Did powerapps update break container control?

I need some help!

Every control inside a container is displayed in the upper-left corner of the container no matter what control i choose.
The control positon is still correct from the properties panel but the displayed is always on in the top-left corner.

P/S: I am not choosing invisible control

Hi @hexagon ,

 

Yes, the PowerApps Support Team was aware of this issue yesterday. The good news is that they have a fix for this on a local build. The bad news is that because this is an experimental feature the fix may take a long time for that fix reach you. It'll take 2-6 weeks depending on your region, endpoint (Preview vs production), and your environment's refresh cadance. In the meantime, they suggest using group controls (select controls and press ctrl+g to create a group) or Components instead, since they can solve most of the same problems. Copy-pasting the Container and deleting the original can also work in a pinch.

I have same issue.

Issue presented yesterday

Created test app and issue repeated:

Note X Position should be 600

Cutting to remove from container fixes the issue.

My actual app has many screens and multiple uses of containers on each screen, so this solution is not really feasible as all screen elements will need to be repositioned.

I'm having the same issue! It's not breaking the app but it's pretty annoying that I can only select a control from the tree view

Same problem. Seems to be from version 3.20084.9. 

 

I know this is an experimental function, but its one of the best i PowerApps and we use it everywhere. Now its really hard to continue development. 

 

Any news of any updates to fix this? 

 

Best regards

Same issue here,

I have started a support request at Microsoft using my Unified Support as acceleration for this subject, as it makes it near impossible to do any more development on our apps.

 

As soon as I hear back, I will update this thread.

Hi @AcidTest_IT ,

 

I'm tying to reproduce the issue, but I can't reproduce it in PowerApps Studio 3.20084.9

Could you please share more details on how to reproduce this error?

The bug only happens with control inside 'Container' control. Try enabling 'Container' control then put other control like text input, button inside 'Container'. Save the app then reopen.

Hi @hexagon ,

 

Yes, this is actually what I did, but I still can't reproduce this issue.

PowerApps Studio Version in Edit is 3.20084.9, but in Running it is 3.20083.15.

Does this cause the difference? or Are there anything I missed?
