Viewing SharePoint Documents in PowerApps

Hi all

 

Can anyone suggest a way of viewing SharePoint documents in PowerApps.

 

I know that this functionality has not been built in the PDF Viewer.  I have also found numerous different options to make this work, however have not been able to copy these successfully.

 

Has anything new developed recently?

 

Thanks

Emma

That is why I prefer putting my documents in a SharePoint List as an attachment. I haven't found GOOD ways of making the tools work with a SharePoint library either the ways I want.

 

This video has some good tips and ideas in it:

I've seen one other but I can't remember who made it.

I think you have to use convert the sharepoint files to Blob data through flow by JSON, and return the blob data back to PowerApps, then display it on PDF Viewer.

Sik

please make an example.

I've shared a link to the Power App showcased in the video in the blog. 

Hi, i've tried the formula in my app but struggling to make it work. In my App, i have three galleries.

 

Gallery One shows the first level folders in the Document Library.

 

Gallery Two shows the  second level folders within the First Level Folders in the Document Library.

 

Gallery Three shows the files within the second level folders.

 

How would i adapt the formula?

 

Thanks
