Power Apps Text Concatenation: A Comprehensive Guide!


In the realm of Power Apps, text concatenation is a fundamental process. The blog sheds light on the various methods available to combine words and texts. From using the basic & operator to diving deep with the Concat() function, we journey through the ways to optimally join words in Power Apps.

People use the & sign or the Concatenate() method to combine words. For complex combinations, especially with groups, Concat() is better. Here’s a guide on joining words in Power Apps.

1. Combining text and using the & operator

Place two text inputs named TextInput1 and TextInput2 on the canvas, along with a label to display the result. Set it to: TextInput1.Text & " " & TextInput2.Text. This combines the text from both inputs with a space between them.

Use this code on text property of label 

					TextInput1.Text & " " & TextInput2.Text 

2. Using concatenate() function:

Use this code on the text property of  label 

					Concatenate(TextInput1.Text, " ", TextInput2.Text)
