3.20022.19 - Missing Overflow/Wrap on Text Boxes in View Mode

In the latest release of PowerApps (3.20022.19), some design functions have gone missing from PowerApps SharePoint Forms 'TextBoxes' when in view mode. Particularily Overflow.scroll and Wrap. 


I was using these options in the previous versions and it was working in the current published app which has now 'broken'.


Any ideas on how to fix these?

Hi @z123 ,

Do you mean that the Overflow/Wrap property is missed within the Text Input box when you design your app in 3.20022.19 version?


Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think you have some misunderstanding with Text Input control in PowerApps app. The Overflow/Wrap property is not supported in Text Input box. The Overflow property is available in Label control.


When the Edit form is in View mode, these controls within this Edit form are all in View mode (DisplayMode property set to DisplayMode.View). So the DisplayMode property of the Text Input control (inside Edit form) would be set to DisplayMode.View, but the Text Input control itself is not changed.

Note: The original Text Input controls would not converted into Label controls when the Edit form is in View Mode.


If you want the Text value within the Text Box to be displayed in Multiple Lines, please consider change the Mode property to following:




When the Text value within the Text Box is more than the Width of this Text Box, the Scrollbar would be added into this Text Input box automatically as below:
