Error trying to change display name on Powerapps Form

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to change the display name on form fields.  I followed directions I found in this forum -

 

"If you go to the advanced tab for the form and unlock the form you can click on the individual title for each card and change the Text value to change the display name."

 

When I try to change the text value (which is currently set to Parent.DisplayName) I get an error.  I can't find anywhere else to change the display name text.

I created a blank Canvas app, linked to a SharePoint list.

 

Thank you for any assistance!

I figured it out 🙂

 

I'm going to post the solution here, in case anybody else runs into a similar, easily fixed, error.

 

You must select the full card (including name field and input field) and edit "Display Name" in that option field.  If you click on and only select the name field you're editing the wrong thing.

 

oops!
