Data card fields disappear after renaming form.

Hi guys!

Just today I was editing a Sharepoint List form in Powerapps. I created a screen for view and duplicated it. I renamed the Screen to EditScreen and got no problems. But when I renamed the form, the Data Cards disappear. Actually their width automatically becomes zero so I can't see them.

 

To troubleshoot this, I renamed the original form created using customize form in powerapps and there is no problem. I created a new sharepoint list, duplicated and renamed the form and I got the same problem. They automatically resize to zero.

 

Is there an outage with PowerApps today?

 

Thanks!

Re: Data card fields disappear after renaming form.

Hi @Jaystechtips 

 

I confirm that the issue exists. As a workaround for this, I would recommend you to select all the data cards and use the below formula in the "Width" property of datacards:
 
Width -> Parent.Default
 
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: Data card fields disappear after renaming form.

Hi @Jaystechtips 

 

I am not able to reproduce this. Can you try to log-out of the powerapps and clear the cache of the browser, relogin and confirm if the issue still exists? This might be a caching issue.
 
If this still exists, please share more details about this, so that we may help you better.
 
Hope this Helps!

Re: Data card fields disappear after renaming form.

Hi @yashag2255 

 

I am customizing the sharepoint list form. I was doing this before with no issues.

 

Here is the screenshot of the issue.

I duplicated the screen from ScreenEdit. And I rename the FormEdit. 

 

After renaming the form. The data fields disappeared. Actually they are still there but they resized themselves to Zero

Troubleshooting steps done:

1. Cleared browser cache

2. Signed out and sign in again

3. Tried Firefox, Internet Explorer.

 

I still got the same issue. 

 

Thanks for looking into this.

Hi @yashag2255 

 

The workaround is working. They are not resizing to zero. 😄

 

Thank you!

Re: Data card fields disappear after renaming form.

Hi @Jaystechtips ,

Just to supplement his point of view: @yashag2255 .

I've made a similar test and found that this problem exists indeed.

If you rename the form, every data card's Width will become "0".

So after you rename the form, try to set every datacard's Width to: Parent.Width

Then, the data cards will change back to the original width.93.PNG

Hi @v-yutliu-msft 

 

Yes. Now everytime I duplicate a screen, I set the cards width to parent.  

 

Thank you 😄

I do not have Parent.Default option in the width. I do have Parent.Width but it resizes the field to Fax width.

I also having this issue, so can't rename form, just need to use whatever name as it was created from "eg. form2_2 " , it's a pain. 😞

I can't remember if there is a parent.default in the width field.

But I search for parent.width and then customize the width after.

 

See the screenshot below.

Yeah its a pain. At first i thought that the server might be down or something. Restarted my laptop, tried incognito before finally posting it here in the forums. I think as of now they still do not have this bug solved.
