I just wanted to share a solution to working around the limitations of the built in Column Chart. For those unfamiliar, PowerApps only allows the creation of bar chart to have vertical data bars. This style is not very conducive to mobile screens that have a lot of vertical leeway.
Here is what is built in:
We want something like this:
Luckily, we can do just that but with using our reliable gallery control!
And there you have it! I personally put a thin black label with Width:1 to increase the visuals. Since this is a gallery control, you have even more freedom to add controls and to customize the chart.
Note: Make the gallery control big enough to hold all data points if you don't want the user to be able to scroll. If the gallery control is a little too small, the chart will look like a chart, but if a user scrolls on it, the data points move a little.
Hope this helps!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for your sharing.
I would also share this solution with other colleages.
