Button not "clickable" on a SharePoint List form

I've edited a SharePoint list from and have added a submit button.  The button is visible all of the time, but is only active ("clickable") when the form is in edit mode.  In view mode, the button is visible but I can't click on it.

 

I have changed the DisplayMode to Edit rather than Parent.DisplayMode expecting that to force the button to always be active, but it hasn't worked.

 

Any advice would be appreciated!

Re: Button not "clickable" on a SharePoint List form

Hi @Himmelblau_au,

Do you add the Button control within Edit form rather than outside the Edit form?

Do you custom a form for your SP list using PowerApps?

The user @ChadVKealey has faced same issue with you, please check the response within the following thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Creating-Apps/Unable-to-start-Flow-from-button-in-PowerApps-cust...

If you added the Button control within the Edit form, the parent form's DisplayMode property would override the Button control's and prevent the button action from firing.

As an alternative solution, please take a try to add the Button control outside the Edit form (within the screen), and set the DisplayMode property of the Button control to DisplayMode.Edit, then try it again, check if the issue is solved.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Button not "clickable" on a SharePoint List form

Thanks (and sorry for the delayed response).  That does work, however the button now floats when form scrolls, so I'll need to work out how I can make it move with the form.

Re: Button not "clickable" on a SharePoint List form

I encountered the same problem and I dealt with it by using these formulas to calculate the correct position where the button should appear over the form

X: form.X + datacard.X + J

Y: form.Y + datacard.Y + K

 

If you need to position it according to other elements, jsut throw the values in the formula like you would normally do

Edit: As of now, it seems to only work if the form isn't scrollable because elements position is fixed. I need it for a scrollable form, will try to find a solution
