On-focus property

Is there any feedback on adding an On-focus property to a user input such as text input? This will allow to enable a specific control with an On-Visible event occurs, reducing clicks when using PowerApps.

Re: On-focus property

Hi @jacobs_d,

 

I'm not sure what you want to achieve with this property. Could you explain more with an example?

 

If you mean that when you start to type inside a TextInput control, it triggers the Visible event of another control. Then this could be achieve using below formulas:

TextInput1.OnSelect=UpdateContext({Var:true})
Label1.Visible=Var

Mona

Re: On-focus property

I mean, when one navigates to a screen, a text input on that screen will be activated. So a user can start typing without the need of first clicking on the text input. To enable this for a particular control i.e. text input, one should be able to enable an on-focus property using an UpdateContext variable in the scope of the screen.

Hello v-monli-msft,

 

Is there any express way to UpdateContext({Var:false}) when a object lost focus?

 

Best,

Re: On-focus property

I am also looking for this requirement. When end user press Tab button from keyboard and a next control inside the form is focused, a eventhandler is required to catch that event. 

 

Let me know if you have sorted out this problem.
