Hi @rarroyo1 

 

That is not an option on data table

only setting is can grow for column but that requires the width of your screen to be wide enough

 

better option would be to create a flexible height gallery and make it look like a data table

Hi @rarroyo1 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to enable "word wrap" functionality within Data table control?

 

Currently, the "word wrap" functionality is not supported in Data table control. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

As an alternative solution, I think you could create a Editable data table using Gallery control instead of the Data Table control. Then within the Gallery, you could add some Label controls to display the column values from your data source, you could set the "Auto Height"property of the Label to true, then the Label would resize its height based on its content.

You could also consider add some Text Input box within above Gallery, and set the Mode property to following:

TextMode.MultiLine     /* <-- Display content in multiple line mode */

More details about creating a Editable Excel table using Gallery in PowerApps, please check the following video resources:
