Announcing the public preview of Power Apps component framework for canvas apps

Today we have reached an important milestone for Microsoft Power Apps: we are announcing public preview for Power Apps component framework for Canvas apps.

Power Apps components framework on canvas apps experimental release was announced in September 2019 and it introduced a way for professional developers to add reusable field type code components. With the public preview today we are adding support for data set components typesThese custom data set components can be configured against any canvas data set like SQL, Microsoft Excel and so on and are not restricted to just the Common Data Service.  Please note that the framework is already generally available for model appsMicrosoft Power Apps CLI is the tool to build, test and  upload these components to canvas apps.  Data set component support enables much richer scenarios like maps, calendars and Kanban board. With more than 1700 third party controls in production and hundreds open sourced via community, you can be sure to find one which either fits your need or provides a excellent starting template. You can find more information on the community resources here.


We are looking forward to many more components as we march towards GA.

Please use community forums and ideas portal for any bugs, feedback and suggestions. Our product engineering actively monitors these and it will also help us prioritize any critical GA impacting issues.
