I want the value of what someone entered in a field to display elsewhere

Hi. I think this should be fairly easy, but I am a newbie so any help would truly be appreciated.

 

Using a Sharepoint Powerapps form.

 

I have an field where people can enter their name. After they enter it, I want it to appear in another part of the form.

 

I want this all to happen before they press submit.

Hi @cchan000 

To obtain the text you need, select the text input control that's *inside* the datacard.

By default, it'll be called something like DataCardValue3. You would obviously use the properties pane to find the exact name. You can then use syntax like DataCardValue3.Text to return the text that the user enters into the text input control.

Assuming your field where they enter their name is called: txtName

Add a label and set its text property to txtName.Text

 

As the name is typed in the the label will update automatically (even if on another screen).

hi. it didn't work, but i think i'm doing something wrong.

 

I used the datafield "ClientName"

 

i put it in the text label and entered "ClientName.Text" but nothing happens.
