Make Text DataField view or edit depending on the user

Hello,

 

I've created an Edit form. Now, I want to make text field View or Edit depending on the user who is logged in.

 

I've create a variable called OnStart called "varUserEmail".

Then, for one of the DataCard I've put it in the Visible field

"If (varUserEmail in ["Test@email.com", "Test1@email.com"],DisplayMode.Edit, DisplayMode.View)".

But it is not working. This formula is just making that data field non visible.

Please let me how can I achieve this function.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

The Visible property is to control if the data card can be seen.

If you want to change the display mode, you have to apply your formula to DisplayMode property.

I have made a test, and it work well.
