Banner URL Image

I am trying to display an event in a PowerApp, we want to display the event banner image in the app. Within PowerApps development, and browser this works fine and displays the image.

However on the mobile devices the image is not displayed - I thought that this was due to the size of the image downloading, but I suspect that this is not the case.

Is there a way to display the event banner image in a PowerApp on a mobile device?

As reference we are pointing the Image control image property to ThisItem.'Banner URL'

Re: Banner URL Image

Hi @AndrewCarter ,

 

What is the data source of this banner? SharePoint list or what? What is the column type? Please try to test with different image types.

Hi @v-monli-msft ,

 

The datasource is a SharePoint Events list (Calendar) OOTB the 'Banner URL' is a column in this list which is used when displaying Events within the Event WebPart.

Hi @v-monli-msft ,

 

The images are stored within SharePoint events list, the 'Banner URL' is Hyperlink or Picture type column.

@v-monli-msft,

FYI

 

I believe I know what the underlying problem is. When an Event is created and a page header image is uploaded, SharePoint copies the uploaded image and stores this in the Site Assets / Site Pages / Event folder in SharePoint.

With the Event list the 'Banner URL' column references this as the source of the Event header image, however this is a relative path rather than a full path.

 

Event Banner.PNG

 

 

 

 

 

 

Event Banner Path.PNG

Now while in the PowerApps studio this doesn't matter as the relative path is resolved, but when published and viewed on a device this no longer happens and therefore breaks..

As a solution / work around I guess I would have to have another Picture / Hyperlink column with a fully qualified path to the image (potentially stored in a CDN) I want to display and reference this in the APP

 

Regards,

 

Andrew
