Refresh Image loaded from a URL

Hi,

 

I have created a Powerapps with an Image control named ImageX. The Image controls Image property is set to a URL from web. e.g., "http://www.houstontranstar.org/snapshots/cctv/314.jpg". The image file gets refreshed periodically. I want to know how I can refresh the image control on the powerapps screen. I tried setting the Image controls image property to the URL again on click on a button and that did not work.

I tried changing the ImageX.Image to a different URL but the image control does not get refreshed. Can you please help me to solve this issue?

 

 

Regards,

Mani

Re: Refresh Image loaded from a URL

Hi barcafan_mm,

 

You said that the image file gets refreshed periodically. Do you mean that the image will change to different image with the same URL from Web?


I would suggest you save the image on an Excel file, then place the file on a cloud storage account, then create an app based on the Excel file. You can show the images on a Gallery control, then use Refresh function to refresh the records of a datasource.
