It would be nice to be able to rotate the label control - like you can rotate the image control in increments of 90 degrees.
For some reason, I feel that this community is poorly managed. Or at least, the PA support staff doesn't really look over the ideas posted. (Just so they're listening, which I doubt. But feedback!) But hey, at least your idea is added to PA.
Adding @FilipK for PA controls
Hey @JohnP @Anonymous, Thank you for your patience on this response. We try to respond to the awesome ideas, and don't always make it to all of them 😞 But please know we do consider and include these ideas when we go to plan what to tackle next to make PowerApps better for everyone. Appreciate this submission.
One work aroudn for this is to use a HTML text control and use inline css.
for example the HTMLText property can be set to:
transform: rotate(-90deg);position: relative;'>
Hi This is Vertical Text!
Anthony, Do you have any workaround ideas to do this on an icon?
I imaging the same approach of using HTML could be used to rotate an image (icon)
<img id="image_canv" src="/image.png" class="rotate90">
You could drive the rotation using formula if needed.
another solution is to use the Image control and put dynamic svg image text. then set the ImageRotation property to "Rotate270"Image:
"data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'%3E%3Ctext x='80' y='30' font-size='20' text-anchor='middle' alignment-baseline='middle'%3E Pretty in the middle!%0A%3C/text%3E%3C/svg%3E%0A"
Would be nice if this were in increments of 45 degrees, or completely arbitrary. 90 degree rotations aren't as readable as 45 degrees, for example for column headings.
Planned 2.5 years ago ... nothing happened. Go figure!
