I have a PowerApps form (customized from SP list). I need to only have a Submit button visible if the Current User is the creator (created by field in SP). Basically, I only want the person submitting the new form to see the button. Others will go back into the form and add content/approve...I don't want them to see the button.

I added the Created By field (datacardvalue49) to the form from SP, and I'm trying to reference it, but not sure how. I tried If(datacardvalue49 = User().FullName, true, false). I know I'm missing something after the datacardvalue (choice fields are ".selected.value", text fields are ".text"), but I'm not sure what that suffix would be.

thank you!

If you want to show the button based on condition, set "Visible" property of button control to:

User().Email = ThisItem.'Created By'.Email


User().Email = datacardvalue49.Selected.Email

If you want to compare based on display name, use:

User().FullName = datacardvalue49.Selected.DisplayName

To hide button you can use <> or Not() like:

User().FullName <> datacardvalue49.Selected.DisplayName


Not(User().FullName = datacardvalue49.Selected.DisplayName)
