HTML Text control in PowerApps

I created a list in Sharepoint with an address field which is set to multiline.  I have now created a customised form in Powerapps for my users, but the address field does not display properly.  I have noted that I can add a new HTMLText field but simply cannot work out how to link that to my data and display it in the correct Datacard on my form (yes, I am fairly new to this).  It does feel like Powerapps is half finished if it cannot correctly detect that a field has been set for rich text and display it correctly.  I have an urgent need to get this working and it has been over an hour of slog to try to find the answer (which I haven't yet).

Can you share a screenshot of your form?

Re: HTML Text control in PowerApps

I think I have a similar issue.  I am using the Rich Text Editor field so I can embed an HTML table in the body of an email I will be sending with Office365.SendEmail() function.  It shows great in the Rich Text Editor not when I get the email the outlook client shows the HTML code instead of its rendition as it shows it in the RTE body, as such:
Rich_Text_Editor.png

 This is how I receive it in the email:

<table>
<tbody>
<tr>
<th>Vendor</th>
<th>Farm Cod</th>
<th>Item Code</th>
<th>Item Description</th>
<th>Qty Sold</th>
<th>Credit Qty</th>
<th>Reason</th>
<th>Box Code</th>
<th>AC</th>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Whatever whatever</p>

Hello Victore,

 

Are you using Office365.SendEmail function? If so, are you setting the email type to HTML (by using the ”isHtml:true”)?

You should be able to replace the Label control in your card by the HTML Text control. The HTMLText.1.HtmlText property would be set to Parent.Default. If you want to be able to edit the HTML text as well then the best way would be to replace the TextInput control by the RichTextEditor control.
