I have an app for a list in SharePoint. When I try to use the app, the information shows up correctly on my display form; however, when I go to the edit form, the previous information is not shown (it is blank). I need this to show so the user sees the previous input. How can I fix this?
Thanks in advance
If this is the first time you are working with the form control, then it is recommended to go through the following article first:
EditForm control has two mode, New and Edit.
Under New Mode, all the input would be reset to blank,
Under Edit mode, it will keep the data showed under the Display form control.
If you would like to have value displayed under New Mode, then please consider modify the Default value of the corresponding Data control.
If you have any further questions, please post back.
The edit form shows all of the data from the selected item except for those with a drop down. The drop down choices are given in SharePoint, so that is where the options are coming from. It will show it in the display form correctly, but when I go to the edit screen, it disappears. I can click the drop down and the list will be there.
I just need to understand why it is just the drop down information that is not being carried over to the edit form.
I have the same issue and would like to know if there is something more i deen to edit to have it correctly display the value from a dropdown (sharepoint list) in the edit form. New form, the data entered is visible, and saved to sharepoint list correctly. however returning to the form to edit, only the dropdowns are missing their values, but the values are still in the SP list. Would love to hear if this can be fixed.
I was having a similar problem, but this worked for me.
Try setting the default value for the dropdown field to match the card that you are on in the gallery.
Thank-you so much CaCa. that totally worked. so I clicked on the datacard value and then went to default. the default was set to "" and I changed it to ThisItem.NameofDatacardvalue and voila. it worked.
