I'm trying to customize a form in SharePoint using PowerApps. I want to use the new multiline Enhanced Rich Text feature that enables users to click on a pencil icon in a default generated form in a list and edit the text in that field using SharePoint's text editor that comes with a Word-like ribbon. The problem is that as soon as I go to edit the form in PowerApps, this feature vanishes and the card is replaced with one that is single line text. I know I could modify it to use the PowerApps rich text editor, but my users absolutely hate that thing (and I don't blame them). Regardless, I need to hide a few fields from the default form, but I don't seem to be able to edit what the form displays using any other mechanism. So, am I stuck with either having this function they like in a form that has some extra fields I don't want them to see/modify, or a clean form with a feature they hate?
It seems like I should be able to replicate the function in PowerApps if I only knew what the code was behind that pencil icon control! Does anyone have any clues?
You will have to create the same effect in PowerApps
You can replace the default field with the rich text control field and an edit icon
When user clicks on that icon - you display the rich text field
Unless I'm missing something, I think that would give me the PowerApps rich text editor (the one I mentioned my users disliking), and not the Enhanced Rich Text Editor (pictured) that is available through SharePoint, which the default form uses when you click on the (also pictured) pencil icon.
Hi @AdamD ,
Do you want to use the Enhanced Rich Text Editor functionality as that in your SP List within your PowerApps custom form?
If you want to use the Enhanced Rich Text Editor functionality as that in your SP List within your PowerApps custom form, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.
Currenlty, within PoweerApps, if you want to edit text in Enhanced Rich Text mode, the Rich Text Editor control would be an available choice for you.
If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
