Cannot select some items in a gallery

Hi all,

I have an app I've been working on for some time that has a gallery in it.  It has been coming along great, up until yesterday.  Now when I play the app (whether in preview or live), when I get to the screen that has a gallery in it, I can only select some of the items in the gallery.  I cannot select some items at all.  Also, the items have buttons on them, but many of them are un-clickable (especially the ones where I can't select their parent).  I know the were some issues with PowerApps yesterday, but my other apps seem fine (I checked).  Any ideas as to what made my app go crazy?

I was never able to get it to work.  So, I deleted the gallery, and re-created it.  That fixed it.

Hi @lumberjacklurch ,


I noticed that you mentioned "parent", did you have nested gallery in this app? If so, please share the related formulas and then attach a screenshot of it. Are there anything in common for the records that cannot be selected? What is the data source of the gallery?

No, this is not a nested gallery, the datasource is a SharePoint list.  What makes this even weirder is that I have other apps with this same type of setup, and they don't have this issue.  Could my app have become corrupted?

You probably had the gallery set to View mode. That would prevent you to select an item.

You're a legend for making this comment - I made that mistake and you just saved me ages of troubleshooting 🙂
