Re: String concatenate with new line

Hi

 

I have a series of Useful Features of PowerApps, and I remember it is No. 12, explain about how to use:

- Collection + Concatenate + Concate...to email with html format.

 

Hope it helps.

Re: String concatenate with new line

Hi

 

Would you consider using html textbox?

Although html5 is not fully supported (e.g.: Table is OK, but border not supported), most of the html5 syntax can be used in PowerApps.

Re: String concatenate with new line

Thanks for your suggestion.

 

My case:

---------------

I have a screen with set of TextInput boxes. On button click, I want to send a mail with values entered in the input boxes. In the mail, each value should be on a new line.

Re: String concatenate with new line

Okay, I can understand there is no direct way to a add concatenate new line with strings, we need to use a hidden HTML text control. 

 

Thanks for your solution.

Re: String concatenate with new line

Hi Perumal,

 

You can add a new line by using Ctrl+Enter in the formula bar, and new lines are perfectly valid withing quoted strings. Type the following formula for example:

"Hello" & "

" & "world"

 

Notice how there is a line break within the quotes.

Re: String concatenate with new line

Even though this post accepted a solution, for the record please note that you can append newline (CR) characters to any string.

 

    "new" & Char(13) & "line"

 

or:

   

    "new" & "

    " & "line"

 

If you need CRLF sequences instead, please use Char(13) & Char(10).

Re: String concatenate with new line

I'm finding that when I use the newline in the text box

 

"My title

Has 2 lines"

 

It looks correct initially. But when I preview the app or reopen the app, the line break remains in the fx field, but visually, the linebreak has been removed entirely.

 

Visual representation:

My titleHas 2 lines
