Can PowerApps input drawings

Hi All, 

 

Looking to develop an App with the following parameters and I am not sure if PowerApps can do this. 

 

1. User uploads a drawing of a building site  

2. User then defines 'zones' on top of the drawing - These are rectunglar or circle shapes on top of the zones 

 

The rest of the functionality I am comfortable with in terms of colouring of the zones and adding actions to them but just not sure if we can create an app where a user can draw and define zones on an uploaded picture. Essentially, we want to give them a drawing tool for boxes.

 

Thanks heaps!

 

Cheers,

Re: Can PowerApps input drawings

Hi @wen90 

Unfortunately, there isn't a control that enables you to edit or draw on pictures that you've uploaded.

The closest thing I would suggest would be to superimpose a PenInput control over your image. This would allow the user to draw over your image with a pen control. The pen input control doesn't provide shapes, such as rectangles or circles.

You can save the image from the pen input control into a separate image. In terms of displaying the modified image, you can attempt to merge the original and pen input control images using some process outside of PowerApps. Alternatively, you can superimpose 2 image controls ontop of each other. The topmost control would display the pen input image, and you can set the transparency value of this control to allow the user to see the original image that's beneath.
