Popup text input for user to type in up to 500 characters

Hello guys,

 

I am wondering if this function is achievable within PowerApps. 

 

I have an embeded gallery and it contains a user input comment box. However, I would want this comment box to be able to pop up, so that the user can see their entire message as they type in (it might be a very long message, several lines), then close and save the comment box when they are done. I intend to have around one million of such comment boxes. (1 comment per 1 record)

 

Is this doable? Can I still use text input? or the pop up function will require something other function? Anyone have done similar things?

Hi @Anonymous ,

I'm afraid there's no control used for pop up window in powerapps currently.

As an alternative way, I suggest you use a multiple line textinput and set its Visible based on different situations.

In this way, the multiple line textinput will act as pop up window.

I've made a similar test for your reference:

1)in gallery insert a textinput  (looks like several small textinputs)

set the small textinput's OnSelect:

Set(var,true)

 2)insert a large textinput outside the gallery, insert two buttons one to exit one to save

set the textinput's mode to multiple

set the textinput's Visible:

If(var,true,false)

set the exit button's OnSelect:

Set(var,false)

set the save button's OnSelect:

Patch(tablename,Gallery1.Selected,{comment:Textinput3.Text});Set(var,false)

 Then, if you click the small textinput inside the gallery, the large textinput will shows. If you want to quit entering comment, you could click "exit", the words will not be saved, the large textinput will disappear.If you want to save the comments, click the save button, the data will be saved and then the large textinput will disappear.

If you want to the small textinput display the comment, you could also set its Default:

ThisItem.comment
