Custom form URL field

Hi

I'm having trouble following a description making a URL editable in a form. In the description the user has a drop down with alternatives in the field properties

Mine does not.

Is there a change that's been made or am I missing something?

Thank you

Re: Custom form URL field

Hi @MikaelJohansson ,

You can certainly edit a URL as long as the output is a valid URL. The Edit URL box displayed is the item to be chosen.

I will guess that you want the standard text input that PowerApps provides replaced with a DropDown.

To do this:-

  1. Unlock the card
  2. Delete the text box that is there
  3. Add a DropDown in the card and set its Items property to the required list
  4. Change the Update property of the card to DropDownName.Selected.xxxx (replace with the relevant output value - xxx being the field name/result/value) 

Happy to elaborate further if this is not what you are asking.

Re: Custom form URL field

Thank you. But what I realy want to know is why i don't get the pulldown view (shown in the red circle in first image) in my view (shown in the second image)
A bit frustrating that every help video or online course shows content that is totaly different to mine even though I am running the same version.

Hi @MikaelJohansson ,

Now I see what you are talking about - mine is the same.

Power Apps version changes regularly shift and change things then you have to find them again. As you have discovered, documentation is not always updated.
