Ability to style multiple form elements at once

Huge forms require sooooo much clicking when trying to apply style. Its crazy. Please create ability to select multiple form elements at once and apply style. 

 

Example

* Expand all form elements

* CTRL + left click on all labels in the forms

* Set their color property to "green"

 

Thank you

THIS. HAS. GOT. TO. BE. ADDED. SOON. 

 

Working on an app with 90 fields. Considering moving to Tahiti after this. Please please please enable multiple data card formatting.

Re: Ability to style multiple form elements at once

Hello!

 

   I know this post is two years old, but from what I can tell, the feature still isn't there. I have 133 fields on my form, so this is what I did:

1. Decide on one key card, adjust the styles there, and,

2. In all other cards, refer to that card.

 

For example, if the key card has "KeyCardVal" (for value) and "KeyCardLbl" (for key), then for each "Color", "Font", "Size" or other attributes in other cards, change them all to "KeyCardVal.Color", "KeyCardLbl.Font", etc. For 90 fields, it'll take a day or two to update all the cards this way, but once you do, then changing the one key field will update the colors, fonts, sizes and anything else in all other fields.

 

Good luck!

Re: Ability to style multiple form elements at once

I like it Steve. I've done this in the past too. 

 

Couple things to consider with this approach:

1. "A day or two" is a long time in PowerApps doing repetitive clicks (whew!) to change styling. 

2. Lord help you if delete the "Key Field".

  - I currently have no Undo option in PowerApps (some bug that has been going on a while).

 

Ideally:

- We get a multi-select option sometime soon to make this much easier, faster and safer. 

 

Alternatively:

- I have a colleague who used the PowerApps Theme Editor so that each control came in with the correct color right out of the box. 

  - Haven't tried this method yet, but looks promising.
