Submit button invisible until end of form or gallery

Hi All,

 

I'm setting up apps with forms that require the user to scroll down to enter more info. I currently have the Submit button on a custom DataCard at the bottom of the form. This works fine but I'm wondering if there is a more elegant way of doing it.

My question is: is it possible to hide the Submit button until the user has scrolled to the end of the form or gallery?

I'm not sure if more elegant, as I quite like your method, but you could have the Submit button outside your form and then check for IsBlank() in those datacardvalue items, in their order, and the first one that is false you'd use SetFocus to jump the user immediately to that field?

 

So pseudocode for the Button's OnSelect would be something like:

 

If( IsBlank(Item1.Text),
    SetFocus(Item1),

     IsBlank(Item2.Text),
    SetFocus(Item2),

    etc

    etc
    //else value

    ,
    Submit(FormName)

)

 

Could you give that a try and let me know how you get on?

 

Cheers,

Sancho

It worked but I agree. My original way is better I think 🙂
