Edit Form Not Loading Properly When Using App

Hi All,

 

I've created a PowerApp that is connected to a SharePoint list through an Edit form. I'm able to interact with it when editing the app itself, but it doesn't load properly when I use the app. I get a message called "Getting your data..." and it form never loads. Here's a screenshot of the problem:

I don't know why its doing this or how to fix it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Edit Form Not Loading Properly When Using App

Hi robertwinn,

 

If it's an Edit form, make sure it has a record stipulated in the Items property - otherwise it tends to show up as a blank form when you run the app.  The Item's property for an Edit form is usually linked to a gallery selection somewhere else, but I'd need some more info to determine if this is the case for this app - for now set it to 

First(yourSourceName)

where yourSourceName is your sharepoint list connection - if that doesn't work I'll need some more info 🙂

 

Kind regards,

Re: Edit Form Not Loading Properly When Using App

Hi RusselThomas,

 

My EditForm is connected to my gallery (BrowseGallery1). I found that the error occurs when I go straight from a my second edit screen to my first edit screen (the one with the Edit Form on it). On start, I had the app automatically send the user to my second edit screen and then they would press an icon to get to the first edit screen (again the one with the Edit Form onto it). The Error didn't occur when I instead had the app direct to my homescreen, click the automatic built in '+' icon that OnSelect does "NewForm(EditForm1)", then go to my second edit screen and then to my first edit screen. It sounds confusing, but bottom line the problem was occuring because I was sending my user into the edit process without first creating a new Edit form instance. Thanks for the help, using your solution I was able to track the edit form back to my gallery and then back to the actual '+' icon, which then I realized I needed to create a new Edit form instance on the start of the app.

Re: Edit Form Not Loading Properly When Using App

While adding Defaults("SharePoint connector") fixes the Getting data... message, it does not populate the already entered data into the app.  It just shows a blank page when i sleect an item from the list.  I ended up ditching the app and changed the Form to "Use the default SharePoint form" from the Form Settings tab.  I have run into a lot of issues with using the App, which one of them have been countless times with the "Getting your data..." message.
