Table input for users

Can we get the ability to have a Table as an input control? There are often times when it would be useful for our app users to input items in a datatable format for rather than a ‘Text Area’

Hi @p.laidler ,

Welcome to the community.

Yes, it is possible to have a table as an input control in UiPath. There are different ways to achieve this depending on the specific use case, but here are a few suggestions:

  1. Use a data table variable: You can create a data table variable in UiPath and then use activities such as “Build Data Table” or “Add Data Row” to populate it. You can then display this data table in a data grid control, which allows users to edit the data directly. To create a data grid control, you can use the “Data Grid” activity in UiPath Forms.
  2. Use a third-party component: There are several third-party components available for UiPath that provide more advanced input controls, including data grids and tables. For example, you can use the “DataTable Input” component from the UiPath Marketplace, which allows users to input data in a tabular format.
  3. Build a custom component: If you have specific requirements that are not met by existing UiPath activities or components, you can build your own custom component using UiPath Studio and the UiPath Forms designer. This requires some programming knowledge, but it allows you to create highly customized input controls that fit your specific needs.

Overall, using a data table variable and displaying it in a data grid control is a good starting point for implementing a table as an input control in UiPath. If you need more advanced features, you can explore third-party components or build a custom component.

This is coming soon.


Hi @p.laidler

Currently we don’t have a built-in input control specifically for inputting data in a tabular or datatable format. The available input controls in UiPath Studio are limited to basic input types such as text boxes, drop-down lists, radio buttons, and checkboxes.


We have a new control that is being built called “Editable grid” - that allows you to edit records in tabular format

Thanks very much! Is there an ETA on when this will be released?

Brilliant thank you. Can I check that applying for the preview only applies to the account that applies, or will it affect all app creators within the tenant?
