Line break in Gallery

Hi, I've a PowerApp where the user needs to enter several numbers into one field... For each number one line:

Now when I display all items in a gallery, these numbers are shown as this:

buzzen_2-1647002984304.png

Is there a possibility to display them with line breaks?

 

Thanks

Hi, check if u are restricting the Label.Height to a specific number. Make it taller, because that might be the reason why thay don't show separated.

Hi, thanks for your reply... It's a gallery, no label... There is nothing like row.height or item.height... also not within the column itself...

But don't you need a label control inside the gallery to display the numbers? Can you share what's inside your gallery on the "Tree view"?

Ok, that makes sense now. I've never used the Table control. If nobody else answers your question I would try making a custom gallery and your problem having in mind what I said on the beginning and should be much easier to solve.

 

Have a nice one.

Hi @buzzen,

 

@fuzzy_fuzz is correct in that you can't show multi-line text in a data table column, as it is a limitation of the datatable control.

 

I agree with @fuzzy_fuzz that you should instead put them inside a Vertical gallery, with multiple controls in the gallery that each reference one of the columns you are trying to display.

 

Could you give that a try and come back to us - then either myself or one of the other community members like @fuzzy_fuzz can help you further 😀

 

Cheers,

@iAm_ManCat

Hi @buzzen ,

 

Maybe you could consider using a separator to make the entered numbers easier to display.

In addition, you could use the Split() function to get these numbers.

Unfortunatly I don't get it to work as you described it... I don't load the items with a button... Not quite sure how I should apply that to my table... And I already tried to use the replace or substitute function...

But no "linebreak" character is working....
