Gallery Forgetting Layout Everytime Connects to Data

I am working on a dynamic form where the users see a filtered set of records from one database. I laid out the gallery in the format I wanted before the power apps update and eveything worked fine. Now when I switch from one set of data to the other, the text box forget what columns they are supposed to display, despite the fact they are the same columns as the previous filtered set. Every time I switch data I have to reassign what each text box needs to display and it is really annoying. Any help?

Re: Gallery Forgetting Layout Everytime Connects to Data

Hi @Likasnmiba,

 

When saying switch data, do you mean switch connections?

The data need to be bound with the control, changing the data source of the control would require re-configure the related properties.

Currently there is no way to keep the gallery showing data with different connections.

For different data source, please follow mr-danf's posts in the following thread:

Auto generate app with Multiple SharePoint lists

If I have misunderstand something, please let me know.

Regards,

Michael

Re: Gallery Forgetting Layout Everytime Connects to Data

Not sure if my situation is related, but two galleries in my app have had their text box field mapping changed without any developer interaction. I've changed the layout back to its original state, but it either doesn't commit the changes or reverts for some reason.

 

To my knowledge this has only manifested in the last 2 days or so.

 

I'm using an SQL data source and the galleries are filtered.

The issue seemed to stop. I had to manual type in what connection I wanted it to use instead of selecting it on the side.
