Rich Text Columns from SharePoint list

When I create a PowerApp based on my SharePoint list, my Rich Text columns are shown as plain text.

How can I change the Control to a HTML TextBox?

 

Same for editing.

Hi,

 

The multi-line text field displays HTML since the "multi-line text field" in your SharePoint list has an "HTML" format instead of 'rich text.'

 

So it doesn’t display rich text in PowerApps.

 

Thanks,

The current experience does not automatically bind the field to a HTML viewer control / does not provide a way to switch the card to use HTML viewer. Please add it to the ideas board if it does not exist already/vote up if there is one.

 

But you could achieve the same result by doing the following:

1. Select the control which you want to replace with HTML viewer. Navigate to View->Advanced and unlock the card.

2. Delete the label control inside the card and replace it with a HTML viewer control

3. Set the HTML control's HtmlText property to "Parent.Default"

How can I handle Rich Text in Edit Form in PowerApps?

I am looking for the same answer with regard to text input. I can display the input that is html with what is in this post, but not edit it. The HTMLText control seems for display only, not input.

I'm looking for the same feature to format text in the PowerBI app.  Did you ever manage to achieve this?

 

Thanks,

Dave
