Add field below selected radiobutton

In infopath it was possible to do the following:

So when you have radioboxes, you could show a description below the selected field.

I'm trying to recreate this in PowerApps but haven't found how to do this yet, is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Something like this? 🙂 

 

What I did was I changed the Radio control LineHeight to 10. Then I inserted a label on top. Not elegant by any means but lets you show things the way you had hoped?

I'd like to only show the description on the item that is selected, but I don't think that's possible, so your solution is a good alternative, thanks!

Let's not give up so easy. 🙂 

 

Check out this video on Conditional formatting with PowerApps. The way I implement the red error text to only be visible when you type a bad email could be applied here. Only show the label when  Radio1.Selected.Value = "Option1" = true. 

 

That is my quick hint without writing it all for your.

The problem is the amount of radio buttons in the control changes every time.

I tried adding the description to the radio button itself, but apparently with concatenate you can't add new lines, whitespace longer than 1 space gets removed.

Then what if you just have one label on the screen off to the side? Dynamically set it to show the description based on what was chosen in the radio button?

Yeah that's probably how I'll do it, would have been much nicer if I could do it like it used to be in infopath though 🙂
