i am facing an issue with combo-box when it is loaded for the first time. when i click on it to search a text the combo-box enlarges and zooms in the application. see attached image1.
To fix this. I have to scroll to right top corner and close the combo-box. then using pinching action i have to zoom out and scale-to-fit the application. next time when i open combo box, it works fine. see image2
This behavior is happening always when the app is loaded for the first time on iPhone. on all other larger devices it works fine.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There's no real solution here other than to make the input as wide as possible. Unfortunately, that's just how iPhone + PowerApps behaves.
Hi @utsav_ghosh1 ,
Thanks for your feedback. Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and the issue is confirmed on my side.
Actually, it is an known issue with the ComboBox within a PowerApps when running in iPhone Mobile device. I afraid that there is no way to fix this issue within PowerApps currently. This issue is related to Control Adaptation in iPhone Mobile device.
If you would like this feature to be imporved, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
My goodness this is terrible.
"This is just how Powerapps works"... No, it's a bug. And a really bad one. I'm not submitting this to PowerApps ideas because it's not an idea for a new feature. It's a bug that has come up on multiple forums, and gives horrible user experience and there is still no intention to fix it.
Does the powerapps team have any intention of fixing this?
Its unfortunate that this is expected/accepted behavior, but the way I've found to get around it is:
- Scroll to the top of the Form holding the Combobox, pinch the screen (zoom out).
Its tough to have to train all your end users on this "nuance", but it works.
The only workaround I found was to put a Text Input box next to the combo box label that says "Zoom Out". It looks like a button and forces the iPhone to zoom back out. I only make it visible if the combo box is changed.
Was just reading about how to fix this issue when I came across this thread. It didn't look hopeful until I saw this response. Nice to see it's been fixed and only a week ago too. Good timing. Saved me a headache.
Hi @chmoncayMSFT ,
I'm still having the same issue on my IPhone SE after I republished the app. I also tried making a new app with just a combobox, but no luck. Any idea why? My current version of PowerApps mobile is 3.21041.28.
