Glitch: Combo Box Search Continues to Filter List Even After Form Reset

I have a Combo Box in an Edit Form and recently noticed odd behavior that I believe is a glitch. When I search for items in the list and choose a result, the Combo Box search remains even after resetting the form and setting the mode to New.

The source for the form is a SharePoint list, and the Combo Box is referencing a SharePoint Lookup column.

I have attached a GIF that shows the strange behavior along with samples of the code used for the buttons.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Hi @pwrappr01 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that the ComboBox Search Result still remains there even though you reset your Edit form?


Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test, and the issue is confirmed on my side. I think this issue may be a temporary issue within ComboBox control itself.


As an fixed solution, you could consider save the Course LookUp field available options into a collection, and then set the Items property of the Course field ComboBox to this collection.


I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Set the OnStart property of the App to following:

             Choices([@'Your SP List'].Course)   // Course represents the LookUp field in your SP List


Go to your Edit form, then unlock the Course field data card, set the Items property of the Course ComboBox to following:


then re-load your canvas app (fire the OnStart property of App), then check if the issue is fixed.


I would also post this issue back to my product team, if this issue is fixed, I would reply here. Please consider use above alternative solution as temporary solution.
