No item to display

Hi, 

 

I would like to create a 'Form' from a BLANK new screen in PowerApps. (Attached the settings)
When I preview the app, it shows "No item to display"

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Sam

Hi @samsam ,

 

The Form is usually in Edit mode by default, and Edit mode requires an item to edit - without it, you get this message and a blank form.

Try changing the mode of the form to New - you can do this either by setting the Default mode of the form to FormMode.New or, if you're using a button or navigation from somewhere else to get here, add NewForm(FormName) to the expression to put the form into New mode.

If you just want to test, put a button on the screen and set it's OnSelect: property to 

NewForm(FormName)

where FormName is the name of your form, and hopefully you should see what I mean.

Hope this helps,
