PowerApps 中的 UpdateContext 函数UpdateContext function in PowerApps

创建或更新当前屏幕的上下文变量Creates or updates context variables of the current screen.


使用 UpdateContext 函数创建上下文变量,该变量暂时保留一条信息,比如用户已选择某按钮的次数或数据运算的结果。Use the UpdateContext function to create a context variable, which temporarily holds a piece of information, such as the number of times the user has selected a button or the result of a data operation.

上下文变量的作用域限于一个屏幕,这意味着不能生成引用另一屏幕上的上下文变量的公式。Context variables are scoped to a screen, which means that you can't build a formula that refers to a context variable on another screen. 如果已使用另一种编程工具,可将上下文变量视为与本地变量类似。If you've used another programming tool, you can think of a context variable as similar to a local variable. 使用 Set 函数来处理整个应用中可用的全局变量。Use the Set function to work with global variables that are available throughout your app.

PowerApps 以公式为基础,这些公式会在用户与应用交互时自动重新计算。PowerApps are based on formulas that automatically recalculate as the user interacts with an app. 上下文变量不具有此优势,因此在应用的创建和理解上可能难度更大。Context variables don't offer this benefit and can make your app harder to create and understand. 使用上下文变量之前,请查看使用变量Before you use a context variable, review working with variables.


若要创建或更新上下文变量,请向 UpdateContext 函数传递一条记录To create or update a context variable, pass a single record to the UpdateContext function. 在每条记录中指定的名称,用于定义或匹配变量的名称以及要将该变量设为的值。In each record, specify the name of a column, which defines or matches the name of the variable, and the value to which you want to set that variable.

  • 如果指定之前已定义的变量的名称,UpdateContext 会将该变量的值设置为指定的值。If you specify the name of a variable that you've previously defined, UpdateContext sets the value of the variable to the value that you specify.
  • 如果指定尚不存在的变量的名称,UpdateContext 会以该名称创建一个变量并将该变量的值设置为指定的值。If you specify the name of a variable that doesn't yet exist, UpdateContext creates a variable with that name and sets the value of that variable to the value that you specify.
  • 如果之前已定义某变量,但未在这一特定 UpdateContext 公式中指定它,其值保持不变。If you've previously defined a variable but don't specify it in this particular UpdateContext formula, its value remains the same.

使用 UpdateContext 或 Navigate 函数隐式创建上下文变量。Context variables are implicitly created by using the UpdateContext or Navigate function. 无需显式声明。There is no explicit declaration required. 如果删除所有 UpdateContext 和 Navigate 到上下文变量的引用,则该上下文变量将不复存在。If you remove all the UpdateContext and Navigate references to a context variable, then that context variable will cease to exist. 若要清除变量,请将其值设置为 Blank 函数的结果。To clear a variable set its value to the result of the Blank function.

在创作环境中,可以使用“文件”菜单下的“变量”视图查看变量的值、定义和使用情况。You can see your variables' values, definitions, and uses with the Variables view under the File menu in the authoring environment.

使用变量的列名称可引用公式中的上下文变量。You reference a context variable in a formula by using the variable's column name. 例如,UpdateContext( { ShowLogo: true } ) 创建一个名为 ShowLogo 的上下文变量,并将其值设置为 trueFor example, UpdateContext( { ShowLogo: true } ) creates a context variable named ShowLogo and sets its value to true. 然后可通过在公式中使用名称 ShowLogo 来使用此上下文变量的值。You can then use the value of this context variable by using the name ShowLogo in a formula. 可将 ShowLogo 编写为图像控件 Visible 属性的公式,然后根据上下文变量的值是 true 还是 false 来显示或隐藏该控件。You can write ShowLogo as the formula for the Visible property of an image control and show or hide that control based on whether the value of the context variable is true or false.

如本主题后面的示例所示,上下文变量可保留多种信息,包括:As the examples later in this topic show, context variables can hold several kinds of information, including these:

  • 单个值a single value
  • 记录a record
  • a table
  • 对象引用an object reference
  • 公式的任何结果any result from a formula

上下文变量可保留其值,直到应用关闭。A context variable holds its value until the app is closed. 如果定义一个上下文变量并在特定屏幕上设置其值,则该信息保持不变,即使用户切换到不同的屏幕。If you define a context variable and set its value on a particular screen, that information remains intact even if the user switches to a different screen. 应用关闭后,上下文变量的值将丢失,重新加载应用时则必须重新创建该值。Once the app is closed, the context variable's value will be lost and must be recreated when the app is loaded again.

每个上下文变量的作用于限于一个屏幕。Every context variable is scoped to a screen. 如果想要在一个屏幕上定义上下文变量,但想要从另一个屏幕修改该变量,必须生成一个基于 Navigate 函数的公式。If you want to define a context variable on one screen and modify that variable from another screen, you must build a formula that's based on the Navigate function. 或者,使用全局变量。Or use a global variable.

UpdateContext 没有返回值,只可以在行为公式中使用它。UpdateContext has no return value, and you can use it only within a behavior formula.
