Power Apps grid control in Model-driven apps (Dynamics 365 / CRM)

Power Apps grid control is a new read-only control, now auto-enabled as part of 2022 Release Wave 1 for Model-driven apps.

We can also enable it by navigating to Customization, selecting the entity, then the Controls tab, and clicking on Add Control option.

Select the Power Apps Grid control.

Here we have enabled it for the Web.

The different properties that can be set for the control are –

  • Jump bar – this will be disabled by default.
  • Reflow behavior
  • Allow filtering

With Jump bar disabled –

Enable the jump bar.

After enabling the jump bar, we get the option to filter by alphabets.

It will also support Infinite Scrolling

We can use Edit Columns to add, remove and order the columns for the view

Edit Filters allows us to edit the filters.

Any changes made to the column or filter can be saved as a personal view.

Also, Grid remembers the context, here we have filtered the record by search text = “Blue”

Let us open the first record.

On navigating back, the context is retained.

We can also show and hide the Edit Columns and Edit filters option on views from Power Platform Admin Center >> [Environment] >> Settings >> Features >> Grid and Views section

Hope it helps ..
