Having a blast with AppGyver.
I’m wanting to implement a dropdown list for users to select an option.
I’ve got the drop down on the page,
I have it set to a custom list of options.
The problem I am having is being able to test for the option that was chosen by the user.
I can set a TF condition “On Tap” for the dropdown list and use an if condition to test if a user has "tapped " the dropdown list.
But I am at a loss as to how to test for the actual value that the user has selected. As far as I can tell all you can do with an IF Condition is test for T/F
Normally I would want to:
if (some_variable_that_holds_ text) == (certain value) then do this…
perhaps there is something that I am missing, or a way to get those values out of that drop down that I simply don’t realize how to do.
Looking forward to finding a solution soon.
Thanks in advance,
I believe the whole idea around the IF condition is that it evaluates to true or false. Using a formula you should be able to get extremely creative with evaluating different scenario’s.
In the example below I am testing to see if the user has selected “One” in my dropdown. If they have then it shows the Yes text and if not then it show the No text. I am storing the selected value in a page variable called DropdownChoice. I can then evaluate this variable using IF conditions in formulas, the If Condition flow function, etc.
Thanks so much going to try it right now
Cool! Let me know if you run into an issue. I think the main thing is creating a Page Variable and then setting the Dropdown Value to that page variable so you can access it later.
Hey Adam, I’m Supper Happy to report that because of your help I was able to get the logic to do what I wanted for my app! ( changing tunings based on user input)
Here’s a quick peek at my app
Thanks again for clarifying the usage of Binding Formulas to If Conditions, it was just what I needed to get this project finished
That looks pretty sweet! Glad it worked out for you!
So cool! That looks like your app will be a blast!
