File and Image Control in UCI Model-Driven Apps for the Web

My first impression of the preview release of File and Image (with annotations) support in UCI model-driven web applications is pretty good.

Full details: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/preview-release-of-file-and-image-with-annotations-suppor...

 

The basic functionalities (such as upload, download, delete) work pretty well. The image preview can be expanded to full-screen dialogue window.

 

The annotation functionality in image control is also interesting. There are 4 things you can do with the uploaded image 

  1. Pen
  2. Highlighter
  3. Crop
  4. Rotate

with Undo action and 5 colours for Pen and Highlighter.

 

While annotating the image, I found that the updated image is uploaded to the record each time on every MouseUp event. I guess that is how the control works to prevent data loss but during the process, the information notification "Uploading an image to <field name>." show. That causes a bit of change in the position of the image because the notification bar pushes down the window. Sometimes, that is not a smooth experience to annotate especially when it involves a lot of mouse clicks.

 

Other nice to have features

  • Additional colours (especially yellow for highlighter)
  • Option to change the size of the tip (for pen and highlighter)

Just tried the image control editor for another time today.

I am impressed with the change of the pointer size for the highlighter. 😄
