Is there a way to set a fields max characters to move it to the next field?

Is there a way to have the "cursor" move to the next field when it meets its condition or Max Characters? 

 

e.g. I have 3 columns that require 4 digits each so the form opens and the cursor is on Field1 and the user enters 1234, at this time it then moves over to Field2 where he enters the next four digit code which moves the cursor to Field3. It just seems like the Max Length setting stops from more then the value you set it at.

 

Regards,

Keith

Hi, so far we don't have a functionality to programatically set focus in a field. However, this is a nice idea. You might want to add to PowerAppsIdeas.

There's one similar idea which is based on DropDown (currently under review). You might want to also add a comment to it with your example.
