Gray text / suggestion-help text

Hello all,

Could anyone guide me to where can I put "help text" in this form? What I want is something like the grayed out text in the red box, and be able to put it in fields where value is empty.

What I want is, as shown there, to know **where** can I modify the "help" text, as seen in the grayed out font in the red boxes, so I can add it to the ones that do not have one such as the ones in green boxes.

 

Thanks in advance,

@FelipeCaruyou can't modify the Hint Text in the date picker. But, any text input control you have has a HintText property.  In that property you can put whatever Hint Text you want.

 

Hope that helps.

I assume this is a data form.  If so, go into the form and to that data card.  Unlock it. Then select the DataCardValuexx control - this should be a TextInput control.  It will have a HintText property.  You can set it directly there.

Hi @FelipeCaru 

@RandyHayes is correct - it's the HintText property that you need to set.

It occurs to me that you might be using PowerApps in Spanish, which might explain why you can't locate the property. In that case, the property is called Sugerencia.

I do not want to modify the date one, rather, have Hint Text in those that do not have it. Is it a property? By that, it is in the same place where I choose "Item" for properties and all that?

Thank you both so much. My problem was that I instead of selecting the box where user input data, was selecting the whole card and thus didn't see the "suggestion/hintText" option.
