I love a good out of the box solution to make something look more aesthetically pleasing in a Model-driven Power App (D365)

Model-driven Power Apps are improved visually with the Gallery Control on Views, most suitably with records containing images. The control enhances usability and engages users by modifying the functioning of editing and sorting on a view. Conventional controls are used on fields such as toggles for 'Yes No' fields or auto-complete fields. Something like the Power Apps Grid Control can be used for these modifications. A classic view displays rows of records and their associated data. For better aesthetics and usability, the Gallery Control is preferred especially when records have images.

  • Power Apps Grid Control is used to improve aesthetic and usability of views.
  • The control changes how editing and sorting function on a view.
  • Gallery Control is suited best for record types containing images.
  • The old-school method is used to add the table to the control's panel.
  • The Read-only Grid is the default control currently in use.
  • A new default Control can be added at this level, influencing all views for that particular table.
