Color and border properties in PowerApps

Overview

Configure the style of a control based on how the user interacts with it.

You can specify colors in many ways:

  • Color enumeration: Specify color names from cascading style sheets, as in these examples:

    • Color.Red
    • Color.Indigo
  • ColorValue function: Specify text strings such as color names from cascading style sheets and hex-code notation (#), as in these examples:

    • ColorValue( "AliceBlue" )
    • ColorValue( "#ff00ff" )
  • ColorFade function: Specify how faded a color is, from fully black (-100%) to fully white (100%), as in this example:

    • ColorFade( Color.Red, 50% )
  • RGBA function: Specify the red, green, and blue components of a color from 0 to 255, and specify an alpha channel from 0% (fully transparent) to 100% (fully opaque), as in this example:

    • RGBA( 255, 0, 255, 25% )

Color properties can also reference other color properties. For example, Label.PressedColor may be set to the formula Label1.Color, automatically cascading a change from one property to another.
