Re: ¿set focus? The Open the App

Hi Mateo_Escobar,

 

I test this issue on my side and am trying to figure out a way to put the cursor at the text box.


But finally I found that it seems that we don’t have an available property that can be used to set the cursor.

 

As a workaround, I consider to enter a comment in the Text input control when navigate to a screen.


I set the OnVisible property as: UpdateContext({note:"Please enter you value at here"})


Then set the HintText property of the Text input control as note.


Then when navigate to the screen, the comment would be shown on the Text input control.

Re: ¿set focus? The Open the App

Hi Mateo_Escobar,

 

Please consider to use OnVisible property of the Screen control.


OnVisible means how an app responds when the user navigates to a screen.

 

Please check the documentation for a reference:
https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/control-screen/

 

Please try if this property works for you.

Hello @v-yamao-msft,

Any news on that? It would be nice if we could have a feature like this.
Focus, on the desired control when opening the app or when we navigate to a screen.

Thank you
