Help with the label input text property for the if statment

I have a text box in my detailed page of my form which shows the status of the App. (if its approved it shows Approved/if it is rejected, it shows rejected). However, I am working on writing an if statement where if the decision is not made by the manager it should show as "pending"

 

to do that 

 

in the text label field I am writign this if statment on the text property as :

 

If(IsBlank(Label21.text),"Pending",ThisItem.Approval)

 

Label21---is the text input label

Thisitem.Approval- I have a coloumn in my sql table as approval 

 

but it says "name is invalid or the formula has something that is no longer valid".

 

Can someone please guide me on this?

Re: Help with the label input text property for the if statment

If I am understanding this correctly.  This Text() property you have screen shotted is for the object Label21, and PowerApps will not let you have a circular reference within the text() property to the same text() property.  

 

This raises the question on what is it you really want to check is blank.  What value should be populating this field?  I think what you are trying to do is the below:

If(IsBlank(ThisItem.Approval), "Pending", ThisItem.Approval)

Hi,

 

Can you post a screen shot of the code with the error? There is typically a darker underlining of red under the field/variable/object that is throwing the error.
