PowerBI tile background color

I have several PowerBI controls in an app and I would like them to have a background color. The tiles are Card and Matrix in PowerBI, I changed their background colors on PowerBI but when I insert them in controls in PowerApps,  they always show a white background.
How can I change the background color?

Hi @nanci ,

Did you set the tile's background by changing the dashboard's theme?

I've made a similar test and found the same problem like your description.

I'm afraid the dashboard's theme can't be used in PowerApps.

It also has some other limits, here's a doc for your reference:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-dashboard-themes#considerations-and-limitations

For now, you could only change the border's color in PowerApps.

I suggest you post your idea here:

Hi.

 

I had the same problem, and all the above comments are true, but i found an alternative solution.

 

If the background is withe color when you pin the report to a dashboard, what you need to change is the following:

 

1. On your desktop versión of Power Bi you need to activate every single "BACKGROUND" of all visualizations:

POWER BI 1.jpg

Change the color of your preference and set the Transparency to 0 (or at least do not let 100%).

 

2. Save and publish the report. 

3. Refresh the PowerBi website and you will see your Pinned dashboard report with the colors you set.

4. Try to use the same background of all your visualizations but you can test your creativity.

 

Tell us if this was usefull to you.
