How to enter information such as annotations in appsheet
There is no supported way to include comments within expressions.
Is there a place where I can input comments?
Some configuration elements have space for a descriptive comment (as below), but not all.
Some app creators have suggested using an IF() or IFS() expression to inject a comment:
IF( TRUE, desired-value, comment )
For instance, to provide a textual initial value of
Maintenance request with a comment:
IF( TRUE, "Maintenance request", "// The default initial value is Maintenance request." )
Because IF() results must be of the same type, you may have to cast the comment:
IF( TRUE, 41, NUMBER("// The default initial value is 14.") )
If you prefer, the comment can precede the value:
IF( FALSE, DECIMAL("// The value of Pi."), 3.14 )
You can produce a blank value with a comment:
IFS(FALSE, "// Blank value")
Here’s what this approach might look like in a more complex expression:
SWITCH( [Fruits by Letter], "A", ("Apple" & IFS(FALSE, "// A is for Apple!")), "B", IF(TRUE, "Banana", "// B is for Banana!"), IFS(FALSE, "// No more fruit!!") )
Thank you, teacher
If the new version can be annotated at the time,
That would be more perfect!
Another please discuss a lot of good methods?
