Today, in this blog we are going to learn how to “create” or “add multiple input text field dynamically” for item gallery without writing any code or without using any scripting language.

You can create multiple fields dynamically using of its own functions and some of your logic.

So let’s start:-I am assuming that you have to create multiple text box for each month for a given period of time, along with start and end date.

You need to first create a canvas app in powerApps and add “Gallery” by selecting from gallery template.

Add Gallery

Now create some collection with some data using powerApps function and write in a “onStart “section by clicking on App Start component. you can use your own data from any data source like SQL or CDS entities.

Clear(MonthBase); Clear(MonthSortBase);
ClearCollect(userItem,Table( {Id:1,User:”User1″,StartDate:”1/8/2019″,EndDate:”31/12/2019″},
ForAll( Calendar.MonthsLong(), Collect(MonthBase, {MonthID:Max(MonthBase,MonthID)+1 , month:Value}));
ForAll( Calendar.MonthsShort(), Collect(MonthSortBase, {MonthID:Max(MonthSortBase,MonthID)+1 , month:Value}));

Now add “userItem” collection on Item to show data in the gallery.

Add useritem

Then add an another gallery inside the gallery with one text filed.

Nested Gallery

Now write your logic on “OnVisible” Section by clicking on screen component for showing an input text field for multiple time.

userId: userItem[@Id],
StartDate: userItem[@StartDate],
EndDate: userItem[@EndDate],
DateDiff: DateDiff(
) + 1
UpdateContext({vOuterMax: CountRows(MonthBase)});
ForAll( UserDataCollect,
ForAll( MonthBase,
ForAll( colInner,
Collect( MonthTarget,
UserId: UserDataCollect[@userId],
RowId: colInner[@MonthID] + (vOuterMax * (MonthBase[@MonthID] – 1)),
monthId: If (
Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1)) <= 12,
Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1)),
Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1) – (12)) ),
monthName: If(
Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1)) <= 12,
LookUp( MonthBase, MonthID = Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1)), month ),
LookUp( MonthBase, MonthID = Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1) – (12)),month)),
year: If( (Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1)) <= 12), If( Max( MonthTarget,year) >= Year(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])),
If(Month(DateValue(UserDataCollect[@StartDate])) + ((colInner[@MonthID] – 1) – (12)) < 2, Max(MonthTarget,year) + 1,Max(MonthTarget,year))) } ) ) ); RemoveIf( MonthTarget, RowId > (DateDiff(
) + 1)


Then add collection name on nested gallery items to show the month field which are stored in the collection.

Add month item
Month Item

Save the app and click on run icon. You will see different text box for months.


You can create any type of field dynamically like this without drag and drop or without writing scripting code, Just create a logic and build it for your app.
