PowerApps Screen Template

Good Afternoon,

 

A general question.

 

When adding a new screen, there is an option for portrait print or landscape print. how are these used ?

 

Many thanks.

You can set the orientation for the app as a whole:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/set-aspect-ratio-portrait-landscape and can create your app to be responsive:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/create-responsive-layout

 

You can alter the height and width of an individual screen, if necessary, although I have not found a need in my apps to do so.  If I create a dialog box, for example, I do it within a screen, not as a separate screen.

Thanks, but I am more interested in the print aspect, these screen templates are labeled as A4 Portrait Print (or Landscape).

 

Are these A4 Print screens designed for printing ? if so how is this accomplished ?

 

Thanks,

Direct print support has always been one of the biggest limitation in Power Apps.  There any many blog posts on ways to print, depending on what you need to print and your skill level.  Most of my print needs have been either tabular data or email type notifications.  The emails are easily handled from within Power Apps, or if you prefer, Power Automate.  For the tabular data, I use Power BI for my reporting needs.  I put a button in my app that launches the Power BI report.  From Power BI, I can print as either a PPT or PDF.  

You can also invoke Power Automate to do your printing for you or, if you are more of a developer type, you can use a PCF component created by Yash Agarwal (see also April Dunham's video on using the PCF control).  There are also third party APIs available that can help with printing.
