Your form mode already is in Edit.  Your problem is with the field you are trying to add to the form.  If you cannot change the type from Ver Texto to Editar Texto, then PowerApps sees that field as read only for some reason.

 

Do you have a primary key on your table?  If you do not, then PowerApps will only treat it as read only.

Hi @Anonymous ,

To change a form to Edit mode, you just need to run

EditForm(YourFormName)

Your issue is you have ver texto for your control type.  You need to change that to editar texto.

If you cannot change it to editar texto, then it is a read only field in your datasource or you do not have permissions to edit.

@Anonymous ,

Off a button will do - you simply need to run it. If you are navigating to the screen, put it on the end of the Navigation code.
