I have created a lengthy form. On my New form of powerapp, the focus of the form goes to the bottom or middle of form in all browsers but never to the first field. How to I ensure the focus remains on first field of form when the form is loaded? Asking users to scroll to the top to start filling form is not acceptable.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I cannot reproduce your issue. What is your data source? Did you created this app from blank? It seems that you have done some customization on the form, like the color. Can you share the related settings and formulas?
Yes I have done customizations. It a really long form with more than 100 fields..I have added colors to the rows and done conditional formatting on some fields. Example: a set of fields are visible only if the slider is checked, Nothing much other than that. No matter what I do, the focus goes to the bottom of form.
Actually I've used a simple work around:
I created a splash Welcome Rectangle. Once the App is started I set the intended Text Input Field on top of the splash screen. But I dynamically change the HintText to something descriptive like: "Click Here To Start".
Once this is clicked, th welcome screen disappears, the HintText in the Text Input field is changed to for example "Address" if this is an Address Text Input field.... and you can continue from here one. This way the enduser has unknowingly clicked the focused Control without explicitly selecting the control!
By using this method I've outsmarted this limitation.
