Bind a form control to a custom components input propety

Hey guys,

 

I want to create a new custom component and bind a form to a custom property of this new component. The Problem is, I cant select any type like "form control". So I tried to use the dataset type. But when I want to bind the dataset like: 

 

{form: Form1}

 

 I get the following error message:

"expected a different collection record structure"

 

 So, what to do? I'm looking forward for your help 🙂

 

Regards,

Jan

Re: Bind a form control to a custom components input propety

Hi @JanMann ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to bind a form control to a Input Property of the custom component?

 

Currently, the Form Control Data type is not supported in custom Component within PowerApps. If you specify Record or Table as Data Type, you should specify proper Text value, Number, Boolean value (primitive type value) for these child attributes under the Record or Table data type (data set) rather than a Form control.

 

If you want to bind a form control to a Input Property of the custom component, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Re: Bind a form control to a custom components input propety

Thanks for your reply!

 

In my case I created a custom header component where I want the ability to toggle a "submit" button inside the header for forms outside the header. Thats why I want to bind the form to the input property. It's already possible for the "back"-button, because there was an option to bind a site, but not a form yet.

 

As you said, unfortunately it seems to be not possible yet. So I think I will post the request in the post behind the link you posted.

 

Thanks again and regards,

Jan
