Unable to Access Global Variable , and state in Button Click Function

Hi,

I am trying to access one of the global collections from a button click function. I have a requirement to show a detail list based on button click. On button click i need to show inactive records otherwise i should show active records on a list. 

 

I am able to show Active records , however not sure how to do the button click functionality. In the button click event i am unable to access any global variables or collections including state. Please suggest, i am using office react ui controls.

Re: Unable to Access Global Variable , and state in Button Click Function

Are you giving click event like this
this._btnUpdateLatLong.addEventListener("click", this.updateRecord.bind(this));
 
In updateRecord, I am accessing all global variable through this keyword eg this.VarName

Try using Set(<variablename>,<value>). I had better luck with this that creating a collection, saving it and the retrieving the first collection. It works better with set. Best of luck

Hard to understand without looking at the code. Can you please share control with minimal code where this can be reproed. Given the function scopes,  you might need to store it locally and pass into the functions needing it.
