Text Input Control - auto height property required

At the moment if you have a text input control set to multiline, there is no easy way to make the text input box grow and shrink in height to accomodate the text entered. All that happens if you enter more text is that a scrollbar appears.  What is required is a "AutoHeight" property.


I think this is a fundamental requirement for a form.

Status: Under Review

Truly appreciate workaround provided by @mr-dang. Also adding @FilipK to comment on roadmap feasibility.


Thank you,

Bump.... This is relatively important feature when designing automated processes.

Like many really useful small updates to PowerApps, MS seems to focus on other things like portals, CDS, model driven apps etc.

Bump, this is clearly something that's needed and still hasn't been addressed!


Bump.... since the workaround doesn’t work when you have a input textbox and an auto height label on a flexible height gallery... the auto Height label keeps the text of the first input text when you change the datasource of the flexible Height gallery.

I have been very reluctant to start learning Power Apps, thinking that Microsoft has limited developers from using a DEV environment, besides the regular editor. 


Also, from past experiences, working with things like Power Automate, and dealing with tremendous amounts of frustration, I knew that Power Apps Editor won't be perfect, therefore I resisted even longer.


Eventually, I HAVE TO, create a Power App, because the SharePoint Lists are very limited when it comes to search and cascading menu. Therefore, I took some time to create one.


One of the first thing that I wanted to do is to make a TextInput with autoheight, searched and came across this article, which is from 4 years ago.

I appreciate all those that provided a input and even a workaround, however this shouldn't be the case. Not after almost 4 years.

This is MUST-to-HAVE feature which has been overlook for so long.


Please Microsoft, fix this.


Also, please polish your existing products and make us feel like you care.
