BUG: Gallery in Data Card disappears when Collection is Cleared

I know @CarlosFigueira mentioned earlier this year that embedding a Gallery in a Data Card is not supported functionality (though it is/was possible), but I now have an unworkable snag. Wondering if anyone can help. 

 

Scenario: 3 types of Controls in one Form (repeating-input fields, Gallery, remaining Form fields)

 

  • Form has repeating-input fields
    • User enters values and adds them to a Collection for Patch later
  • Gallery displays repeating-input values so user can delete before submitting
  • Remaining Form displayed for completion

BUG:

  • Once the Collection is cleared, the Gallery will NOT repopulate with entries. 
  • The Gallery must be Cut and Paste back into the Data Card to be rendered. 

 

I know the issue is difficult to articulate and I hope I'm clear enough. The goal is to have a smooth User Experience where repeating-entries, and the ability to edit them before submission, are required in a Form


Thank you

@CarlosFigueira Can you take a look at this when you get a minute?

Here is another user with a use case (and a bug) with Gallery in Data Card. Might be of use.

I'll try turning off Enhanced Rendering and see if it helps.

Hi @JonathanWest

 

When trying to Refresh(collection), I get the error "Only managed connections can be refreshed". Looks like maybe this command is not for Local Data only external?

@ericonline I'm personally keeping an eye on this for you.

Turning off Enhanced Rendering has (so far) alleviated the issue. Please consider Galleries embedded in Data Cards when making Enhanced Rendering part of the app rather than optional. 


Thank you

Hi @TopShelf-MSFT 

 

I have just built a very elaborate gallery which sits inside a datacard, I experienced this bug and had to switch off components, enhanced rendering etc. 

 

I can see that enhanced rendering will be out of preview soon, is there a known workaround for this bug, or do you have any insight on whether this bug will be fixed? 

 

Thanks in advance
