Hi Honeycode community, is there anyway or workaround to check first if there's a null value in my form before adding it to the sheets?
Thanks for your post! Yes, there's a couple of ways to achieve this
You can check if a field is empty either by comparing the user input to "" or using the ISBLANK() function.
For example, you can set up the visibility of a greyed-out button and submit button like this:
=$[UserInput]="" for the greyed out button's visibility:
=$[UserInput]<>"" for the submit button visibility:
Or you can use the ISBLANK() function:
=ISBLANK($[UserInput]) for the greyed out button:
=NOT(ISBLANK($[UserInput])) for the submit button:
Let us know if this helps!
You can see more examples of data validation here as well.
Hi @Alyssa Thank you for the help!! I was actually able to figure it out myself lol, I created a content box that will determine if one field is null or not. From there I created two log button similar to what you have done, one button will appear if there is a null field and when clicked a banner will appear saying that there's a null field. The other button will only appear if there's no null field and will continue to write the data when clicked! Thank you for the help!
That's great! I'm happy you figured it out
Thanks for sharing your method too I like that you added a message that will display if there's a null field.
If you'd like to take it a step further, we just released a new feature called conditional styling, with which you could change the style of an object (i.e. font or color of a content box) if certain conditions are met.
Just ideas to explore as you build Feel free to post again if we can help with anything else.
