I am developing an app on PowerApp using an excel database that is shared on One Drive.
There is a column (Pictures) in excel spreadsheet (database) that I put the image link, but when I run the App in PowerApp does not appear the image (only shows the link).
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @Anonymous ,
Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.
The data structure of my Excel table as below:
Based above Excel table, I generated an app, the Excel table records displayed well within the Gallery as below:
Please consider re-configure your Excel table based on the the following article:
then re-generate a new app based on the new Excel table, check if the issue is solved.
Please consider add a Label control within your Gallery, set the Text property to following:
then check if the Label could display proper Image Url link.
In addition, please also make sure the Image URL link you typed within the Image[Image] column in your Excel table is a URL link without any authentication requirement.
What is the Image property of your picture control set to?
So, you need to look at the Image property of the picture control in your Gallery and see what the property is set to.
It should be set to ThisItem.Image[Image] based on what I see for your excel file.
So, in your Gallery, click on the picture control and then look at the properties for that and see what the Image property is set to.
Yes, so, I am guessing, your intention is to have the Image displayed that is referenced by the URL from your excel file.
If that is the case, then you will need to change that property to ThisItem.Image[Image] - again, the Image[Image] is what appears to be your column name for that value. If not, then adjust accordingly.
It would really be the same column name you want there.
This is all assuming that PowerApps sees your column name as "Image[Image]" as it appears in your excel file. If it has another name for it, then you will want to use that.
Can there be a delay for PowerApp to read the image?
Because I put Image (ThisItem.Image).
In this case, the column in Excel is "Image [Image]" have a problem?
Not really. But, you are only assigning a URL to the Image (through the information in your excel file), so it is at the mercy of all the hops that it has to go through to get the bits from the source server.
