Business value

By taking advantage of the Power Apps component framework, professional developers can now procure or build their own custom UI extensions for canvas apps.

Feature details

Power Apps code components are reusable, metadata-driven, and solution-aware so they can easily be packaged and moved across organizations to support multiple form factors. Once imported, any canvas app maker can simply add these components to their app, enabling custom functionality that is not available out of the box.

Public preview of Power Apps component framework allows developers and makers to add data sets and test their custom components in canvas apps, taking advantage of the growing list of supported framework APIs. Pro-dev extensibility on a low-code platform opens up possibilities enabling the best of both worlds.
