Property Description

Supports SetFocus as an InputEvent.

Using OnChange

When a date is selected, value can be obtained by the selectedDate output property. Below is a set of sample code which can be added in 'OnChange' property, depending on how to output need to be visualized.

Set(var_SelectedDate, If(!IsBlank(Self.selectedDateValue), Text(Self.selectedDateValue, ShortDate, Language())));
// Example - Output: 7/14/2022
Set(var_SelectedDate, If(!IsBlank(Self.selectedDateValue), Text(Self.selectedDateValue, LongDate, Language())));
// Example - Output: Sunday, July 3, 2022

Set(var_SelectedDate, If(!IsBlank(Self.selectedDateValue), Text(Self.selectedDateValue, ShortDate, "en-GB")));
// Example - Output: 14/07/2022

Setting Focus on the control

When a new dialog is shown, and the default focus should be on the control, an explicit set focus will be needed.

To make calls to the input event, you can set a context variable that is bound to the Input Event property to a string that starts with SetFocus and followed by a random element to ensure that the app detects it as a change.

Example Power Fx formula:

UpdateContext({ctxResizableTextareaEvent:"SetFocus" & Text(Rand())}));

The context variable ctxResizableTextareaEvent would then be bound to the property InputEvent property.


This code component can only be used in canvas apps and custom pages.
