Show data in table layout inside data card



I created an edit form to update some data, but I also need to show some things in a table layout. My though was to do this in a custom card inside the edit form. I thought of using a datatable, but that does not go inside a datacard, that just hovers over the edit form. Please explain to me what the point of this is?


Then I re-organized my screen a little bit to place the datatable next to the edit form. Placed my text in a temp table and used this for my Items property of my datatable. Next question: How can I manipulate the column heading of the datatable or change the column width? Changing the width with the slider only seems possible at run time?


Any other suggestions?

Re: Show data in table layout inside data card

Hi @SvenV,


The Data Table can't be inserted into a Data Card, as Data Card is used to display a field in a single record.

DataTable is used with tables (a list of records).


Data Table control in PowerApps

And yes, the size could only be changed in Edit mode.

If you would like to have the size be changed in App running mode, then please consider enable Autoheight.
