Copying & Pasting a ComboBox that referrences a Person SharePoint Data type Resets the IsSearchable field to false

Has anyone experienced an issue with copying & pasting a ComboBox that holds a Person SharePoint Data Type in the items property where the pasted version does not keep the IsSearchable field value and is reset to false when the original ComboBox that is being copied holds the value as true or some variable?  Is this a known bug?


Actually, It appears to happen randomly even with other data types used with ComboBox, like Choice data types.

@Ms-PowerRanger2 ,

I did some tests on my side and unfortunately I can't confirm this issue. Of course, I can't exclude the possibility that might appear in some regions like yours.

From my point of view, it is not a critical bug just because the ComboBox control became somehow unusable in the given conditions (person type) and this behavior cannot pass unnoticed during the tests.

Being aware of this unusual behavior, try to check the property value after the copy-paste operations.\



@gabibalaban Thanks for your Response.  This behavior seems to be sporadic.  I typically have choice fields nested within layers of vertical and horizontal containers and am using variables for a variety of the other properties within the ComboBox Control.  Potentially it is something that occurs when the set-up is more complicated.  Maybe in the future, I'll take notice if there is something else more specific that seems to trigger the behavior.  I've also run into this when exporting and importing a solution into another organization's environment.  In the environment of origin IsSearchable is true and in the imported environment I've had to update the IsSearchable field back to reflect true.
