Every which way, except straight forward

Development of the support desk app within Powerapps has continued at a snails pace yesterday and today. I have been working away trying to resolve the user’s ability to move items up, down or removing from the top list.

The first task, tackling button visibility; I don’t want a user being able to interact with the up button when the top list item is #1, equally, when the item is either the last item in the list or #10 the down button should disable. Thankfully, Powerapps makes toggling off button status relatively easy; if only the rest of my coding this app were equally so.

When handling removing items it gets trickier, the user can remove from any point in the list requiring me to resequence the top list once more. Try as I may, I have not succeeded to do this within Powerapps these past two days, thus I have turned late this afternoon to flow for assistance. I am 90% the way there now, just needing to tighten the filtering I’m doing after SharePoint ‘get items’ as I’d forgotten to include a condition. Hopefully that should then get me over the line and allow me to get on coding the remainder of the app, this section has had way too much time, though security limitations are yet to be added.

Thank heavens for flow!
