Dynamic columns in table or grid view in canvas app

Just want to check if this is possible or not .

Is there any property for auto generate columns or any way to achieve below requirement.

 

I would like to a create a dynamic table view / grid view in PowerApps.

 

1 .I have a table in data verse with 10 columns and want to view the data in table / grid view in PowerApps

2. In future additional 5 columns will be added to the table in data verse and i want to view those columns in the PowerApps without modifying the PowerApps.

The PowerApps should automatically read the additional columns and render the new columns.

 

If required can maintain other table to decide what columns can be visible or hidden.

Hi @Hetvik ,'

It is not possible to either dynamically create columns or view new columns without coding Power App to do this.

Hi WarrenBelz

 

I didn't get the result .

Approach 1 : tried querying the table got in collection and removing the unwanted columns ,but dropcolumns function only accepts hardcoded string names for columns ,so this approach didn't work as i would know the column names at runtime
