Hi @Anonymous,

Do you want to restrict the users to only enter values between 1900 to 2050 within Text Input control?

Currently, Validate functionality is not supported within Text Input control, so if you want to restrict the users to enter values between 1900 to 2050 within Text Input control directly, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs.

As an alternative solution, please take a try with the following workaround:

Set the OnChange property of the Text Input control (TextInput1) to following:

If(
Value(TextInput1.Text)<1900 || Value(TextInput1.Text)>2050,
UpdateContext({ShowErrorMsg:true});Reset(TextInput1),
UpdateContext({ShowErrorMsg:false})
)

Set the Text property of a Label control to following:

"Your must type values between 1900 and 2050."

Set the Visible property of the Label control to following:

ShowErrorMsg

In addition, you could also consider take a try to set the OnChange property of the Text Input control to following:

If(
Value(TextInput1.Text)<1900 || Value(TextInput1.Text)>2050,
Notify("You must type values between 1900 and 2050.",NotificationType.Error);Reset(TextInput1)
)

Hi Mahesh,

 

There is no custom Validation of Text inputs in powerapps at the moment unfortunatly.

 

You can set the input to only accept numbers as a first step.

Beyond that you can do a check within your submit button before you are allowed to Submit. I.E. Set the Display type to 

If(Value(TextInput1.text) < 1900 || Value(TextInput1.text) >2050,Disabled,Edit)

Acompany this with a Label, visible with the same Criteria as above, which says (Please Enter a year beweeen 1900 and 2050, for example) should be ok as a work around.

 

Thanks,
Nicky

Hi @v-xida-msft ,

I'm trying to replicate the OnChange formula in my app but it doesn't let me enter any number, it resets immediately to blank.

My code is:

If(
  Value(Calif1.Text) < 0 Or Value(Calif1.Text) > 10, 
  UpdateContext({ShowErrorMsg:true});Reset(Calif1),
  UpdateContext({ShowErrorMsg:false})
)

 

Could you please help?

 

Thank you very much!

 

Regards,

 

Fernando

I figured it out. For some strange reason, the Maximum Length property of the Text Input was fixed to 0, then I couldn't type any number. I restored this value to blank and now this solution works all right.

Thanks anyway.
