How to display a checked Checkbox in FormMode.View?

Hi,

 

i wan't to customize a SharePoint Form with PowerApps. I have some Yes/No toggles. Instead of showing the toggle i added some Checkboxes which set the Value true/false if checked or not. This worked so far. But when i open the Element oder change the FormMode to View, the checkbox isn't checked anymore. It shows an empty checkbox. I missed some setting, but i don't know which one. I'm not that experienced with PowerApps.


Can anyone help? Thanks a lot

What is your Default property on the Checkbox?  In general, it should be set to Parent.Default  If you've changed that around, then consider putting back to that.  Also, verify the the Parent property of your DataCard is set to ThisItem.whateverField   Insert the name of the column that is the yes/no column you have into whateverField

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
