Image Rotate

I'm having trouble saving an image with the new rotate image parameter, does it actually rotate the underlying image or do I need to save the ImageRotation value and apply that everywhere I need to view it?


What about saving to a collection, my image shows the unrotated version when looking at a saved collection with the image in it. I don't want to have to add another field to my collection, just want the rotated image to be saved.

Re: Image Rotate

Hi @chrisvdw,


Please take a try to add a Dropdown control, then specify the items property of the dropdown as below:


After that, change the OnChange property of the Dropdown as below:

UpdateContext({Rotation: Dropdown1.Selected.Value})

At last, specify the ImageRotation property of the image with 




Then change the Dropdown Value would be able to switch the image Rotation.

Re: Image Rotate

As i said the image does not retain the rotation when saved to a collection

Re: Image Rotate

The property only changes the image as it is displayed in the screen - it doesn't change the underlying image.


As of now, there's no way to retrieve / save the rotated image (which would something along the lines of a 'RotatedImage' output property in the image control). You can consider creating a new feature request in the PowerApps Ideas board for this.

Re: Image Rotate

I would save the rotation property in the collection also and use it when load the same image back in the gallery or wherever.


Collect(collectionName,{Item1:Value1,.....,Rotation : DropDown.selected.value})

Re: Image Rotate

This is helpful but @v-micsh-msft how do you reset the Image holder for the next image?  there is no OnHidden.  How can I update context in powerapps when the item is no longer visible?

Re: Image Rotate

You could add the extra collection field as suggested and make the image holder's rotation value tied to the value of that field.
Then each image would rotate as it needs to when displayed.
If the collection field is empty, the rotation parameter resets to nothing.
Also, a context is just a screen specific variable it can't be hidden.

Re: Image Rotate

@thenixo how would you put it on the collection?  It is erroring everytime I try.  My collection is ClearCollect(colAttachments,BrowseGallery1.Selected.Attachments)  I would like to add it to this collection but I could not get it to not error.


All help is appreciated!
