Show SharePoint Files in Browser

Hi,

 

I have an app where I get all the SharePoint Document of a particular record from Power Automate and collect those document in a Collection and show it in a gallery.

Now while launching each document, the document is directly getting downloaded.

I want the document to load in next tab of the browser.

 

This is the OnSelect Property of the button:

Launch("https://cloudfronts1.sharepoint.com" &ThisItem.ServerRelativeUrl)

 

Any help is appreciated.

Hi @tjalui ,

Could you please share a bit more about the "ServerRelativeUrl" column value?

 

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 Launch function works well to open a new tab to preview the file.

 

As an alternative solution, I think a Html Text control could achieve your needs. Please add a Html Text control inside your Gallery, then set the HtmlText property to following:

"<a href='https://cloudfronts1.sharepoint.com" & ThisItem.ServerRelativeUrl &"' style='text-decoration: none' color='red'>Launch File</a>"

then click the "Launch File" in your Gallery, then check if the file could be displayed well in your browser.

Hi @tjalui ,

I have always used

Launch('Link to item')

from the Gallery and they open in a Browser.

You can also go into SharePoint Library Settings > Advanced Settings > Opening Documents in the Browser and further set where you want them to open from there (not sure if this affects PowerApps).

 

Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.

 

 

As I am collecting this in Collection, I am not getting the 'Link to Item' options.

Hi@tjalui ,

If you Collect all fields in the Library, you will get this one.

I use this all the time on Photos and Word & Excel documents and they launch in a browser from a collection I make Filtered on the cross-reference to the list.

I used the HTML text control and it is working perfectly.
