Add a "while" statement into powerapps

This is quite a self explanatory idea (a statement to run whilst the condition stated is true) as is a fairly basic command in most languages and i feel is missing in PowerApps.

 

The ForAll statement can replace a while in SOME situations but not all. For example, if you want to check if a table has been refreshed - a ForAll loop doesn't really help you! 

 

A while loop would greatly improve efficiency for me instead of having to use longwinded workarounds which waste both a lot of time on myside writing it, and on the users side as it is resource heavy. Please add this feature as it is a common sense command that would aid a lot of people!

Note that as an alternative to this (and perhaps being more general), providing an option to force ForAll() to be performed SEQUENTIALLY may alleviate this.

Hi,

 

just checking in to see whether this idea has gained any traction? Maybe it’s stuck in a while loop? 🙄
