Dropdown control bug when used in a Gallery

Hi All,


I have created an App with a gallery of questions...answers for each questions are to be selected from a dropdown control. 

While playing the app, if I select the first dropdown value to say 2, then scroll down, I am seeing multiple dropdown values below are getting set to 2 automatically instead of 0 which is my default value set for the dropdown control. If now I update the first value to say 3, the rest are remaining same as 2.

This issue does not happen if I choose the 2nd dropdown first, just with first dropdown.

Also if after entering the gallery I scroll down to the end and then scroll back up and then select first dropdown value, it does not update the rest. Only if I select the first dropdown after entering the gallery, many of the below dropdown values change to same value which is selected in first dropdown.


The same issue I did saw with Text Input control also couple months back, if used in a gallery. When something I input in the first text box, it copies the same to many of the below text boxes in the gallery automatically.


For now, I have implemented a workaround for the issue, but just wanted to notify regarding the bug.

Yes, I have also noticed this bug. It's crazy. The first record in the Gallery is in control and likes to be followed 😛
It doesn't happen all the time though. I couldn't figure out how and when it happens.

Thanks @PSahu for reporting this bug. We are aware of this and related issues and a fix will be coming very soon.

Thank you

We have released a new version of gallery. Try it out and let us know if you still have the same problems.

No, not working yet. I tried to create an app in web with a single screen, added a gallery with 9 items and added dropdown (values from 0-10) to each item, 0 being default value.

While previewing/playing, selected the first dropdown value as 4, the 8th and 9th dropdown automatically updated to 4, rest all remained 0 (default value).

Could anybody else try the same and verify if its working or not for them.
