Freely moving Data Card

Hello everyone!

I'm building a powerapp connected with a sharepoint list.

 

I'm trying to move the datacard inside my app, in a freely way. This because I have the need to do something similar to:

"Hello, my name is <datacardinput>, it is a pleasure to meet you"

This is just a silly example to explain what I'm trying to achieve.

I already have diabled the new rendering method, but still it seems I'm not able to move those input.

Any way of achieving what I have described above?

Many thanks!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Can you explain more about what you are trying to achieve? Especially about what did you mean by "move data card in a free way". Did you mean that you want the users to be able to move the data cards' order while playing the app? If so, then I do not think this could be achieved. Data Cards can only be moved manually while in design mode.

 

Or did you mean that you just want to be able to edit the data inside each data cards? If so, then you just need to set the DefaultMode of the Form control to:

FormMode.Edit

And the OnSelect property of the navigation button to navigate to this Form page to:

EditForm(EditForm1);Navigate(EditScreen1, ScreenTransition.None)

Then you would be able to edit all the data cards inside the form.

I don't know If I understand the issue but here are my thoughts.

 

You can create a custom datacard and move in front of behind any of the SharePoint datacards that were created. Then inside the custom datacard you can add controls to display data like a label or text box.

 

If you are trying to modify an existing datacard by adding another control inside it then you first need to go to the advance properties of the datacard and unlock it.
