How do I record data not shown in my Edit screen?

There are some data that I don't want to be shown in the Edit Screen of my PowerApp but is calculated with some of the data that is being entered by the user and then will be shown in the app's Detail screen.


But if I don't show the controls for that data in my Edit screen, how can I get them entered automatically?

Does anyone understand what I'm getting at? Can anyone help me with that?

you could turn the TextBox to view mode instead of edit mode.

For my understanding turning the visibility property to false should work as well.


Maybe not for this case suitable, but generally you could check out the PATCH function.


Best regards
