When building your data views in PowerApps, the items can look a bit blended together. You can add separators, but things may still not look quite as nice. For example, a simple view of the data (in this case the contents of a list) may look like this:
This looks ok, but I would prefer to have each item be a bit more distinct.
Configure Your Data Cards to Look Like Data Cards
The process is pretty straight forward.
- Select the gallery you want to modify in the object list.
- Select the Fill property and then choose a colour. If your screen is full of entries as it is in the picture above, you won’t notice anything, because the data cards sit on top of the gallery and will cover it up.
- Select the Template Padding Property and set it to a value you feel works for your app. I usually choose around 10, but the choice is yours.
When this is all done you will have a much nicer (in my opinion) view of your data. It won’t seem quite as washed together as before and has the more modern card look to it.
Let me know what you think.
