Is this possible? (Search a List)

Is this possible? When I write apple in a textbox I got the row id of apple from airtable, When I write banana in textbox I got row id of banana from airtable.

What have you tried so far ? Are you trying to create a search textbox ?

I do not try anything because I do not know how to do this. No I only want to get rowId by its name

You can find it using index in list block


Can you show an example

Search for topic 6. Search for an item in Sajal's tutorial on Lists


Use the resources described here to help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .

AirTable has search capabilities in its API.
They document those table by table for you, after you create the table.

Hello @Faraz_Firoz! I am not 100% sure if this is possible with MIT App Inventor, but I found a similar question in the MIT App Inventor Community and it provides a good example with using airtable. In the example given by @ABG it shows you how to add data from airtable by pressing a button. Instead of pressing a button and adding data you could add different blocks (if textBox = apple then __) and extract data from airtable. I also suggest learning more about airtable and how to use it. Here is the link to the question: Inquiry about airtable I know I may not be helping much because I have not given you an answer, but I hope I was able to help anyways. I hope you find an answer to your question soon!

Thanks to all of you
