Drag Control

Hello,

 

I have a text label on my app. I want the user to click on the text label and drag them to whatever place they want.

Is there a way to do this? If not, is there anyway to let the user move the text label while viewing the app?


Thank you

Hi @Field 

 

There is currently no option to drag and drop or move controls for users of PowerApps

Re: Drag Control

Hi @Field,

 

I suppose you could create and initialize a collection of x and y coordinates with unique identifier for each movable control, then have two slider controls or two number text controls that represent the x and y coordinates and then use a dropdown to select the movable control you wish to edit and update its coordinates with the two sliders or number controls.

 

If you only need to move a single label then you could have a button to hide or show two sliders that represent the min and max coordinates of the screen and assign their values to the X and Y coordinates of the label.

 

So it is possible for a user to move the controls though it is a bit clunky when executed.

 

Regards.
