Don't want the blue in my dropdown controls

Hello everyone,

 

I'm trying to brand my app and we don't want the blue color, or the theme colors, so I'm customizing our color palettes. This is going really well except for the drop down lists. They seem to want to hang onto the blue.... does anyone know how to get rid of the blue and replace with another color (like gray for instance).

 

Here is the drop down (from the template connected to SharePoint list):

Here are the colors shown in the advanced tab (but I can't find the blue) -

FYI the BorderColor is set to Gray:

Hi Audrieg,

 

It looks like you are using a Date Picker control. I add a Date Picker control in my App and try to change the blue to another color, but it seems that there is no related property can be used. This article about Date Picture control in PowerApps could be a reference:
https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/control-date-picker/

 

I also tried with a Drop down control, when I change ChevronBackground property of the control to another value, then blue can be changed to another color.

ah! bummer! Thank you for responding....maybe I can cover it with something. Have you seen the ability to add 'transparency' to fill colors anywhere? I might be able to soften the color by putting something white over it if so.

 

Thank you for your help,

Audrie

Here is an idea.  Since it is possible to change the chevron fill background color of a dropdown box, why not create a datepicker using a dropdown?  Of course, you would need to make an extensive list of dates, but it would be easy enough to create an Excel table that you autofill with a column of dates and bind it as a datasource to the dropdown.

 

That way, you could make customize the color in this instance....just a thought.

I know this is very late but for anyone else having this problem the correct solution is: in the "border color" option in advanced properties or with the formula bar erase the preset fromula( for me it was "If(IsBlank(Parent.Error), Parent.BorderColor, Color.Red") then use the hex color it should look like this "RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1)" but with your own color values.

Late to the post but for anyone who is wondering, to change the blue in the date picker you have to change the IconBackground.

 

Hope this helps!
