Hide screens

Hello,

Is there a possibility to hide screens in Powerapps?

 

I want to collect data with an Powerapps app. Depending on a selection the user makes different data is needed.

The screens could be hidden/shown depending on this selection.

 

Currently i can't see a possibility to influence a screens visibility state.

Would be nice to have...

Please use the Navigate() and Back() functions to navigate to and from the screens you define. These functions can be used in behavior properties (actions), when you can also consult user input (selection in dropdowns, etc) and manipulate other data. If a screen is never navigated to, it will be "hidden" for all practical purposes -- only the author will ever see it, never the app user.

 

Please see the navigation reference:

I am unable understand your requirement. PowerApps by default shows the first screen, when the user runs it. Depending on the action on the screen, the user is navigated to various screens and user can't directly goto a particular screen of his choice, there is should be some action to navigate. Are you trying to hide controls on the screen based on the data?

Some minutes after writing the post this also came to my mind.

But thank you for answering.
