1. Text input
Add a text input and set it to multiline and name it. In Our example, we set the text input to “SentimentFiled“. The text input value will be executed by the function “AnalyzeSentiment“
2. Execute the analysis
Add a botton adn set the OnSelect to the code, as shown.
The script will set the variable “sentimentOutput” with the output of the function “AnalyzeSentiment“
3. Show the overall analysis
The overall analysis has one result value that indicates the sentiment analysis. In addition to this value, there is a score of a value of 0 to 1 to indicate the likelihood of the result.
We can show the overall sentiment analysis result using the sentiment action. In our example the script is “sentimentOutput.sentiment”
The sentiment has one of four values as follows, based on the collected score of the entire text.
4. Add Icon to indecate the sentiment
Add icon to show the overall sentiment analysis.
In the icon and the color properties, use the “Switch” function to change the “Icon” and the “Color” of the icon based on the resulted analysis.
Switch icon code
Use the following code in the icon property. The switch function will replace the icon based on the overall AI Builder sentiment analysis in Power Apps.

Use the following code in the icon property. The switch function will replace the icon color based on the overall AI Builder sentiment analysis in Power Apps. Icon colors are Green for positive, Orange for neutral and red for negative.
5. Add galary for multi sentinces text.
When analysing a text with more than one sentences, AI Builder sentiment analysis in Power Apps analyses the overall text and each sentence of the text individually.
As mention above, the overall sentiment analysis shows “mixed” for the entire text.
Meanwhile, each sentence in the text will be analysed independently and values will be included in a table.
In the example, we added icon in the same way we did for the overall sentiment analysis using the switch function.
To present the sentences values, a gallery is added to the screen to show the break down of the sentences and the analysis of those sentences.
Below is the table of results of a given text. values are as follow.
- Offset – the index letter of the processed text of that sentence.
- Lenght – the letter counts of that sentence.
