Form is blank when in Play

@RandyHayes 

I followed your instructions for the video on YouTube- https://youtu.be/2E4FXNPLVXw 

However, when I go to test the form by pressing Play, my form is blank on the first page.  The DisplayMode is set to FinalForm.Mode, and the FinalForm's DisplayMode is on Edit- like your video.

Upon launch, it just says "Getting your data..."

This is what it should look like-

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.

You can't do it there! 

It appears your app is ONLY concerned with creating records and not editing them - is that a safe assumption? 

 

If so, move the function, Set(varFormData, Defaults('Receiving Checklist')  to the OnStart of the App.

You have NO Item property in your form.  It will show nothing until it has an Item.

In looking at your final form Item property, it appears that you have a varFormData variable that you storing the record in, varFormData should be the Item property of all of your other forms except the final form.

How and where are you setting varFormData?

In the OnSelect property of the "Next" button on the first Form-

I changed this- makes logical sense.  

However, it did not fix the issue.  I saved the app, closed it out and relaunched-

Never mind.  That did solve the problem.  I forgot I had not yet published the changes.  When I went back into Edit mode, and selected play, it is working now.
