Rotate icons

I read that this feature was rolled out, but I don't have access to it in my environment. Was this delayed?

This feature is available for most of the icons, but there are still some that do not support that new functionality. Basically, those that are "geometric shapes" or the old style back/next arrows (which are at the bottom of the icons list) still do not support rotation (or changing icons). You can also tell which ones support the new feature by the icon on the tree view (see image below). The first two (listed on top on the tree view, on the bottom row in the canvas) do not support rotation, while the other two (listed on the bottom of the tree view, on the top row in the canvas) do.

Thanks @CarlosFigueira 

 

I want to be able to change the quarter circle shape so I can highlight other parts of a circle. Is that possible?

Not directly today - I've created a bug with the team to address the icons that don't support rotation.

One possible workaround is to have some static images with different rotations of the circle, and choose between the images in your app. The attached app shows how this can be done (I've also attached the images in a zip file). To open the app, save the .msapp file locally, then go to https://create.powerapps.com, select Open, Browse, and find the file that you saved before.

The images that I used for that app (and that are attached) use SVG, so if you open the file in a text editor (such as notepad) you may be able to modify them, such as their colors. Granted, this is far from being easy to use, but it's an option while we don't have "native" rotation support for those icons.

Hope this helps!

Hi @UnitedLexAdmin ,

Do you want to customize the pattern of icons in PowerApps?

I'm afraid it's not supported in PowerApps currently.

I suggest you customize the pattern using other softwares and then upload it to PowerApps.

You could upload customize images by clicking File->Media->Image->Browse510_LI.jpg

And the insert an Image control, set its image property to your image's name.5102_LI.jpg

You could use it as an icon control. Set its OnSelect property to the formula that you want.

You can achieve this by overlaying the different circle icons on top of each other in clever ways. For instance, here is how you can show the different quadrants of the circle:

 

Top-right quadrant: Overlay the three-quarter circle on the full circle and set the three-quarter circle fill to the background fill.

Bottom-right quadrant: Overlay the half circle on the three-quarter circle and set the half circle fill to the background fill.

Bottom-left quadrant: Overlay the quarter circle on the half circle and set the quarter circle fill to the background fill.

 

Hopefully, this helps. I also hope rotating these icons is in the works.
