DatePicker fails to open Calendar in Android App



I'd like to post a bug I've run into today. Maybe someone wants to try repoducing it. It affects the date picker when it's placed to far right. It won't open the calendar view for picking a date. I identified that the problem could be the active date to be slightly out of the screen which causes the calendar to collapse again.

Steps are quite easy:

- New Canvas App for Smartphone Layout

- Add Datepicker (i dragged it a little bit smaller)

- Select Start of Week property to be the day after today (since it is Sunday, I picked Monday). So the highlighted day should be on the right of the calendar.

- Place Datepicker on the right.

- That's it.


Following Result in Android App: (see video - i tapped several times on the datepicker):

Re: DatePicker fails to open Calendar in Android App

Hi there,


Thanks for raising this issue. I am an engineer from PowerApps and I am looking at this issue.


I couldn't reproduce this from my end. Could you help me verify if this is a consistent issue (i.e. if you move the control up or down a bit, then save and re-publish it, does the issue remain)? Also, which Android device are you using?


Thanks a lot,

Re: DatePicker fails to open Calendar in Android App

Hello Mengping,


the Bug is still reproducable. I've reproduced it on Android 8 and 9.


Please make sure you set up the calendar week so the active day is on the most right. (The active day is a few pixels off the screen in that case). 

I have have tried it in several positions during finding and verifying the bug. I even created a new app for showing the bug. It is consistent. You just have to make sure the active day is on the right.

For a standard setting Monday or Sunday are the first day of the week. So this bug would regulary only appear if it would be tested on a Saturday or Sunday.

If you are able to access the demo-app its ID would be cedf96c1-9878-4427-a18b-8270779ed80f


Best Regards
