Pen Input Reset


I'm having trouble resetting a PenInput Control.


  • OnVisible of Screen
    • Set(varReset, true)
    • Set(varReset, false)
    • Set(varReset, true)
  • Reset Property of ALL Controls on the screen set to varReset


  • All Controls EXCEPT the PenInput Control reset to blank when the screen loads.
  • PenInput Control still shows the signature


  • How do I get the PenInput Control to reset to blank?

Thank you!

Re: Pen Input Reset

Hi @ericonline,

Do you want to reset the Pen Input control when your screen loads?

The user @keshamer has faced same issue with you, the PowerApps Staff @mobaky has made a response to it, please check the response within the following thread:


As an alternative/temporary solution, you could consider take a try with the following workaround:

Set the Reset property of the Pen Input control to following:'


Set the OnHidden property of the screen which contains the Pen Input control to following:

Reset(PenInput1)   /* <-- PenInput1 represents the Pen Input control within your app */

Re: Pen Input Reset


I have the exact same issiue - and this solution no loger works for some reason. Is there a new way of reseting PenInput when screen is shown or closed ?


*update, It works - sorry for the mixup.


*update v2 

It works less than half the time - what is the reason ? can it be corrected ?
