Anyone would have an idea of how to trigger the OnChange event of a TextInput control wihtout pressing the ENTER key but by just modifying its content.
I want to use this TextInput control as a filter for a gallery and I want the gallery to filter as the user types characters in the text input control (wihtout having to press the ENTER key).
If the Items property of your gallery references the content of the text input control directly, then it will be filtered based on when the user is typing on it. For example, if you have your gallery Items property set to
Filter(MyDataSource, StartsWith(MyColumn, TextInput1.Text))
then you should achieve what you want.
Hope this helps!

Here is the example of the checkbox control:
I'm having a hard time finding some sense in this behavior... What's your (or others) opinion on this ?
