I was wondering can Power Apps make use of data bound objects like the ones found in PowerBI.
specifically i was thinking about the synoptic panel visualisation. the use case I'm considering is car park booking.
What id like to do is import a plan of a car park into PowerApps and then define data objects inside the plan. I know I could create the carpark plan out of shapes, but this isnt ideal when there are alot of spaces
The user would be able to click on the space, see details, book the space if it was free.
Free spaces would be highlighted in green on the map.
I can almost do the whole thing in PowerBI but ideally i think it would be better contained in only PowerApps.
There can be two ways to achieve the synoptic diagram in PowerApps (Canvas Apps)
Using PowerApps Gallery control: You can use the out-of-the-box PowerApps Gallery control by little trick. Use the Vertical Gallery and select the 3 Columns layout for the gallery. You can control the number of columns in row using WrapCount property. Inside gallery put circle or rectangle and handle the fill color property based on the space availability and user selection. Create Collection based on carpark layout and bind it to the gallary.
Build PCF code component. This will give you lot of control over.
