Form-like Auto-move

Hello, 

 

Can anyone think of a way I can get the "auto-move" feature of Forms with custom fields instead?

 

Example: 

  • No Forms, 40+ manually created form-like fields (dropdowns, text boxes, comboboxes, etc.)
  • Some fields have Visible Property controlled by other fields
  • Unfortunately, when these fields go "invisible", there is a gap in my form. 
  • I'm looking for a way to have other fields fill the gap 

 

Any ideas?

Re: Form-like Auto-move

Hi @ericonline,

 

I think you should be able to configure the size and location based on the Visible property:

Size and location properties in PowerApps

 

Location are defined as The distance between the edge of a control and the edge of its parent container (screen if no parent container).

 

So the location is a relative value for different controls.

 

For example:

If the X property of A control is:

12

and X property of B control is:
ControlA.X +16

 

And if Control B would replace A when invisible, the formula under the X property of control B should be:

If(ControlA.Visible=false, ControlA.X, ControlA.X+16)

Regards,

Michael
