I need to set a field value to a variable when the form loads. I added Set(myVar,SharePointIntegration.Selected.Title) to OnEdit, but this method doesn't work consistently. Half of the time, the variable would show the value of the previously opened item.
The screenshot shows myVar is equal to "Orange" from another item. It'll change to "Apple" if I manually execute the Set function again by clicking the button. This behaviour seems to happen only when the form takes a little longer to load than usual.
Thanks for the feedback.
Please try to add:
Under OnCancel and OnSave property of the SharePointintegration part.
See if this would make any difference.
I've tried your sugestion but it didn't make any difference.
This bug occurs much more frequently in edit mode. It only happened around 1 out of 20 times in view mode.
The action is slow enough to witness. When the form loads up, the Title and myVar values are from the previous item. In a split second, both fields get updated to the current item values. I can see that myVar doesn't change when the Title field changes. Seems like the Set function is not executing properly sometimes.
I am having the same problem, or a very similar one. The first time I Edit an item, the field is coming up blank. The second time and following, it seems to be OK. When I tried the suggestion above, the first time it comes up blank, the second time, it comes up with the value from the row that was selected first, and the third time and following it seems to be OK.
This worked sporadically for me. Turning on the Experimental Feature for Formula-level error management seemed to help. Seems odd.
