New print function in powerapps - has the issue with sharepoint been resolved

I was so excited when the new print() function came out in powerapps and then immediately was disappointed since I use sharepoint lists.  I read that was why the print was not working. Has there been any resolution?

Where did you read that there was an issue printing from Power Apps when the data source was SharePoint?  I've used it and it works fine.

 

1) Create an app and add a Print page to the app

2) Add a display form to the page

3) Add a SharePoint list as a data source

4) Point the form at the list and set the item to be First(Datasourcename)

5) Run the app in the PC and click the Print button.

I think what @dmclaughlin is referring to is a SharePoint Integration.

@dmclaughlin there is no change in the limitation of the custom forms and the Print function.  Hopefully at some point soon.  I believe it is all related to the fact that the custom form is part of a larger page and not its own screen/app.

@RandyHayes OK, I get the question now.  The problem is the layout for the Print functionality is its own screen and since you can't add additional screens to the custom integrated form, you fail on my Step #1.  Personally, I don't hold out a lot of hope that we will ever see support for the current functionality in integrated SharePoint forms.  Too many underlying features would need to change.

@Pstork1 

I tend to agree on that hypothesis!

Thank you.. yes it is a huge limitation that I cant use this with sharepoint.  All my power apps are using sharepoint lists.  If anyone ever sees this fixed.. I'd love to know about it.

That is very frustrating.    To be able to do a so a print button in powerapps is a huge drawback.  Crazy that such a simple thing cant be resolved.

As I said, I don't think you will see this behavior change.  If you need to do printing I would suggest using a regular Power App.  Then embedding that app in a SharePoint page and using that for data entry instead of the customized form.

Well I have so many written this way now.. hard to spend time redoing.  So you are saying if I had a power app form, then add a data list for sharepoint list then it would work?

What @Pstork1 is saying is that if you put your customized form app into a standalone app and then embed that in your SharePoint site, you will then have the functionality from the app.  

This is to say that if you start your app as a full app rather then customized form, you will get the functions to work.

This is certainly a change to the way you may be doing this as a customized form (i.e. the user experience) but it will provide more flexibility and ability in the long run.
