HTML Text control in Canvas Power Apps | Power Platform

As simple as a Label control, but supporting HTML formatting to it.

That’s HTML Text control in Canvas Power Apps. Let’s see how you can work with it.

HTML Text Control

Just like a Label control, you can pick and use the HTML Control from the Insert Menu.

In my simple use case, I’m using this to show the Ticker Symbol field from Dataverse in HTML formatted label i.e. HTML Text Control.

  1. Select the HTML Text from the Insert panel and it will appear where you want. In my case, in Gallery rows to show some data.

  2. By default, it will show you default values before you can start modifying the same.

  3. Then, since my use case is to dynamically have data in the HTML Text control, I’ll use the Concatenate method to form my HTML String.
    My HTML string contains some static text and then adding dynamic data to it for each row.

  4. Now, once I run the App, I’ll see how the HTML formatting with enrich the text displayed.


Interactive elements below are not supported.

  • <button>
