Hi @LYNCHJL ,

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I agree with @eka24 and @WarrenBelz 's thought almost. You could take a try with them to achieve your needs.

 

As an another solution, I think the IsMatch function could achieve your needs. Please consider set the Fill property of the Text Input Box to following:

If(
   IsMatch(TextInputBox.Text, "Type Specific Word Here", MatchOptions.Contains),  // Replace TextInputBox with actual control name in your Edit form
   Color.Red ,                  // changed bg color
   RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1)    // defualt background color
)

 

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.

Hi @LYNCHJL ,

I have tested mine on a model and it works - I have no doubt the others will also (there are many ways of doing the same thing).

Please tag whoever you want any further clarification from.

Hi @LYNCHJL ,

In the Fill of your Text control - substitute your word, control name and colour.

If(
   "YourWord" in YourTextBoxName.Text,
   YourColour,
   White
)

 note this will only show once the filed has been entered.
