Forms disappear in preview and view mode



I''ve been having this issue for a while. Edit forms in my existing and new apps dissapear when I enter into preview mode or open the app in normal mode. I can see the forms only when I'm on edit mode. 

Very dissapointing! I checked with SharePoint Online and Azure SQL connections and both connections had the issue.

Re: Forms disappear in preview and view mode

Hi Afernando,


The latest PowerApps Version is 2.0.461. Were you using the latest version?


I was using PowerApps Version 2.0.461. I had an App(I created at previous version), it was connecting to SharePoint Online and contained an Edit form and Display form. I opened it on Preview mode, the forms were shown well. Then I opened it on View mode on PC, iOS, and also Web player, all were worked well. I also created an App at current version which had a connection with SharePoint Online, the forms can be shown in both Preview mode and View mode on PC, Web player, iOS.


Please check your PowerApps Version, if you version was not the latest version, please update it and have a try again.
Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Re: Forms disappear in preview and view mode



Thanks for all tyhe replies. I figured out where the problem was. I don't know if it's a bug or how PowerApps meant to work but the forms aren't visible unless they're resetted for some reason.

I had been using NewForm() before the last update and it was working fine.
