Icon not selectable in PowerApps form

Hello,

 

I am trying to add a button into a form within a datacard but cannot select the button once it is there. I have checked that there are no fields overlapping it, that the icon's displaymode is set to Edit and that it has been brought to the front in tree view and am still not having any luck. The form itself is long and needs to be scrollable so I cannot just place it on the form. Can anyone provide a solution to this issue?

You don't need a custom card for this...you can place your controls in the datacards all that you like.

 

Please keep in mind that controls inherit their parent display mode properties.  So, you CAN set a control to be in Edit display mode, but if the parent is NOT also in Edit mode, then it will not make a difference.

 

So, check your form mode and datacard mode to determine if it is inheriting from a parent.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Go to the form properties ---> Select Edit Field
Click on the 3 dot on the top right of the popup and create a custom card
Add that button in and try once
