && Declined=false && Canceled=false,
           true,
           If(Submitted, Status = "Submitted", false) || If(Approved, Status = "Approved", false) || If(Declined, Status = "Declined", false) || If(Canceled, Status = "Cancel", false)
       )
)

Note: If your data source is a SP list, when you take a try with above formula, you may face a Delegation warning issue. If the amount of your SP list records is not more than 2000, you could ignore this issue.

Re: select multple buttons

Hi @mehul_sompura . This is an interesting use case! There are likely many ways to accomplish this. One way I'm thinking of is with variables.

Maybe give this a try:

Setup "toggle-like" feature of buttons:

  • OnSelect property of Submitted button:
    • If(
          IsBlank(varSubmitted), 
          Set(varSubmitted, btn_submitted.Text), 
          Set(varSubmitted, Blank()
      )
  • Fill property of Submitted button: If(varSubmitted = btn_submitted.Text, Red, White)
  • Color property of Submitted button: If(varSubmitted = btn_submitted.Text, Black, White)
  • Test that out then repeat for all buttons.

Setup correct filtering:

  • Without seeing your Filter logic, I'll take a guess here. You can adapt it for your needs.
  • Filter(colOutOfOffice, Or(status = varSubmitted, status = varApproved))
  • I've only lightly tested this. You'll need to adjust for your needs.

Maybe this helps you! Let us know!

Take care
