Powerapps Inline edit with horizontal scroll bar

Hi,

 

I am fairly new to PowerApps, I have explored Inline edit using text input fields which is quite good, however, I have more than 50+ columns and I am unable to add text input fields more than the screen width. I could find a way to get horizontal scroll bar which comes with Datatable.  

 

Is there a way to make Datatable itself as inline editable table?

How do I make the blank gallery screen width to accommodate more text input fields with horizontal scroll bar?

 

Can someone suggest me a way out here please?

 

 Thanks,

Praveen

Hi @myskyroute 

As far as I can tell there is no way to do this currently.  An idea has been submitted and a work around suggested here: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Horizontal-Scrollable-Screen/td-p/239031 .  

As an alternative, I created overlapping Edit forms and used buttons to create the appearance of a scrolling form. Annotation 2020-04-26 1116491.pngAnnotation 2020-04-26 11164912.png

Please are users going to fill the 50+ Textboxes, that is very huge. Can you find a way of reducing it for performance purposes.

 

You cannot edit DataTable as far as I know.

@eka24, yes for now, but it would be reduced to 25 - 30 very soon.

Is there any other way to accomodate my requirement of inline editable form in PowerApps?

Thanks!

Thanks @Drrickryp,
Appreciate your response. I will use this and test it out.

@myskyroute 

Just a warning, you will have to use Patch() to submit all of the items.  For new items

Patch(YourListName).Defaults(YourListName),Form1.Updates,Form2.Updates.Form3.Updates

For items being modified, replace the Defaults(YourListName) with a lookup to the item selected in the data table. 

If you use SubmitForm() Powerapps will submit the first form and reset the controls on the subsequent ones.  Your users will have a fit if they fill out all 50 fields only the ones on the first edit form are submitted and the rest of them are erased.
