BUG Empty Person field is not updating upon record changes

I have a gallery and a form (view mode) on the same screen.

The form will display detail information such as department, people (type of Person in SP), description, etc. associated to the selected i made in the gallery.

 

What I've noticed is the Person field does not honor empty value. Here is an example.

Assuming I have the following data

Gallery item 1, Form person value is John Dole

Gallery item 2, Form person value is empty

Gallery item 3  Form person value is Mary Jane

 

When I select item 1 in the gallery, It will display John Dole in the form, when I select item 2, the form will display John Dole (instead of emtpy). When i select item 3, the form will display Mary Jane. If i select item 2 next, it will display Mary Jane instead of empty.

 

Please fix it.

Re: BUG Empty Person field is not updating upon record changes

I just tried this and it works fine. I have one screen that has a gallery and a display. I am using a list with a Person/Group field on it and some of the items have a user value and some don't. When I select an item that has a person then that person gets displayed in the form. If the next item I select doesn't have a person listed then the form doesn't display a value for the person field. I thought I might be able to find a work around to your issue but I can't reproduce it.

Re: BUG Empty Person field is not updating upon record changes

Hi @HelloWorld,

 

I also cannot reproduce your issue. My Display Form Items property is:

Gallery1.Selected

 

And when I select one item that does not have any value in People and Group column, it would show empty in Display Form:

What is the formula of the Item property of your display form?

Mona

Thanks guys for checking. I tried to recreate the issue again but couldn't. So what I did was replace the form with a new one and the issue seem to go away.
