Does PowerApp support sharepoint Multiple line of text + Multiple line of text with "Append Changes to Existing Text "

I am working on a custom list inside SharePoint, and the list has the following field types:-

 

1) Multiple line of text

2) Multiple line of text with "Append Changes to Existing Text "

 

and i customized the list create form using power app, but i realize that the above 2 field types will be rendered as single line of text, instead of been a multiple line of text. is there a way to modify this?

The property name is Mode, you should use this code.

 

TextMode.MultiLine

 

Then set the Text property to whatever text you want to display

 

ThisItem.your_column_name

There are 3 options for displaying text in a Text Input control:

 

  • Single-line
  • Mutli-line
  • Password

 

Have you tried using Multi-line in DisplayMode = View to display the text?

Thanks for the reply, but i did not find where i need to change this property?

second point, my SharePoint field allow to add tables and images as it is of type Rich Text.. so does power app support adding images? and will the images got saved inside sharepoint?

Thanks for the reply, but i am not sure why i need to set the property as View, as i am customizing the create form ... so i think i should not use

DisplayMode.View

is this correct?

@johnjohn123
You are correct... I have revised my original answer. DisplayMode.View is not needed.

ok thanks, but when i add some multi-line of text >> save he item >> and edit it again >> the multiline of test will show HTML inside the field... now the field type inside sharepoint is RichText.. so any advice if i can fix this issue? or powerapp does not support RichText at this stage?
