Button Not Working for Navigating to Screen with Component

Hi there,

I'm sure I'm just being dumb, but I can't figure this out. I have 2 buttons on my screen (one is just for testing) used to just navigate to another screen -- Navigate(Screen1). However, neither of these buttons do the navigation. In fact, they do nothing when clicked. After clicking one, though, before doing anything else, and then going to a different screen that is working normally, the screen bugs out in ways I cannot understand (screenshots of normal vs broken). I think I've isolated the problem of it not moving to the other screen to components. Neither components I have tried using in the screen I'm navigating to allow the navigation to actually occur (I only want to use 1 in the end and have been switching between the 2 for testing purposes). However, both these components work fine in other screens. However, when I take out the components, the buttons work fine. I'm using Android mobile and Dynamics 365 (web) and this happens in both. However, the app works fine in the Edit mode in create.powerapps. I'm just not sure what is going on here.

Hi @Ben-G 


I'm not sure if I understand the whole scenario, but, did you use the Navigate method as follows

Thanks for the reply @shailendra74 !


I just tried your formula for sanity reasons but to no avail unfortunately. However, I do not think the transition property is necessary right? I also removed the component on the screen being navigated to and the navigation works fine now, with and without the transition property. However, I want that component and am not sure if this is a possible bug or not. Also, for further info, I have no errors being reported in formulas on any screens.


Any other ideas?

Hi @Ben-G ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that you could not navigate to another screen which contains a custom Component control?


Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. Please consider take a try to turn off the "Improved app rendering (final validation)" option within Advanced settings of App settings of your app, then re-publish your app, check if the issue is solved.


If the issue still exists, please consider capture the Session ID of your publish app, and then submit an assisted support for further help along with the captured Session ID value through the following link:

Hi there @v-xida-msft .


Your description of my problem is correct. I can't seem to turn off "Improved app rendering (final validation)" though because then I'd have to disable "Components" right? Perhaps I do not understand this error: "Please disable the component authoring app setting before disabling improved app rendering."


The error only happens when I'm new pages now; it was not a problem before.

I'll reach out to support. Thank you for your help and let me know if that new session sparks anything. It happens when clicking the Button that says "Button" towards the bottom right.

Re: Button Not Working for Navigating to Screen with Component

is it not due to the fact that you have to add the navigation property to a component to use it.

because a component is isolated it does not "understand" which screen to navigate to on the select of a button

Re: Button Not Working for Navigating to Screen with Component

I think you misunderstood the problem. There is a component on a separate screen (say Screen2). When I click a button on Screen1, all I want it to do is navigate to Screen2. This doesn't work with the component on Screen2, but when I remove it, the navigation works fine. The component on Screen2 does have a navigation custom property that I set to go to a given screen (my home screen), but that shouldn't affect the ability to get to the screen, especially as that has worked on other screens.
