PowerApps Toggle Control

PowerApps toggle control works the same way as a checkbox. We can use PowerApps Toggle Control to turn on and off using its handle.

Toggle control is a switch in PowerApps. By using this switch control, a user can turn on or turn off the toggle switch by using its handle.

We will see here how to use PowerApps toggle yes/no.

Add Toggle Control to PowerApps Screen

By taking a simple example, I will show you how to add PowerApps toggle control and how to use it in a PowerApps Screen.

Example:

You can easily add a Toggle control in your Powerapps Edit form. Go to Insert tab -> Input -> Select Toggle control. Then you can see the Toggle switch control will be added in your PowerApps screen/form.

In this example, I will take a Toggle control and one Label input control. What I will do is, I will set a condition formula in the Label control.

Based upon the Toggle switch value as On/Off, the label will display that specific condition value.

In the below screenshot, you can see a toggle control has been added to the Powerapps screen.

powerapps toggle control
Toggle PowerApps control

Just rename the toggle switch to “Powerapps Course Discount“. For renaming the Toggle switch control, click on more () option and then Rename.

Also, you can rename the toggle switch by double-clicking on it.

powerapps toggle change text

Similarly, add a Label control (Insert -> Label) and apply the below formula on its Text property as:

Text = If('Powerapps Course Discount'.Value = true, "Price: $100", "Price: $500")

Where,

“Powerapps Course Discount” = Toggle switch Name

This above formula specifies, if the toggle switch (Powerapps Course Discount) is On, then, the Price will be $100 otherwise it will be $500.

Save and Publish the PowerApps app. Then preview the app by using the F5 button. When you will do the toggle switch value as “On“, then you can see the Price value will be automatically changed to “$100” depending on the condition as shown below.

PowerApps change on off to yes/no

Normally when you will add a Toggle switch control in your Powerapps edit form, it shows the text value either as On or Off. But, In some cases, you may require the Toggle text value as Yes or No instead of On or Off.

Let us see PowerApps change toggle to yes/no or PowerApps change toggle to yes/no.

To resolve this issue, Powerapps provides two toggle properties options as “TrueText” and “FalseText“. By using both properties, you can easily convert the Toggle text value like Yes/No, True/False, or On/Off as per your need.

Example:

For example, I have a SharePoint List and it has some Yes/No field columns. Below screenshot represents all the SharePoint Yes/No fields:

powerapps change toggle to yes/no

When I have added all these Yes/No fields in the Powerapps Edit form, then all the toggle text value appears with “On/Off” instead of “Yes/No“. The Powerapps edit form looks like below screenshot:

powerapps change on off to yes/no
powerapps change toggle to yes/no

To convert this Toggle text value from On/Off to Yes/No, you need to do these below things:

Read PowerApps Now, Today, and IsToday function

Change PowerApps Toggle Text from On to Yes

In the Powerapps edit form, just select any one of your toggle data cards that you want to convert the text value from On to Yes. Apply the below formula on its TrueText property as:

TrueText = "Yes"

By default, the TrueText value was “On”. You can refer to the below screenshot.

powerapps change toggle to yes no
powerapps change toggle to yes no

Change PowerApps Toggle Text from Off to No

Similarly, to convert the text value from Off to No, just select any one of your toggle data cards that you want to change and apply the below formula on its FalseText property as:

FalseText = "No"

By default, the FalseText value was “Off”. You can refer to the below screenshot.

Once it is done, just Save and Publish the Powerapps app.

Power apps Toggle switch

Preview the Powerapps app:

When you will Preview (F5) the app, then you can see all the toggle text values are changed from On/Off to Yes/No as shown below.

PowerApps toggle yes/no

In this topic, We will see how to work with PowerApps toggle yes/no value.

  • I have a SharePoint List named TSInfo Attachments. In this list, there are several columns with different data types. Among them, there is a Yes/No field called IsReceived as shown below.
PowerApps toggle yes no
PowerApps toggle yes no
  • In the app, there is a PowerApps Gallery control where all the data are retrieved from the specific Sharepoint list. Also, there is a toggle control i.e. present inside the gallery.
  • Now I would like to bind the Toggle control inside your Gallery to the “Yes/No” type column in the Gallery control.
Power Apps toggle yes no
  • To achieve this, select the toggle inside the gallery and apply the below formula on its Default property as:
Default = If(
    ThisItem.IsReceived = true,
    true,
    false
)

Where,

IsReceived = SharePoint Yes/No field name

NOTE:

To view the Toggle value from On to Yes or Off to No, you need to change it’s TrueText and FalseText property value.
PowerApps toggle yes or no
PowerApps toggle yes or no
  • Once you will save and preview the app, you can view all the SharePoint yes/no field values in the gallery control as shown in the above screenshot.
  • Additionally also, if you want to change the “Yes/No” type column value directly within the Gallery, then you can try the below formula. Select the Toggle inside the gallery and set the below code on its OnSelect property as:
OnSelect = Patch(
    'TSInfo Attachments',
    LookUp(
        'TSInfo Attachments',
        ID = ThisItem.ID
    ),
    {
        IsReceived: If(
            Toggle1.Value = true,
            true,
            false
        )
    }
)

Where,

  1. Patch = This PowerApps function is used to modifying the single or multiple records of a data source. To know more details, you can refer to this article: PowerApps Patch Function with examples
  2. TSInfo Attachments‘ = SharePoint List name
  3. IsReceived = SharePoint Yes/No field name
  4. Toggle1 = Toggle control name

PowerApps toggle visibility

Do you want to work with toggle visibility in PowerApps? Refer to these below simple scenarios to get some ideas.

Scenario – 1:

So what happens is, suppose you want to show or hide any PowerApps Control based upon the toggle values. That means if you will enable the toggle to on, then the specific control will be visible and if you will toggle to off, then the control will disappear in the app.

  • In the below screenshot, there is a toggle control as well as a label control. When I will toggle on the switch, then the label will appear and when I will toggle off the switch, then the label will disappear as like the below screenshot.
PowerApps toggle visibility
PowerApps toggle visibility
  • To workaround with this, set the below code on Label’s Visible property as:
Visible = tgShowHide.Value

Where,

tgShowHide = Toggle control name

Power Apps toggle visibility

Scenario – 2:

In this second scenario, We will see how a toggle control works depending upon a PowerApps Button control.

  • Let’s say there is a Toggle control and a Button control in the app. When a user will press the button, then the toggle will disappear and it will reappear again when again the user will tap on the button.
  • To do this, select the button control and apply the below formula on its OnSelect property as:
OnSelect = UpdateContext({cursel: !cursel})

Where,

cursel = Specify a variable name

PowerApps toggle control visibility
PowerApps toggle control visibility
  • Next, select the toggle control and set the created variable on its Visible property as:
Visible = cursel

PowerApps toggle button value

In this topic, we will see how we can work with the PowerApps toggle button value.

  • As you can see in the below screenshot, there are two button controls i.e. Click to On and Click to Off.
  • Here what I would ie to do is, when a user will tap the on button, then the toggle switch will be on and when the user will tap the off button, then the toggle switch will be off.

  • To achieve this, set a variable on the OnSelect property of the first Button (Click to On) as:
OnSelect = Set(varToggle, true)

Where,

varToggle = Variable name

PowerApps toggle button
PowerApps toggle button
  • Similarly, set the variable to false on the OnSelect property of the second button (Click to Off) as:
OnSelect = Set(varToggle, false)
Power Apps toggle button value
  • Now select the toggle control and specify the variable name on its Default property as:
Default = varToggle

Refer to the below screenshot.

PowerApps toggle boolean

In this topic, we will see how to work with the PowerApps toggle boolean. Let’s take a simple scenario.

  • In this scenario, there is a gallery control where each record contains one toggle control. Now I would like to count and display how many of them are on in the gallery.
  • As in the below image, there are total four number of toggles are true, so the result is displaying as 4 in the label control.
PowerApps toggle boolean
PowerApps toggle boolean
  • To workwround with this, select the label control and apply the below formula on its Text property as:
Text = "Total Selected Toggles: " & CountIf(
    Gallery4.AllItems,
    Toggle8.Value = true
)

Where,

  1. Total Selected Toggles: ” = This is the string that will display in the label control
  2. CountIf = PowerApps CountIf function helps to count the total number of items or records in a table that are true. For more details, you can refer to this detailed tutorial: PowerApps CountIf Function with Examples
  3. Gallery4 = Gallery control name
  4. Toggle8 = Toggle control name that present within the gallery. As I need all the true values, so I have specified the value as true. If you want to count all the false values, then you need to specify the value as false.

This explains how to work with toggle boolean in PowerApps.

PowerApps toggle button reset

  • Sometimes what happens is, we need to reset the toggle button control automatically. That means suppose you changed the toggle value to yes or no and then you navigated to the next screen.
  • So when again you will come back to the toggle screen, it will show us the same toggle value that you have changed previously.
  • In this case, we need to reset the control by default. It will not be like that someone will change it every time while moving to that specific screen. To do this, follow the below process and codes.
  • In the below screen, you can see there are two toggles where one is No and other one is Yes (that I have specified). So whenever a user will open the app or navigate the screen, by deafult the toggles will reset and appear with the same below image.
PowerApps toggle button reset
PowerApps toggle button reset
  • To achieve this, you need to create a context variable and then set it to both the toggles as:
  1. At first, create a context variable on the screen’s OnVisible property as:
OnVisible = UpdateContext({resetToggles: true});
UpdateContext({resetToggles: false})

Where,

resetToggles = specify a variable name and specify its value as true and as well as false

2. Select the Toggle1 control and set its Default property to false as:

Default = false

3. Select the Toggle1 control and set the created variable to its Reset property as:

Reset = resetToggles

4. Select the Toggle2 control and set its Default property to true as:

Default = true

5. Select the Toggle2 control and set the created variable to its Reset property as:

Reset = resetToggles
  • In this case, since the value of the resetToggles the context variable is changed (and momentarily becomes true), the controls will be notified that they need to be reset, and they do that by applying their default values again.

This is how to work with PowerApps toggle button reset.

PowerApps toggle button default value

Do you want to work with the PowerApps toggle button default value? Check out the below scenario.

  • Lets say there are some toggle controls in the app. What happens is, when I am opening the everytime, some of the toggle controls are “On” and others are “Off”. Now I would like to stay “Off” unless and until the user switches them “On”.
  • To achieve this, you can set a variable or do it manually. So if you want to this thing as manually, then there is a toggle property called Default where you can put its value as false.
PowerApps toggle button default
  • If you want to do it by using variable, then go to the OnStart property of the App and then apply the below code:
OnStart = Set(varToggles,false)

Where,

varToggles = Variable name that I have set to false

PowerApps toggle button default value
PowerApps toggle button default value
  • Next, select the toggle switch and set the created variable on its Default property as:
Default = varToggles
Power Apps toggle button default value
Power Apps toggle button default value

This is how to work with the toggle button default value in PowerApps.

PowerApps toggle button color

Do you want to turn a button into a different color when it’s pressed? Read the below things.

  • Since the toggle control has some color properties like Color, DisabledColor, PressedBorderColor, HoverBorderColor etc. By using these properties, you can change the color of your toggle control.
  • Also, if you want to change the color of the toggle itself, that means, when you will enable the switch, the toggle will change to your desire color and when you will disable the switch, then the toggle color will change as per your need. For this, you can use two properties named as True fill and False fill.
  • Alternatively, suppose you want to change the color of the button control while it’s clicking, then you can change the PressedColor (for the font color) and PressedFill (for the background color) properties of the button.
  • In case if you want to use the button as a toggle, so that anytime it is clicked it will change the color of either the button itself or another control. In this case, you can use a context variable.
  • For example, if you want to use the button to toggle the color of itself and another control (say, a text box), you would use those formulas:
Button1.OnSelect = UpdateContext({ toggleValue: !toggleValue })
Button1.Color = If(toggleValue, Color.White, Color.Yellow)
Button1.Fill = If(toggleValue, Color.Blue, Color.Green)
TextBox1.Color = If(toggleValue, Color.Black, Color.White)
TextBox1.Fill = If(toggleValue, Color.White, Color.Black)

Also, to get some more ideas, you can refer to this PowerApps link: PowerApps toggle button color

PowerApps toggle border

  • As we already discussed above, the toggle control has some border properties that you can use for only the design of the toggle borders.
  • Here is the toggle border properties: BorderColor, BorderStyle, BorderThickness, DisabledBorderColor, FocusedBorderColor, FocusedBorderThickness, HoverBorderColor, and PressedBorderColor.

Do you want to filter the gallery based upon the PowerApps toggle button? Let’s take some different kinds of simple scenarios.

Example – 1:

  • The below screenshot represents a SharePoint List named Products. This list has some different type of columns including a Choice column called Status.
  • This status column has some choice values as:
  1. Submitted
  2. Approved
  3. Rejected
  4. Pending
Power Apps toggle button filter gallery
Power Apps toggle button filter gallery
  • In the app, you can see there is a toggle switch and as well as a gallery control. When a user will toggle on the switch, then the gallery will filter all the SharePoint records and it will display only the records those status are approved.
  • Similarly, when a user will toggle off the switch, then the gallery will appear with all the Sharepoint records with all status values as shown in the below screenshot.
PowerApps toggle button filter gallery
PowerApps toggle button filter gallery
  • So to make it easier, we will create a PowerApps Collection where all the Sharepoint items will store and then we will use the same collection in the gallery to filter the records.
  • Here, I have created one collection on the screen’s OnVisible property as:
OnVisible = Collect(
    colProducts,
    Products
)

Where,

  1. colProducts = Collection name
  2. Products = SharePoint List name
  • Next, select the gallery control and apply the below code on its Items property as:
Items = If(
    tgShowApprove.Value,
    Filter(
        colProducts,
        Status.Value = "Approved"
    ),
    colProducts
)

Where,

  1. tgShowApprove = Toggle control name
  2. colProducts = Collection name
  3. Status.Value = This is a SharePoint Choice column name. That’s why we need to put .Value as well
  4. Approved” = Provide the value that you want to filter in the gallery

Refer to the below screenshot.

PowerApps toggle filter gallery
  • Save and preview the app. If you will toggle on the app, you will see all the approved records otherwise it will show all the SharePoint records.

Example – 2:

In this scenario, I want to filter a gallery control using a toggle button where it will only show SharePoint list items where a person column IsBlank.

  • So in the below SharePoint list (TSInfo Attachments), there is a person field named Book Author. You can see some records are containing its author names and some are empty.
Power Apps toggle filter gallery
Power Apps toggle filter gallery
  • Now in the app, there is a toggle switch and a gallery control. When a user will switch on the toggle, then the gallery will filter and display only the records that have only the blank authors as shown below.
Power Apps toggle control filter gallery
  • To workaround with this, select the gallery and apply the below code on its Items property as:
Items = Filter(
    'TSInfo Attachments',
    If(
        tgShowAuthors.Value = true,
        IsBlank('Book Author'.DisplayName),
        !IsBlank('Book Author'.DisplayName)
    )
)

Where,

  1. ‘TSInfo Attachments’ = SharePoint List name
  2. tgShowAuthors = Toggle control name
  3. ‘Book Author’.DisplayName = Since it is a people picker field, that’s why we need to put .DisplayName parameter.
PowerApps toggle gallery filter
PowerApps toggle gallery filter
  • Save and preview the app. Once you will toggle on the switch, it will display all the blank person fields and if you will toggle off, then it will display all the records those are having person names.

This is how to work with the PowerApps toggle button filter gallery.

PowerApps toggle value if statement

Do you need to work with the PowerApps toggle control value using the if statement? So there is already a tutorial present on the site that you can check: PowerApps Toggle If and learn how to use this in different ways.

PowerApps toggle onchange

Here we will see how to work with PowerApps toggle onchange. In this scenario, I would like to change a field value using the PowerApps toggle control.

  • In the below image, I have a Toggle switch and a label control. When I will tap the switch to on, then the label will appear with a string as “I am a PowerApps Developer” and when I will tap the switch to off, then the label will appear with a string as “I am a PowerApps Trainer“.
PowerApps toggle onchange
PowerApps toggle onchange
  • To do this, select the label control and set the below code on its Text property as:

    Toggle6.Value,
    "I am a PowerApps Developer",
    "I am a PowerApps Trainer"
)

Where,

Toggle6 = Specify the toggle control name

PowerApps toggle checkbox or PowerApps change toggle to checkbox

Do you want to replace the toggle switch with a checkbox control in the PowerApps Edit form? It’s so pretty and simple. Refer to the below scenario.

  • On the PowerApps screen, there is an edit form where all the fields are retrieved from a SharePoint list named TSInfo Attachments. There are three Yes/No fields in the form control that are appearing with different toggle controls.
  • Among three of the toggle controls, I want one toggle (i.e. Is It Valuable) to replace with a check box control. Also, there is a button (SUBMIT) that will help the user to save the data into the SharePoint list.
PowerApps toggle checkbox
PowerApps toggle checkbox
  • To replace the toggle with check box control, select the field data card -> go to the Insert tab -> select Input -> select Check box as shown below.
Power Apps toggle checkbox
  • Once you will replace the check box control, then two errors will appear in the control properties. To overcome that, select the field data card and set its Update property as:
Update = Checkbox1.Value

Where,

Checkbox1 =Check box control name

PowerApps toggle checkbox control
PowerApps toggle checkbox control
  • Next, we need to resolve the other property error of the check box control error i.e. Y property. Select the Y property and remove the code from over there. Just let it be blank. That’s it to do.
PowerApps toggle to checkbox
PowerApps toggle to checkbox
  • Save and preview the app. Enter the data in the PowerApps form including selecting the check box value. Then tap on the SUBMIT button. Now the entered data will store in the specific SharePoint list.

PowerApps toggle not working

  • While you are working with PowerApps Toggle control, normally we are setting the toggle value as ToggleName.Value. In that case, sometimes you may think that is it necessary to put the .Value every time or is the .Value is a valid argument?
  • And sometimes you may get errors also if you do not put the toggle control with .Value. And moreover, I can say, you can’t directly set the property of a control at the runtime. You can set a variable and then use a PowerApps If() statement to determine whether the Toggle is on or off. Let’s take a simple scenario.
  • In this scenario, there are two toggle controls i.e. tgFirst and tgSecond. So when a user will switch on the first toggle, then the second toggle will on automatically. When the user will switch off the first toggle, then the second toggle will pick up the default value (that you have applied).
PowerApps toggle not working
PowerApps toggle not working
  • To do so, select the second toggle and set the below variable on its Default property as:
Default = If(
    varSetToggle,
    true,
    false
)

Where,

varSetToggle = Variable name

Power Apps toggle not working
  • Next, select the first toggle and apply the below code on its OnCheck property as:
OnCheck = Reset(tgSecond);
Set(
    varSetToggle,
    tgFirst.Value
)

Where,

  1. tgSecond = Second toggle control name
  2. tgFirst = First toggle control name
toggle not working in PowerApps
toggle not working in PowerApps
  • Save and preview the app. Once you will click on the first toggle, then the second toggle will be on automatically and then the second toggle will pick up the default value.

As we all already know how we can add a toggle control to the PowerApps gallery. Now comes how we can perform the toggle inside the gallery control itself. Refer to the below scenario.

  • I have gallery control on my screen. This gallery has some toggles for each record as like the below screenshot. Now what I would like to do is, when the user will click any one toggle switch, then the rest toggles will be in disable mode. Refer to the below gif that I want to do.
PowerApps add toggle to gallery
PowerApps add toggle to gallery
  • To achieve this, we need to follow these below processes as:
  1. At first, we need to create a variable on screen’s OnVisible property as:
OnVisible = Set(
    defaultgalleryvar,
    true
)

Where,

defaultgalleryvar = Variable name

Power Apps add toggle to gallery
Power Apps add toggle to gallery

2. Then, select the toggle from the gallery and set its DisplayMode property to the below code as:

DisplayMode = If(
    defaultgalleryvar,
    DisplayMode.Edit,
    If(
        ThisItem.IsSelected,
        DisplayMode.Edit,
        DisplayMode.Disabled
    )
)

Refer the below image.

3. At last, select the OnChange property of the toggle control and apply the below formula:

OnChange = Set(
    defaultgalleryvar,
    false
)
add toggle to gallery PowerApps
  • Save, publish, and close the app. Reopen the app again and click on the toggle control from the gallery. You can see the clickable toggle will on and others will be in disable mode as shown in the above gif.

PowerApps toggle disabled color

  • Suppose you want to change the color of the toggle text. That means when a user will be on the switch, then the toggle text will appear in green color and the text will appear with red color when the user will off the switch.
  • To do this, select the toggle control and apply the below formula on its Color property as:
Color = If(
    Toggle11.Value,
    Green,
    Red
)

Where,

Toggle11 = Toggle control name

PowerApps toggle disabled color
PowerApps toggle disabled color
  • Also, if you want to change the color of the toggle itself, then, in that case, you can use the TrueFill and FalseFill properties as like the below screenshot.
TrueFill = Violet
Power Apps toggle disabled color

This is how to work with PowerApps toggle disabled color.

PowerApps toggle text disappears

  • So sometimes what happens is, the PowerApps toggle text disappears on the screen. The thing is the toggle level is appearing but it’s not showing because the slider object bounds tight around the slider itself and it is expanding the slider bounds revealed the label. That’s why we can not see properly.
  • There are two such toggle properties that you can use for displaying the text purpose. Such as: TrueText and FalseText.
  • If you will set any string to the TrueText property, then the string will display at the time of toggle switch on. And, if you will set any string to the FalseText property, then the string will display at the time of toggle switch off.

PowerApps toggle text disappears

This is the PowerApps toggle text disappears mean.

  • Let’s say there is a gallery control on the screen. This gallery control has some records (from the PowerApps collection) and each record is having one individual toggle control.
  • Outside of the gallery, there is a Button control (Reset Toggles) that will help to reset all the gallery toggle switches when a user will tap on it. You can refer to the below screenshot.
PowerApps reset toggle in gallery
PowerApps reset toggle in gallery
  • To workaround with this, select the button control (Reset Toggles) and set a variable to true and then false on its OnSelect property as:
OnSelect = Set(
    resetvar,
    true
);
Set(
    resetvar,
    false
)

Where,

resetvar = Specify the variable name

Power Apps reset toggle in gallery
  • Next, set the variable on the Reset property of the gallery’s toggle control as:

PowerApps toggle hide

  • As we know, we can show or hide any PowerApps control as per our instructions. Similarly, toggle control has the same Visible property where you can show or hide the control by your choice.
  • Always this Visible property returns the boolean value as true or false. If you will set this property value as true, then the toggle control will appear and if you will set as false, then it will disappear from the screen.

PowerApps toggle sharepoint list

Suppose you want to save or store the PowerApps toggle value in a SharePoint list. Follow the below things to achieve your needs.

  • As you can see there is a Text input control, a Toggle control, and a Button control in the app. A user will enter the attachment name, switch on/off the toggle as per their need, and then tap on the Save button.
  • Once the user will save the button, then the user entered data (including toggle value) will store in the specific SharePoint List.

  • For this, select the save button and apply the below code on its OnSelect property as:
OnSelect = Patch(
    'TSInfo Attachments',
    Defaults('TSInfo Attachments'),
    {
        Title: txtAttName.Text,
        IsReceived: tgIsReceived.Value
    }
)

Where,

  1. ‘TSInfo Attachments’ = SharePoint list name
  2. Title = SharePoint column name (Single line of text column)
  3. IsReceived = SharePoint Yes/No field name
  4. txtAttName = Text input control name
  5. tgIsReceived = Toggle control name

You can refer to the below screenshot.

PowerApps 3 way toggle

  • Before doing something, maybe in your mind, first, it comes what is PowerApps 3 way toggle and how we can use it in the app?
  • So as I researched some site links, many of them represented their views in different ways. Let us discuss one of them that I understood.
  • The below screenshot represents a PowerApps edit form where all the data retrieved from the SharePoint List (TSInfo Attachments). This form has three toggle controls (these are SharePoint Yes/No columns) i.e. IsReceived, Is It Satisfied, and Is It Valuable.
  • Also, this form has a master toggle control (Select All). When the user will switch on the master toggle, then all the toggle switches will be on and when the master toggle will off, then all the toggle switches will be off simultaneously.

  • To achieve this, first, we have to create a context variable on the Screen’s OnVisible property as:
OnVisible = UpdateContext({OffToggle: !OffToggle})

Where,

OffToggle = Context variable name

  • Next, select the master toggle (Select All) and set the same below variable on its OnSelect property as:
OnSelect = UpdateContext({OffToggle: !OffToggle})

  • Then, at last, we need to set the variable on each form toggle’s Default property as:
Default = OffToggle
