What is Live in properties

Greetings,

 

I just noticed a new property in the drop down menu - 'Live'.  The options for Live are:

  • Live.Off
  • Live.Assertive
  • Live.Polite

I cannot find anything in the documentation regarding this option - can somebody explain?

 

Thanks!

It's used in accessibility scenarios to determine how screen readers will read changes in the text. Take a look at the reference for the label control at https://docs.microsoft.com/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-text-box:

 

Live – How the screen reader announces changes to the label's text. Values can be OffAssertive, and Polite. This property is useful for announcing dynamic changes in the app's UI in an accessible way.

I saw it on label fields (maybe text also).

It is used for accessibility.
