On Select 'hand cursor' at hover over

When hover over an Icon the cursor changes to a 'hand' sign, indicating you can press the Icom for an action.

1. When the On Select function is false the cursor still changes, but no action can be executed!?

2. When I set an On Select function (navigate) on a label field the cursor does not change to indicate the potential action.

Q: Is there a way to control the cursor change?

Re: On Select 'hand cursor' at hover over

Thanks 'timl' for your replay.

 

Yes, of couse not of use for mobile.

Also no use for text input.

 

I created a menu screen with 7 selections, where one can 'select on' the label field to navigate further. Just that.

For PC use the hand indicator cursor would be nice.

 

Of course is a workaround possible, but not straightforward.

 

Kind Regards

Re: On Select 'hand cursor' at hover over

Hi @uiterlex

In answer to your questions:

1. You can disable the 'hand symbol' that appears when a user hovers over an icon by setting the display mode property to 'view'. If you need to set this conditionally, you can write formula in display mode textbox in the advanced group of the properties pane.

2. As far as I know, there is no way to control the cursor on a label. However, you can set the hover color to a different color to give the label the appearance of a hyperlink.

Because PowerApps is designed equally for mobile touch screen devices where the notion of 'on hover' doesn't exist, the ability to control these types of settings is often limited. Another common issue is the inability to set the focus to a specific text input control on a screen.

Hi Uiterlex,

 

You can overlay your icon with a label which has the opposite visible properties of your icon's On Select boolean.

 

FYI, I recently had the opposite problem to yours - required a hand cursor for a label (within a gallery) with On Select functionality, and used an icon with full transparency to give the user the illusion that the label was driving the hand cursor change.

 

Hope this helps
