Container inside Horizontal/Vertical Container breaks application.

Hello,

I have encountered the following problem for a while now and been waiting for it to get fixed but I haven't seen much discussion on it. I am trying to build a responsible application and everything is working just fine except for when I place a Container Inside a Horizontal or Vertical Container. Take a look at the following images for better context:

Here is my set up for the following scenario. I am placing a Horizontal Container (Gray-colored) with 2 normal Containers Inside it (Orange colored). I have placed an image on both containers to have a better context of what happens to the items when the application bugs out:

Next, here is a screenshot of what the application looks like during the preview mode. Everything works just fine on this screen.

Unfortunately, here is what the application looks like when I am running the published version:

As you can see from the image, all of my elements, which were pictures in this case, disappeared. This was also tested on a brand new application and on entirely different Environments and they all yielded the same result. I also have these additional examples of how this bug affects applications:

Published Version:

Here is a list of behaviors I noticed when this bug occurs:

  1. All images disappear regardless of their placement on the screen.
  2. Other non-uploaded items such as texts or icons are randomly misplaced on the screen, sometimes even outside of the view.
  3. The bug only activates and breaks the app once the applications show the screen where the Containers causing the issue are located. It does not matter if they are visible or not.
  4. Once the bug is triggered, its effects carry over to all other screens.
  5. Galleries, media, and other "dynamic" items stop working.
  6. Some elements such as icons are rotated randomly.
  7. Components elements are also affected by bug

 

Let me know if anyone has a solution to this or if the Power Apps Team is already working on it. We are trying to develop fully functional responsible applications but we can't do that if this might be a bug that breaks applications in the future.


UPDATE: It seems Canvases are also affected by this. I attempted to replace the container with a scrollable canvas but it still had the same issue as when I was using regular containers. The problem only started after I activated Wrap on the Horizontal column container.

Hi @mrtojin :

Sorry to reply you so late. I reported this problem as soon as I saw your post. So far, this is the response I got from the developer:

There is currently a deployment freeze over the holiday season, so the fix will not be deployed until sometime in January.
If  you need a fix right away they can avoid the issue by avoiding nesting manual containers within layout containers, or by using v3.20114
