Validations and records of information from controls that are dynamically added

Hello how good I would like to comment on some doubts that I have about adding controls dynamically

 

1. How can I validate these controls that are being added dynamically?

 

*In the gif I show that the text boxes appear as the user writes in them, because they are asking me to do so, but when adding a new control again they all appear suddenly, there is some possibility to make this functionality that is at the beginning it is present in all the controls that are being added dynamically?

*The only formula that I use is a simple if in the Visible event of each text box that verifies that if the previous one is empty then it does not show it to me and otherwise it shows it to me=> If (! IsBlank (txtcausa.Text); true; false)

 

 

 

2. What would be the best way to store all these responses that the user enters in all these controls that are being added dynamically, is there a tutorial to store this in a sharepoint or in an Excel table?

 

Thank you very much for any information you can give me 😄

Things like that are usually set up using gallery controls and collections. I suggest you take a look at it. Keyword is "repeating tables". Using just hidden text inputs like you do is technically possible, but it will get really messy when you try to save them somewhere and have to validate which one is empty or not.
