Change the color of every card in a form en masse

Hi everyone,

 

I am building an app from a Sharepoint List and when I create a new form it automatically colors every component of every card to RGBA(101,128,187,1). However, I want to change the color of everything to match my company's colors. It's painstaking to go through every component and change the RGBA code for some of the long forms I am working with, furthermore everytime I remove/readd a component it reverts back to the default RGBA(101,128,187,1) code. 

 

I have looked for a more efficient way of doing this, but can't find anything. Is there a default property somewhere (maybe at the form or, even better, app level) that I can change once that will flow down the change to every card? Help would be much appreciated and save a lot of time!

I see that there is a custom theme idea request that you can vote on. It doesn't help you now but it sounds like a feature that PowerApps should have available. I just voted it.

Hi @GraysonBishop,

 

You may also want to check out this blog post by Veronica Ward that has some great design tips - see especially the "Linking Colors" section: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/design-guidance-linking-controls-for-easy-design-edits/

 

Veronica uses a HeaderRectangle fill property to link her other elements to, to get their colors. But you should also be able to use variables for your branding colors, similar to what @Audrie-MSFT did here: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/giving-consumers-color-and-text-size-configuration-option...

 

Does this help you at all...?

Have you looked at theme option in ribbon.

Thanks Jeff. I have looked there-- it only gives me other template options but I don't see the ability to create a "custom theme" or anything like that with my own color scheme

Hi @SandyU,

 

Thanks for those links. The first one is helpful in the longterm, but still requires going in and changing all the individual cards' properties at least that first time. This is definitely the best fix I've seen so far for grouping everything together.

 

Thanks!

Cool... Glad that helped, @GraysonBishop!
