Patch Combobox to SharePoint Choice Coloum

Looking for some help please.

 

I’m trying to patch a combo box to a SharePoint Choice Column (Checkbox) but can’t seem to get anywhere. I can patch to a simple choice column, however after reading tutorials and videos on YouTube for combobox I’ve hit a dead end. Ive highlighted in red the patch string i found online, i think im nearly there, but need the forum helpCombobox.png.

Hi @Mac,

Is the Products 2 column a Choice type column (which enables multiple options) within your SP list?

Do you want to save a Combo box selected values/options into the Products 2 column of your SP list?

Further, could you please share more details about the error message with the formula that you provided?

 

I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:11.JPG

Set the OnSelect property of the "Patch" button to following formula:

 

Patch(
'20181015_case13',
Defaults('20181015_case13'),
{
Title:"PowerAppsTest2",
FruitChoice:ForAll(ComboBox1.SelectedItems,{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",Value:Value})
}
)

On your side, you should type following:

 

 

ForAll(
    CallBack,
    Patch(
        'Call Back Form',
        Defaults('Call Back Form'),
        {
          Customer_x0020_Name: CustomerName,
          Title: Number,
          ...
          Products_x0020_2: ForAll(
DataCardValue17.SelectedItems,
{
'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",
Value: Value
}
) } ) )

Or

ClearCollect(
    ChoiceCollection,
    ForAll(DataCardValue17.SelectedItems,{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",Value:Value})
);
ForAll(
    CallBack,
    Patch(
        'Call Back Form',
        Defaults('Call Back Form'),
        {
          Customer_x0020_Name: CustomerName,
          Title: Number,
          ...
          Products_x0020_2: ChoiceCollection
        }
    )
)

Hi @Mac,

my simple suggestion is to get rid of choice columns in PowerApp by either changing the column type in SharePoint to single line of text or adding a calculated column with the choice column selected and using that instead.

Hello @v-xida-msft ,

In this example:

Patch(
'20181015_case13',
Defaults('20181015_case13'),
{
Title:"PowerAppsTest2",
FruitChoice:ForAll(ComboBox1.SelectedItems,{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",Value:Value})
}
)

Is there a way to concatenate an additional value outside the ForAll statement? For example, I have an "Other" option in the combobox which allows text input (OtherInput). So I would want to do something like:

FruitChoice:ForAll(ComboBox1.SelectedItems,{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",Value:Value})&", "Value: OtherInput.Text

 

This doesn't work, but I wanted to see how I might do this.

 

thanks

I had a similar issue.
I need to paste multiple selected items in a combobox to a sharepoint list text column.
This is how I did this inside Patch:

Patch(DestinationList,{TextColum: Concat(ComboBox.SelectedItems,VariableValue,", ")}

Concat(ComboBox.SelectedItems,VariableValue,", ") 

This separates the items selected in combobox with ", " and converts the whole into text and allows me to patch the Sharepoint list.
