OnSelect -> Tab -> Next Textbox Input

Hello Everyone!

 

I have made an App which has several Textbox inputs.

 

Can there be a button, when pressed goes to the next Text input box, instead of the user manually scrolling down, clicking on the Text input box and then typing?

Hi @NabeelNQ,

Do you want to tab to next Text Input box (made the mouse focus on next Text Input box) via pressing a Button rather than click the Text Input box manually and then type text?

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, there is no way to set the mouse focus within a Text Input box in PowerApps. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

As alternative solution, I think the "Tab" hot key in your keyboard could achieve your needs. If you want to tab to next Text Input box within your app screen, please click "Tab" hot key in your keyboard.
