When you have two or more buttons or even icons on a page that performs the same function, you shouldn't have to provide the same formula for both buttons. You should have the ability to trigger a button's click/pressed event from the other button so that you only maintain one version of the formule.
I believe a cleaner approach would be to be able to define functions/procedures, then you could call the same code from two or more buttons on any numbers of screens.
Agree it would be a cleaner solution. However, PowerApps seems so far away from being able to offer user defined functions. So a more attainable solution might be to allow triggering another button.
No update on this?
This is now possible, I believe, via the Select() action.
This is not yet documented but will work.
@Meneghino, I see that you can only use select it the control is on the same screen. Still helpful but would be great to trigger buttons on other screens as well.
Is there any update on when this idea possibly being implemented?
As it is would be very helpful functionality and aid in many aspects of form/app creation.
