Visible/Invisible Column based on a selection in a previous column

Hi All - 

 

In Access, I was able to set a rule where in a drop-down list I selected "Other" another column would become visible and I was able to input text. If however, I chose "Option A" in the drop-down list, the column would remain grey and not editable. 

 

Does anyone know how to mimic this in PowerApps? Is there a formula I can input to do so? Here is a visual representation of what I am trying to do:

Thanks for your help,

Brandon

I am not sure about rules, as I do not use them.

However, you are easily able to mimic this by leveraging the Visible property of the second control (it is a control and not a column)

Just set the Visible property to something like:

Dropdown1.Selected.Value="Other"
