BUG, Dropdown behind Text Inputs (Forms and Galleries)

Hi,

 

I have a bug that i cannot find out why it keeps occuring,

 

The dropdowns in my edit form do not display infront of the text inputs below it, Here is two examples, i have similar issues with buttons when using variables, if i change the position and size of these troublesome dropdowns they fix themselves i.e see last image (same app, same dropdown. Moved 40px to the left..)

 

Anyone have any resolves?

 

PS I have tried removing the troublesome datacards and replacing.. also i cannot remove the whole form as all the datacards have been modified for aesthetics. This app is finished (month or so of work) and the error was found in the testing stages.

 

I do believe it may be an issue with copy and pasting the forms? also there the issue only occurs on two forms (same datasource) however one is to view and edit and the other is to add new (They do very different things besides that however)

Thanks @Questionasking ,

I can confirm that Surface Books also suffer the same problem on some external UHD monitors at 150% font size.

Its very easy to fix that, just move your elements up and down in your PowerApps Studio Designer to change wich element will be displayed at what z-axys (Toppest at the top, lowest at the low).

Hi,

 

firstly thankyou for being helpful, however i do already know about the ordering of elements. Its not that, for example the editform is up the top in both screens..

Bump, any MVP or Microsoft staff able to provide some insight into this? Should i try to contact microsoft help desk? this appears to be a bug?

Hi @Questionasking ,

Yes it is a bug, but not necessarily in Power Apps. It occurs in certain monitors at particular font size percentages and generally on the right side of the screen, but it is not consistent and I have yet to find a clear connection between what works and what does not. I get it on Samsung UHD monitors at 150% font size. Something in the graphic card is not resolving the Power Apps "layers" properly.

Test this by changing the font size or displaying on a different monitor type.

This may not be a solution, but when it happens, I shift the offending controls further left until they work.
