Apps' Dropdown behaves differently on Android

Hi PG:

 

Dropdown behaves normally, without showing BIG font, and within the box in Studio and Cloud (Win 10).

But when opened in Android (e.g. Asus, Samsung), the FONTs were enlarged to the whole screen. So, it the dropdown box is half of the screen width, the dropdown's words are mostly hidden.

 

Please fix the bugs or what happened? anything goes wrong with my setting?

Re: Apps' Dropdown behaves differently on Android

Hi Hpkeong,

 

What property did you set to your Dropdown control? What property had you set to Items and how many items were contained in your Dropdown list? To reproduce this issue, could you give your steps?

 

I created an App which had a Dropdown control, and I set its Items property. Of course, it worked well on PowerApps studio. Then I ran it on an Android phone, and also on an iPhone. There was no BIG font shown, it worked normally.

 

How about creating a simple App only with a Dropdown control in it? Please set its Items property, and try to run it on an Android phone, and check when you select the items in the Drop down list, whether the BIG font will be shown or not.

Hi Hpkeong,

                                                                

Thanks for your information, I re-set my Dropdown control’s property just as above, the result was that:
>In Preview Mode on Windows: when I clicked the Dropdown list, the box and the font were nearly same.
>In Preview Mode on IOS: box was narrow and when I clicked the Dropdown list, the font was enlarged.
And if the Dropdown list was set to half of the screen, when the Text’s length was over the box, the Dropdown’s word would be hidden no matter on PC or on Phone.

 

So, you could send a feedback to Microsoft using the Feedback icon. The Feedback icon was shown as a smile face on your App.
