Re: need big help in determining radio button usage

Hi @kumarraj88 ,


Do you have any data source involved for this table?  


It seems that you are trying to layout the radio control options horizontally. Please set the Layout propert of the radio button to:


Then set the Items property to:

[" "," "," "]



Then copy this radio button 2 times, insert the label controls in the place you want and with the text you need.

Re: need big help in determining radio button usage

Thanks for your reply. I am able to add three radio buttons, however the space between radio buttons is not available to change. Because if you see my previous picture it needs more space. 

How can I achieve that? 

2. as per the screen shot, I need to capture content 0f the left hand side and need to save that to SharePoint list. How can I save this field based up on LHS and top text?

As far as I know there is currently no way to change the spacing between the buttons. A quick, but quite ugly fix, is to enter some text in the items property instead of blanks, for instance you could put:

["In SOME interactions","In MOST interactions","In EVERY interaction"]

Then you change the text color to match the background color.


I couldn't find any "idea" for this, so I posted one so that we might get this feature soon.

As was mentioned by others, there is no way to currently set the spacing of the Radio controls.

However, there are other options.  Another one is to use a single radio control in a Horizontal Gallery and then, essentially, use that entire Gallery as your radio control.

Still, you always need something to "identify" with in the Radio control, so, setting the items to blank is not really an option if you expect to have a way to determine if a radio is "checked" or not. 

I have attached an example App (download, open an App in PowerApps, then click File->Open, browse for file you downloaded) that demonstrates the radio control in a horizontal gallery in your sample question list.

I believe it will give you what you need.  Take a look and adapt it to your own app or ask further questions if you run into issues.


I hope this is helpful for you.
