Unable to get SubmitForm to return to desired screen - EDIT vs NEW

I have a button in an EditForm that either adds or edits info. I had the OnSelect property for the button set as this:

 

If(EditForm1.Mode = FormMode.New,Navigate(MainScreen,Cover),Navigate(DetailsScreen1,ScreenTransition.Cover))

It always went back to the DetailScreen though, even if the FormMode was New, which should take it back to the main app screen.

 

So I found the OnSuccess property of the EditForm and changed it from Back() to:

If(EditForm1.Mode = FormMode.New,Navigate(MainScreen,Cover),Navigate(DetailsScreen1,ScreenTransition.Cover))

But it does the same thing. Adding or Editing a record returns it to the DetailScreen, never to the MainScreen.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Hi @EdHansberry,

In the button that sets the form mode before you navigate to the form's screen, and that holds the NewForm(EditForm1) command make the OnSelect property

NewForm(EditForm1); Set(screenback,1);Navigate(EditScreen,Cover) 

and in the button or icon that holds the EditForm(EditForm1) command, make the OnSelect property 

 EditForm(EditForm1); Set(screenback, 2); Navigate(EditScreen1,Cover)

In the OnSuccess property of EditForm1

If(screenback=1,Navigate(MainScreen,Cover),Navigate(DetailsScreen1,ScreenTransition.Cover))

These formalae should work independent of the form's mode.  The reason I avoided your approach is that I'm not certain what mode the form will be in once the OnSelect property runs and it most likely returns  to the default mode of the form which likely was Edit mode.  Thats probably why it didn't work for you.

Re: Unable to get SubmitForm to return to desired screen - EDIT vs NEW

THanks. This does work. I don't understand though why the SubmitForm() in OnSelect behaves differently than other fields in the form. For example, I have a field hidden when the EditForm is in NewMode via:

If(EditForm1.Mode=FormMode.Edit,Parent.DisplayName,"")

So it is tracking it. I guess the SubmitForm() is putting the form in a different state, or clearing the state?

 

Anyway, good tip. And I learned the Set() function to boot!
