Model-driven form : embed canvas app

Hello guys,

 

In model driven app, when we embed canvas app, is there a way to make use the original button Save to save data in canvas app ?

I mean these button ->

as my embed canvas app actually occupied the whole form, and inside it there is some text boxes for user to input. It is looks weird when user can see there is button Save on the top, but can't use it. Or I don't know how. My current solution right now is to add a button in my canvas app to Patch those fields, but again it looks weird in user perceptive in why there are 2 save buttons.

 

Thanks,

Microsoft haven't provided any support to edit OOB ribbon button in model driven app. We can modify the existing js library but it is not recommended and is unsupported way (It will not work with canvas app formula).

 

Converging canvas app and model driven app using custom page is the latest feature that has been introduced. Hope microsoft provides more options to leverage.

 

Meanwhile, you can hide OOB button using ribbon workbench. Have your own button in canvas app to do the patching.

Hi @Axal,

You can edit out-of-the-box ribbon/command bar buttons with the Ribbon Workbench however in your scenario, it is NOT supported to leverage the model-driven form save event (and therefore the Save button) to save an embedded canvas app. Please see this feature request for more info and vote 🙂 https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/Ability-to-register-to-the-model-driven-form-sa...

Hi @Axal,

 

We can try using Ribbon workbench to achieve this

To find the OOB button right click and click edit command and create a custom command and populate the Same as OOB function.

 

Even though it's not supported but it's do-able

 

Please make as answer if it's helpful
