Punctuation is used to separate the items in the list. The usual way of doing this is to place a comma after each item in the list, with the last item in the list typically preceded by the words and or or.  That's easy to do when writing a document, but how do you automate this when you don't know how many items will be in your list?

This Blog is about the Combo Box and an alternative way to set them up. This post is interesting for several reasons:

  • Setting up Combo boxes is relatively time-consuming
  • Combo Boxes tent to change the displayed text from time to time
  • We want to make it easier to reuse code in our apps

In this blog, we will create a wrapper formula to deal with this point. We use Filter, AddColumns, SortByColumns, ShowColumns formulas to do so.

If you are more a visual learner, you can also watch this video:

Hey PowerApps Fans!

 

I would like to announce that we will begin recognizing our top PowerApps Community contributors for each month with a special gift! We will be giving away exclusive Microsoft PowerApps swag to our Top Community Contributors at the end of each month, starting this month! (March 2019)

This is an incentive for ANYONE & EVERYONE in the PowerApps Community who wants a chance to earn some awesome PowerApps swag! 

 

What are PowerApps Community Contributions?

The most important community contributions that you can offer are Solutions Authored. This means that you wrote a reply on someone's thread and they felt like your reply was a valid solution to the issue initially addressed by their thread so they marked your reply as the Accepted Solution. That is what we are mostly here for, after all, working solutions to our issues! Replies Authored, Kudos Given/Received are other examples of community contribution, but they will not be weighed as heavily as your Solutions Authored!

There are lots of threads throughout the PowerApps Community right now that don't have replies or haven't received any acceptable solutions as replies. This is something we can all help solve together if we offer our knowledge wherever we can.

 

How do I find the topics/threads that I can offer help with?

Let's say that you have some knowledge and experience regarding using the "Compose" action in PowerApps. You can use the search feature to conduct very specific searches regarding the "Component" action that will only show the threads where you can offer help regarding that specific action. This is an excellent way for anyone to help lots of other PowerApps users while at the same time keeping your skills sharp and learning new things! I recommend that EVERYONE registered here on the PowerApps Community regularly conduct quick searches for the areas where you can offer insight. I can almost guarantee you 100% that you will at least learn some great new things along the way. 

 

We have a special 1ST PLACE PRIZE TO KICK OFF THIS MONTHLY SWAG GIVEAWAY FOR WHOMEVER PROVIDES THE MOST SOLUTIONS IN MARCH

One of the features that I missed from MS Access was the “Search as you type” feature of the dropdown/combobox control.  While you can have this functionality in a Combobox control, I prefer to use a dropdown instead for simplicity. In addition, the built in “Search” function of the PowerApps Combobox is not delegatable in SharePoint and will always throw a delegation warning.

The Power Platform World Tour (formerly referred to as the Power BI World Tour) is well underway as it recently wrapped up its second stop in Silicon Valley, California.

With 24+ breakout sessions covering topics across the entire Power Platform, expert speakers, and great conversations fueled by gallons of coffee, it’s easy to see the excitement building within the Power Platform User Groups.

After all, when else do Microsoft team members, users of Power BI, PowerApps, and Flow, and industry experts gather together to bring content closer to the local community?

This is the time to push the boundaries of current business practices by focusing on empowerment, customization, and innovations through a community approach. This is your opportunity as a Citizen Developer, Technical, Business, or New User to step away from your desk and focus on discovering best practices for maximizing efficiency and effectiveness within your Power Platform product.

Washington D.C. and Chicago are on the horizon – Now is the time to get involved as we connect, collaborate, and build.

A button in PowerApps has a "OnSelect" property but no "OnDoubleSelect" property. So is it not possible to have a double-click event in PowerApps then? But it is possible, with a little bit of extra effort. This blog post shows you how to add double-click functionality to a button in PowerApps. At the end, a video is shown for a more visual explanation.
