List of Texts Contains Repeating Group's Current Cell Text

I think I must not understand how ‘contain’ works or something.

I have a To-Do list associated with a user (list of texts), and I have a repeating group with a text and a button. I am trying to do a conditional on a button where if the To-Do list contains the text in current cell, then the button’s color will change. I have tried it as I just describe it and also converting the list of texts to a string but no matter what, ‘contains’ will never be true.

Okay, I’m still stuck in this. I learned a lot of referencing text in repeating groups on page load and have since loaded the “Orchestra” plugin. I can now manually manipulate buttons like I want.

Unfortunately, I still have trouble when using ‘contains’. I’m even using REGEX and find and replace to get me just the text I want out of the list, using contains to match it to the exact same text. It shows “contains” = no which just doesn’t make sense to me.

Thanks for the help,
