“Self” or “This” variable

"Self" or "This" variable that references the current PowerApps element. Would allow formulas such as the following, for example:

ColorValue(Self.Fill)

Instead of requiring the user to reference the current element with a fully qualified name:

ColorValue(Label1.Fill)

This would allow users to re-use code and apply code changes across multiple elements simultaneously without having to modify them individually.

Status: New
Comments
Level: Powered On

This (sorry) may be confusing in a mature app where everybody has been used to doing all of this long-hand.  It would be a great help when writing code to implement things such as colour settings and positioning visual components relative to each other.
