HELP! Parts of app are unclickable/editable

I have an app that I was working on yesterday, and everything was working on it.  I come in this morning, open it up, and certain parts are not working.  On the same screen, I have a gallery that I can't change selections or click on the buttons inside, the 5 buttons outside of the gallery work fine, and 3 of those buttons show pop up forms.  In the first button's form, I can only edit 2 of the 4 fields.  In the second button's form, everything works.  In the third button's form, nothing works.  WTH!!! I double-checked the displaymode of all the components and they are all edit.  I even restored the previous version of the app, but it made no difference.  Please help!

@lumberjacklurch .  I experienced a similar issue.

 

I cut (ctrl + x) to remove the gallery then straight after I pasted (ctrl + v) the same gallery back in.  I had to move the gallery back into position but I could then select contols and buttons inside the gallery.

 

Not sure if it's the same as your issue but worth giving it a go!

Are you finding issues in other Apps or just this one?

If just this one, you might try to build up another test app with some of the components of the "non-working" one to see if there is a root cause.

Seems odd though that an EditForm will not let you edit some fields even though they are editable.

Also...you don't have some control sitting over top (in the tree order) of them do you?  I've seen situations where there were other controls that were on top of things and they were causing items to not be clickable.

It's just this app.  This has happened before, and I had to make a replacement app from scratch.  I agree it's odd.  Very odd.  Especially since it was working fine up until 4pm EST yesterday.

 

I do not have any controls over the tree order, but I'm a noob so...

That does seem odd.  What I would do is put together another test app and put key items in that app to test - like the form for example.  That one would be my first hit to see what is going on.

Also, this little trick has saevd my bacon several times...in your original app on the EditForm, delete it and then ctrl-Z to undo the delete.  This sometimes kicks the designer to re-init the form properly.  Same goes for Galleries.

Thanks @sips1!  It now works!

 

Thanks @RandyHayes! I tried the delete/ctrl-Z, it didn't fix it, but it did force me to reformat the form. 😄

That's strange...those were both identical solutions except one was a delete and one a cut...same results.

Glad you have it working now.

Yes, it does fix the issue, but it keeps happening!  I cut & paste, cut & paste, but it doesn't stay fixed!

Re: HELP! Parts of app are unclickable/editable

@RandyHayes/@sips1,

Now the buttons are acting funky.  They are only clickable if you hover over the lower half of the button.  What is going on?!  Has anyone else seen this?

Just to be sure - can you try to edit the app on a different computer or browser?

If that is the same, then I would try to "Save As" the app into a file, then try to load the file again to see if the round-trip save will help it.
