Onchange of TextInput

Hi!

 

Does anybody know why the onchange property of Textinput only fires when the user clicks on anypart of the screen, and not as soon as the condition is met?

 

Thank you!

PowerApps works just like Excel.  Until you move to another cell you are still technically in the process of editing the current cell.

 

Consider this example.  You are writing the word PLEASE into a text field. Typing each individual letter P-L-E-A-S-E does not trigger OnChange.  Instead, it triggers when the value changes from BLANK() to PLEASE.

 

Official MS Documentation Definition:

OnChange – How the app responds when the user changes the value of a control (for example, by adjusting a slider).  Wouldn't it be annoying if OnChange triggered as you were dragging the slider to its destination?  I think so.
