Welcome to the Complete Power Apps Modern Controls Guide
On this page you will find documentation on how to use all 13 of the Power Apps Modern controls. Every modern control property is described to tell you how it works. You’ll also find handy usage tips.
Why did I create this guide?
- The official documentation for each Power Apps modern control is not finished yet and I wanted a reference right now.
- I like documentation with lots of pictures to show what changing control’s properties actually does
- As the modern controls library expands I can give my own commentary on proper usage and limitations
I hope you enjoy the Complete Power Apps Modern Controls Guide

I Don’t suppose you’ve managed to figure out how to change the format of the modern controls Datepicker? It defaults to mm/dd/yyyy but in the UK we use dd/mm/yyyy…. There doesn’t seem to be a ‘Format’ property like in the old datepicker, so I’m not sure if it’s possible or not
Not yet. I assume it’s coming. These controls have been released in a bare bones state to get feedback. They will continue to be improved upon.
I thought that was the case, thank you for confirming 🙂
This may help. Look for Format under PowerApps Date Picker Properties.
dot NET 6.0 added options for customizing Date Picker formats.
Sorry, but that is referring to the classic Date Picker. Not the modern one.
At this point, you may be required to use a text field with a formula:
where “fr” is for France and the French format their date-times as dd,mmmm,yyyy
Set for Format setting of the DatePicker field to “dd/mm/yyyy”
Saw on twitter, this article is at the top of the search result for Power Apps modern controls. I checked all the controls, you have explained really well, with simple examples. Appreciated.
Thank you. My goal is to keep this guide updated as the controls are improved upon.
