IconOverlay not displaying in New Experience mode


  • Hello,

    I have a provider hosted app that interacts with files in document libraries. Part of this interaction is setting the IconOverlay property when certain business rules apply. During testing with the "New Experience" I noticed that this property is no longer respected and the icon in the document libraries does not display the overlay. Has anyone else experienced this problem?


    Note: This issue also occurs when using in place records management. If a document is declared as a record, in classic experience a lock icon is shown over the file type icon, in new experience mode the checked out icon is shown over the file type icon for the document.

  • So this works with the classic experience? There are some features that aren't available in the new library experience.

  • Correct, setting the IconOverlay property works in classic experience and no longer works in the new experience.
