Handle blank textinput highlight unsaved form

Hi Experts

 

How to show unsaved changes for a blank text input control inside a form control

 

As when the user edits the form control textinput will be blank

 

If the user enters any text - border color should change and highlight unsaved change

 

But if the user remove what he entered, border color should change back to normal

 

Please advise

If it is just text, then on the Datacard BorderColor property, you can set it to:

If(Self.Default <> Self.Update, Red, Transparent)

This will give you a red border around the datacard.

 

If you want it only on the TextInput, then change the BorderColor property of the TextInput controls to:

If(Parent.Default <> Parent.Update, Red, Black)

 

You can change the colors you want in the formulas as you would like.  Make sure as well that the border thickness on those controls is 1 or more.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

@AshishJaiswal Set the BorderColor property of the TextInput to (rename theFieldName as required),

If(ThisItem.theFieldName=Self.Text, Color.Black, Color.Red)
