Customize forms - FormMode.New problem

Hi! I'm working with sharepoint list customize forms.

I wrote a function in MainScreen OnVisible


If(formMain.Mode = FormMode.New, UpdateContext({formTypeNew:true}), UpdateContext({formTypeNew:false}));

But when I click New button in SP list and new form is opened, formNewType value is always false.

I've tried to change the condition to formMain.Mode = FormMode.Edit, in this case formTypeNew value is true.

But it's a new form, not old one. Is there a problem in my formula? It's working fine in common powerapp, not customize forms' one.

Re: Customize forms - FormMode.New problem

The SharePointInegration control is setting the form mode for PowerApps custom forms. In your code you are referencing "formMain" and the auto generated form is called "SharePointForm1", so I am assuming that you have been making some changes to what was auto generated. If this is the case you will need to look at the Advance properties pane for "SharePointIntegration" and see how the New, Edit and View forms are being set.
