SharePoint Online modern list Thumbnail not showing in PowerApps form

I am customizing the list form with PowerApps. The Thumbnail image is not showing in PowerApps. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.

Yes, you can still have that view.  

If you add your column as a hyperlink/picture you will have that image in Gallery view:

Yes, it would be good for them to get the Picture type column to work properly.  It's relatively new, so it will take some time.

You can now also use the Image column type in SharePoint online as Power apps will soon support the image column type from SharePoint Online/Microsoft Lists.

For the most part, you will only be able to view the Thumbnail.  

EditForms don't seem to select the appropriate property for the image to be viewed, so you have to alter it.

First, unlock your DataCard, then change the Default property to : ThisItem.'Thumbnail ({Thumbnail})'.Medium (or Large or Small depending on your needs).

You will then see the image.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Thanks for the suggestion, when updating the default value, I am getting an error:

    NewBee117_0-1606240416811.png

Here is the list view. The column header/name is "Image", which is not an option in the field list in PowerApps.

Yes, use the formula I provided:   ThisItem.'Thumbnail ({Thumbnail})'.Medium

Exactly like that.  ThisItem.Thumbnail by itself is not a recognized part of the Edit form fields.

I copied your formula and pasted it in, see below for error:

Two basic questions:

1) You are modifying the Default property of the DataCard?

2) The SharePoint list that you are connected to is a Document Library?

 

If you simply type ThisItem.thumb does the formula editor provide suggestions as to what the name should be?

 

My suggestion was based off of a Document Library with a Thumbnail column in it.  I just re-read through yours and saw the picture that you have an Image column...how is that defined?

1) yes

    NewBee117_3-1606245778628.png

 

2). No. it is a modern SharePoint list, and I used the "image" option to create that column. I would like to know what the image url is.

Gotcha!  Unfortunately, the Picture/Image column type is not supported in PowerApps that way.

Options:

1) You can store your picture as a picture in the Attachments of the list

2) You can store the Url to the image in another text column and use that to populate the image in PowerApps

3) You could create your list as a Modern Document Library and store the image directly in the library. The library will have a real (and working) Thumbnail column to use in PowerApps.  Note: You can also add the Image to your library list by adding a column to it called Thumbnail as a Hyperlink or Picture column - PowerApps can't use it, but it will display the way you had it in your previous picture.

Never mind.  I fooled myself.  I went in to double check what I was saying to you and thought it was working.  Turns out the column I was looking at was a Hyperlink/Picture column and not a Picture column.

PowerApps still does not support the Picture column as I suspected originally.

 

The options still stand as I mentioned, with one added:

4) Use a Hyperlink/Picture column in your list.

 

Sorry to get your hopes up.
