How can I add a vertical custom card with vertical text align label?

My customer wants to add a vertical textbox (label). How can I do it? See the screenshot below. We want to add HR USE ONLY box.

There currently isn't any way to rotate a label.

You might want to consider using an image as a workaround.  

 

Go into your favorite place and rotate text how you want it (like Word) then snip a snapshot of the text into an image and save it into an image file.  Then import that into your PowerApp and use it where you want through an Image control.

 

Hope that helps.

Re: How can I add a vertical custom card with vertical text align label?

Randy,

 

I have added the text image. The problem with this method is that the text will always stay at the top of the screen and I would like it to move with other controls after I scroll down the form. Are there a way that I can do it?

 

Thanks,

Pei

@ppeiare you putting the image in your Gallery, or in your Form?  Not sure from your picture what you are using.

You should be adding the image to the control that hosts your other controls, not directly on the canvas.  

 

However, if none of the above apply to your situation, then you can always move the image with the labels.

For example, you have a Title label in the picture - you could always "tie" to that.

   yourNewImage.Y = TitleLabel.Y

   yourNewImage.X = TitleLabel.X - yourNewImage.Width

 

Really all depends on your layout.
