  • 1.  Changing the default property values on newly created objects

    Posted 14 days ago
    I'm looking for a technique to change the default customize color and border properties of controls.  Templates provide preset controls, but do not alter the PowerApps default for new controls.   The same can be said for using dynamic properties.

    We are looking for a method for developers to build canvas apps without having to spend time changing properties of data cards, galleries, and other text/input controls.

    Hi Steve,
    Other than Themes there is no quick answer to this, I can tell you what I do, but "spend time" is certainly involved.
    At App OnStart, I define all colours I need as Global Variables - this includes shades and fills, which are generally ColorFade on the base color. I also at times define standard fonts and font sizes the same way.
    The go to your controls and change all the values. You can save a bit of time on things like drop-downs and combo boxes (as they a number of things to change) by copying them and changing the Items to suit. The great advantage once this is done is that you can change the entire app colour scheme with one variable.
