BUG REPORT: Datatable control loses fields as of 2.0.690


I have actually given up on the data table and converted over to a gallery - the gallery seems more robust and has more options - is there any reason I would use a data table over a gallery?

This issue has been fixed and will be released to Preview PROD on Monday 2/5 and Worldwide Prod Release on Wednesday 2/7. The gallery can be used as a workaround in the meantime, but the data table currently has its advantages over the gallery in terms of the speed of the controls and data that render on the canvas. The field selection behavior is also consistent with the Form, so in case you are using a lot of data tables and forms in your app, then the experience should be seamless.

This issue has been fixed and will be rolled out to preview PROD on Monday 2/5 and Worldwide PROD on Wednesday 2/7.

Missed this in the thread. Both the gallery and data table controls have advantages. You would use one or the other based on your scenario. Most notably Data table works best when you need to display tabular data easily. Sorry again that you are seeing issues but rest assured we will work earnestly to make this more robust.
