Replace function and specific value for “in”

Forums Designer Building applications Replace function and specific value for “in”

    the replace function for calculations does not allow the usage of specific value for its third option “in”

    I was hoping to use replace to do the following

    replace [placeholder] with dataitemĀ in fixed text which includes [placeholder] in it

    so I can store this created sentence in a dataitem instead of having to recreate it over and over

    I know that you can do placeholder stuff on the fly in text boxes, but this a text I wish to display in a data table

    strangely enough if I declare the “in” to be another function such asĀ combine I can still create a fixed text using that

    example: combine fixed text which includes [placeholder] in with it

    So I was wondering why the “in” cannot be a specific text by default

    Hi EJ,

    I think that I know what you are looking for. I guess it is possible.

    The answer is in a template name Connie Contract. There is a trick explained how you can fill in these placeholders.

    Please search for the flowpart “placeholders apply” after you have loaded in the template.

    I’m not asking how to do replaces with placeholders

    I’m asking with this replace function

    replace

    has the following options for its 3 plus buttons

    first plus

    second plus

    third plus

    see that third plus is missing the specific value button?

    I am asking why it is

    I’m not asking HOW to use placeholders,

    I’m asking why the replace function does not allow it’s 3rd variable to be a specific value (see images)

    replace

    first plus gives

    first plus

    second plus gives

    second plus

    third plus gives

    third plus

    see that that third plus is missing the specific value button?

    Why is that? is what I am asking
