For attachments on your table are you using notes? or the  Field control File?

Hi @Mira_Ghaly 

 

Yes, I'm using Notes.

Hi @Axal,

 

The Notes table has an Is Document column which is a Yes/No (boolean), which will indicate if the note has an attachment.

Hi @ChrisPiasecki ,

 

I'm sorry, may I know how to use it? I had an icon in my Gallery to identify whether my record has attachment or not and I'm trying this in its Visible property :

If(
    ThisItem.Notes.'Is Document' = true,
    true, false
)

 The intention is, if there is attachment, the icon will show else it is hidden. But seems wrong. It looks like the return of "ThisItem.Notes.'Is Document'" is a table. 

 

Beside that I also want to add another label right beside the icon, for the count of the attachments. 

 

Thanks

Hi @Axal,

 

Yes thats correct your selected item will have a collection of notes. You can use the CountIf function to determine if there are any Note records where IsAttachment is true. You can use the Count function to determine the total number of Note records for your selected item.
