It is a powerful feature which allows you to inject variables, expressions directly into a standard string. It makes creating and formatting strings easier and more readable.
Used in programming languages. Also available in Power Apps and now in Power Automate Desktop.

๐Ÿ”ท Power Fx in PAD โ€“ ๐—ช๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ String Interpolation
="Welcome, " & vFirstName & " " & vLastName & ", " & "this is a nice update in PAD Version 2.41"

๐Ÿ”ท Power Fx in PAD โ€“ ๐—ช๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต String Interpolation
=$"Welcome, {vFirstName} {vLastName}, this is a nice update in PAD Version 2.41"

โ—Key points to note and benefits:
๐Ÿ”นString interpolation strings begin with a $
๐Ÿ”นUse curly braces {} to evaluate and embed the variable or expression
๐Ÿ”นBoth, normal text or interpolated strings can be used anywhere within that line of text
๐Ÿ”นNo need of any โ€˜&โ€™ operator, thus easy to read as well as write formatted strings.
๐Ÿ”นThis is applicable only for Power Fx enabled desktop flows (in preview). The "=" sign in the beginning is the Power Fx notation.

Below screenshot shows an output in ๐—ฃ๐—”๐—— using Power Fx โ€“ ๐—ช๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต String Interpolation

Check out my post for a sample on how Power Fx in PAD can be used.


This feature is released in the February update Version 2.41
