Re: Adding new line of text input

Hey @Big_S 

 

Currently powerapps does not support such a control directly but you can achieve it with a workaround approach. Please follow the steps:
1) You can create the Agenda section as a gallery and input Label, Text Inputs and button control to make it look like your form.
2) The local collection that refers to this gallery, can be initiated on page visible using:
    ClearCollect(AgendaGalleryCollection,{Value:1},{Value:2})
    Here, I have only input two values as your form has only two, you can add values based on your requirements.
3) Now Gallery Specifications:
    Items: AgendaGalleryCollection
    Label to show SNo: ThisItem.Value
    Two Text Inputs each for Description and Time Allocation.
    Button: 
        Text: :"Add"
        Visible: If(ThisItem.Value = Last(AgendaGalleryCollection).Value,true,false)
        OnSelect: Collect(AgendaGalleryCollection,{Value:ThisItem.Value+1})

Note: The labels for Agenda, Description and Time Allocation are outside the gallery.
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: Adding new line of text input

Hey @Big_S 

 

You have to write this Expression for ClearCollect on Screen property and not Gallery Visible, leave the Gallery Visible to true.
 
Place this expression on:
Click the Screen Name on Left menu items, go to OnVisible property and paste the clearcollect expression.

Can you confirm that data exists in your collection?
 
You can do that by navigating to View from Top Menu Item, and then select collections, then select your newly created collection, Please check if you have data inside it. I am guessing there is some issue with the collection creation.
