Hide PowerApps Navigation Bar Permanently

Hi there,

 

I would like to hide the PowerApps navigation bar permanently for my app:

I have been using the "&hidenavbar=true" to hide it after I have launched the app, but I want don't want to do this everytime I launch the app.

 

If I modify the apps link with the above it does not find the app.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

If you modify your link as below, you should be able to remove the bar:

 

https://web.powerapps.com/webplayer/iframeapp?source=iframe&appId=/providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/APPID

Where APPID is the AppID string:

@s1hl3_ukuvuma 

If you're lanuching the App from within the PowerApp player/list, I don't believe there is any option to permanently remove it other than what you are doing. 

Here are two possible options:

1) Don't have people launch from the PowerApp panel - instead use the "Enable app embedding user experience" and embed your App in an HTML page with an iFrame.  There you can specify the URL with the hidenavBar=true set.

Downside is that you are dealing with an HTML page somewhere - not as convenient as the list.

 

2) Create another App to launch your primary App.  The new App would only do one thing...Launch(yourUrl)

Downside is that the "launcher" app, will not be replaced on launch (i.e. It would remain open as well - however, you could put a timer on it and then close it within the app)

 

Beyond that...I would only suggest putting a Idea in the idea forum here.  I did a quick search...I don't see any ideas currently that deal with that.

 

Hope this helps some.

Any idea as to when I use my app id, it displays the following message;
"That link didn't work. Please check it and try again.
Make sure that your web address is properly formatted and includes an app ID."

 

I have also attached the screenshot

Ah!

 

Yes formatting is important! As the error message says, it should have /apps/ on the end:

 

https://web.powerapps.com/webplayer/iframeapp?source=iframe&appId=/providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apps/APPID

 

Thanks for spotting that!

Hi thank you for this. This is working great except I believe there is now a change to the URI https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/embed-apps-dev

 

I've tried the new URI and getting the Nav bar. Do you have a solution?

Hey @VeeHa

 

Thanks for pointing that out - I've played around a bit with the URI and we can actually go back to using &hidenavbar=true again it seems:

 

https://apps.powerapps.com/play/APPID?source=iframe&hidenavbar=true

 

Cheers,

Sancho
