How do we use Breakpoints in a form / canvas app?

Hi there,

I was wondering if there's any examples of any canvas apps using the new Breakpoints setting to make the form responsive?

I have an app in progress that's currently 2 columns (in tablet size), but I want it so that when the window is sized down to BreakPoint=1 (phone size), I want the form to be 1 column. I also want to make some minor font and layout adjustments when the window is that size. 

If you have any examples or have any insight on how to do this (which is standard funciontality for any web or app-based editors this days)?

Re: How do we use Breakpoints in a form / canvas app?

Hi, thanks for your response. It doesn't seem to be working for me.  How do I know if these new responsive-related fields are available in my version of PowerApps?


I tried showing the app width and height on the canvas in the label, and even that's not working like it does in the example on that page when I resize the window.


Also, when I set the width of a rectangle as the code below, it doesn't scale when on vertical size:

Parent.Width * If(Parent.Orientation=Layout.Vertical, 1.0, 0.5)
