Blank template | New Screen | Edit form

I've created a brand-new screen with an empty template. Added the "edit form" to the screen, clicked and navigated to my data source, selected the appropriate fields from the right hand data source view, everything looks perfect. However, when I click the play button from the top toolbar the screen displays empty.

 

I drug a simple text box to the top of the form, use the play button feature, and the text appeared properly. It seems to be related to any field connected to any CDS data source.

 

Please help

Hi greglush,

 

You also need to set the Item property to point to the record that you want to edit from your Data Source. Here is a reference for the Form control in case you need more details: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/control-form-detail/

 

Best regards,

That reference doesn't actually answer the question.  HOW do you set the item field?

 

So consider a Gallery showing This Item,  Now in that Gallery you put a button to do the edit.  For that button you configure:

EditForm(<Name of Edit Form Gallery>); Navigate(<form containing Edit form control>,Transition)

 

That is supposed to work????

 

On the Edit Form Gallery the data source is set to the same table as the view page, yup.    So what do you set Item to?  I've tried variables, filter conditions everything I can think of

In the properties for the form, you need to set the Item to "<Your Gallery Name>.Selected"
