Change the Color of the Switch in the app designer?

54 views (last 30 days)
I am using app designer and I would like to change the color of the switches. Available switch options were 'Rocker Switch', 'Toggle Switch' and 'Switch' but neither of them has a .Color attribute.
I know I can use a lamp instead to display the status of the switch but I would like to change the color of the switch if possible.
Or I would like to have 'On' or 'Off' but only one of the two visible when the switch is in either of the states.
Thanks in advance!

I added a lamp on top of the switch at the "on" position that is visible only when switch value is "on". works nice.

Love this idea, but how did you do it? Whenever I try to drag a lamp onto the switch, the switch gets replaced.

Then you can't click the lamp to turn off the switch, but you have to click in the gray area. Does it have the same behavior for you too?

Currently we do not support Color property for Switch components. I have brought this issue to the notice of the concerned people and it might be considered for a future release.
