Hi @kmk ,


To better understand your issue:

1. Do you want to show the flag value in the App form when the form is in edit mode?

2. Whether there are three fields corresponding to Flag1,2,3 in SPlist or not?


Actually, we can insert a custom card to dispaly the values of Flag. Custom card is just a container of controls and doesn't affect the value of Field, because the DataField property is blank and don't have Update property.


For example, at App2 form, first add a custom card, second create a label in it, third set the Display Mode of Label to View and set Text property to Flag1, so the form will always show the Falg1 value whatever the mode is.

For Form3, the only thing to note is to creat two label to show the values of flag1 and flag2.
