Text - How to convert a character to its ASCII numeric value

There's no built-in function in Power Apps to convert a character to its ASCII value. This post describes how to carry out this task.

Why doesn't the BeginWith, EndsWith, and Contains operators work as expected?

The code completion suggestions in the formula bar can be confusing. In particular, the usage of the BeginsWith, EndsWith, and Contains keywords are not entirely clear, and some app builders struggle to understand how to carry out the required string comparisons. This post describes this behaviour, including the correct syntax to carry out these operations.
