advanced forms tabs clickable?

is it possible to make advanced forms tabs clickable?

 

I don't want the users to always click the next and previous button to navigate to their desired tabs.

 

I have an advanced form on view details page (no editing users just view data)

 

please advice experts

Hello @lira-toh.

There is no simple way to do this by configuration with advanced forms. Whenever I need this type of user experience I create custom navigation using HTML and JS with liquid. You could also create a script that makes the tabs clickable, but that wouldn't be very good for accessibility. 

 

I made a blog post for you that describes how I usually create forms with clickable tabs using basic forms and pages: https://ulrikke.akerbak.com/2021/10/20/clickable-tabs-navigation-for-power-apps-portals/

 

Hope it helps. 

 

All the best, Ulrikke

liratoh_0-1635159157080.png

to access the data I click (view details or edit) on a record from the entity list and then the clickable tabs list open, but when i view the forms i get the above error. pls guide me on how i can carry the selected record ID through out all the form from the tabs. 

The table permission are done, i think the ID get lost while navigating around the tabs.

 

Pls assist.

 

thank you in advance

@UlrikkeAkerbæk  i found out wat the problem was, on my basic form i was using the id as record source type, i changed to "record associated to current user" and now all my forms are retrieving data.

 

Can you provide  a sample code snippet of how to do this? Where would you paste the code in powerapps?
