How to show all spaces in a String

Hello Everyone:


Currently I met a problem when develop my application,In mysql database, the value of  one column has 2 spaces in the middle

of string, but When I  use gallery to select this record , I found that  1 space was missing, So how should I show all the  spaces

in the middle of string?


All the function I found is how to delete spaces......


Thanks !!!

it would appear that MS automatically strips out additional spaces when displaying data - and not just in PowerApps.


I set up a quick Sharepoint List and added some text with single, double and triple spacing in it.


PA shows then all with single spacing



Then, when looking at the same list in Sharepoint, I get the same single space...


However, when editing in Sharepoint, the true spacing is shown...


So, I suspect his is one of those lovely Microsoft "Features"...and you're stuck with single spacing. 😞

WOW, Thanks for your answer and test !


Personally I like this lovely feature of Microsoft, but in my case , there is no solution for that ?

Hope there will be a developer of PowerApps show up and help me out~

Put is as a development suggestion?


A "show as true" attribute on the text field perhaps?
