Hi, I have a datatable showing  data from a sharepoint list, How can i add  some icons to each row (like view or edit) and jump to a different screen to view or edit the selected row?

You cannot. Probably better to use a gallery so you can get the effect you want. As a rule I never use Data Tables. 

 

If you are feeling adventurous you can use the OnSelect event of the data table to display those buttons outside the data table. It is clumsy but possible.

Re: Add edit icon to Datatable

Hi @RussellGove,

 

Do you want to add a Icon control within the Data table control of your app?

 

Adding other controls within Data table control is not supported in PowerApps currently, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

More details about capabilities that are supported or not supported within Data table control, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-data-table#capabilitie...

 

 

Best regards,

Kris

Shane, your edx course and videos are super useful! Quick question, if you are not a fan of datatables, how do you display a list vertical with the ability to sort multiple columns. Lets say I have submitted multiple requests, I would like to sort by Status, request date etc., Any guidance will be super helpful. 
Thanks

Sure would be nice if there wer a functional data table control. it would ease development efforts and ensure consistency.

 

Is there a uservoice on this?
