Auto height bug?



I am experiencing a problem with auto height not always displaying correctly.  It has happened in galleries, and in plain text boxes not in galleries.  It seems as though the height of the text for a given box is not not getting read correctly and making the height of the boxes much smaller than they need to be.  This problem seems to happen at random, some galleries are fine, while other experience the issue.  The issue can usually be solved by closing the app and re-opening it.  Please see below screen shot of my error.  


Thank you for any insight!

My autoheight galleries are still experiencing an issue with being temporarily jumbled.  Waiting or clicking on the gallery generally resolves it, but this doesn't seem to be fixed yet.  Where do I see the PowerApps version?

Also having heavy problems with the autoheight feature inside a flexible gallery.

Setup: Page -> Gallery -> Label with autoheight

No nested gallery.


Current app version is 3.19021.13, lowest version ever was 3.19013.14


I am loading the items from a custom connector before navigating to the page with the error, so the lines are transferred to the page in the third Navigate parameter.


Changing app rendering didn't have any effect.


Having the same issue here with a label in an autoheight gallery.

It will always be messed up looking when you just "Preview the App" from Edit mode. 


When you are in actual Play mode it is typically because it takes time to load and adjust. I have one that I needed the AutoHeight gallery on but that was an issue for me so I just put a timer on it that shows a "Loading" screen with spinner for just a few seconds and then hides it so...from a user point they don't see that.


BUT...If I have a lot of data there I still notice it to be an issue when I scroll..and that is annoying.

Still not fixed for me...


New app rendering turned on or off. Optimization of controls turned on or off. Doesn't help...

Thanks @jlister  this solved the problem for me also

Guys, the above solution didn't work for me...

So if you're still facing the issue, well I might I a solution for you!
My first contribution here since I'm very new in PowerApps and I really like that guy 😄


I figured out that the messy control is not the 'autoheight' itself but the 'wrap' one!
And even though both are set to true, I finally had to force the body (where is my text content) to 'wrap' on loading the screen.

So I simply set the screen OnVisible to: Body7.Wrap = true

And Voila! Works like a charm for me now!

I hope that it will help you too 😉

Ran into the same problem with the following controls:


Flexible height gallery (with Visible toggle)

HtmlText (AutoHeight) [with data from SP lists]


The way I resolved it was to Refresh the datasource Refresh(My_Datasource) and Reset gallery Reset(My_Gallery) on the Screen's OnVisible action.
