Form-like Auto-move



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



  • 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?

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:


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)
