Set the position of the button, fixed in the Form - If form scrolled down, button moves up

I have a powerapps form, where I have add button outside datacard in ViewForm, so that its clickable.

 

If I add button inside the datacard, it always becomes non-clickable in ViewForm. How to set the fixed position of that button ?

 

If i scroll down the form, the button goes up. I want to set the fixed position of the button. I adjusted X & Y for the button, but never gets fixed.

Re: Set the position of the button, fixed in the Form - If form scrolled down, button moves up

Hi @Kumar9024021 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want the Button outside the View Form to be fixed to the View Form rather than the View Screen?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I assume that you want the Button outside the View form to be fixed to the View Form rather than the View Screen, is it true?

 

I have made a test on my side, if you want the Button outside the View form to be fixed to the View Form rather than the View Screen, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

Actually, the X or Y property value of the Data cards in your Edit form would not be changed when you scroll down the View form, so you could not change the X, Y property value of the Clickable Button dynamically based on the X, Y property of any data card in your View form.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider add a "Custom data card" within your View Form, then add your Clickable button within this Custom data card, then you could execute the formula when you press the button.

After that, you could also re-order the custom data card in your View Form to a proper position.

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.

Re: Set the position of the button, fixed in the Form - If form scrolled down, button moves up

Thanks @v-xida-msft for the response . What should be the default mode of the form set to, for the button to be clickable.

 

I have set the default mode of the form to View. Hence its not clickable.

 

Should I set the default mode of form to Edit and change the display mode of all the fields to View ?

Hi @Kumar9024021 ,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think you have some misunderstanding with my solution. Please consider add a Display form within your app to view the details rather than use Edit form.

 

In addition, please make sure you have added a "Custom Data card" within your View form as above screenshot, then add a button within this custom data card, then type the formula within the OnSelect property of this button.

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved. In addition, please check if you have typed proper formula within the OnSelect property of the clickable button.
