Setting a datacard value from another datacard, as you type

I am trying to recreate the functionality observed when going through the "New SharePoint site" wizard.  

There are fields for Site Title, and URL.  As a user types in a desired title, the URL field is populated and updated to reflect every character typed into the title field, except that white spaces are stripped out.  


I am working with the fields SiteTitle, and DesiredURL

As user types in their sites title, I would like the DesiredURL field to auto-populate with a suggested URL, based on title, but with all whitespace removed.


How would I go about recreating this?

Re: Setting a datacard value from another datacard, as you type

You could use this code to join the URL path and remove the white space. Replace your_url_path with the appropriate text string. Put this code in the Default property of the DataCardValueURL. your_url_path should be something like "


your_url_path&Substitute(DataCardValue_Title.Text,” “,””)

Re: Setting a datacard value from another datacard, as you type

Hi @bavaughan ,

Could you please share a sample url about the DesiredURL that you mentioned?


Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the the Concatenate function could achive your needs. I assume that the SiteTitle you typed is PowerApps, and the DesiredURL you want to generate is ''.

I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Set the Deault property of the DesiredURL Text Box to following:

Concatenate("", Substitute(SiteTitleTextBox.Text, " ", ""))


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