My PowerApp has a lot of locally-calculated Fields (100+) with Slider selectors - it works perfectly when I play it through my Chrome Browser, from my company's O365 PowerApps Portal. Today I loaded the Windows 10 PowerApps App on my PC - and also on my Android phone: I was able to log in to my company's MSFT domain successfully on both devices and then played the same PowerApp - virtually none of the calculated Fields are displaying any content within the Windows 10 App - works on Android no problem. Is there a setting I might be missing or something? Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Paul - I don't know why I did not get a notification that you had replied. I think the experience with W10 App is "pot luck". I tried it again, today and the Slider values are updating - even though I have not made any changes.
However, the "Total" value is still not populating - which is strange, because it is a very, very simple formula - and it still works perfectly on the Web and Android/iOS.
Maybe I will advise the internal staff not to use the W10 App as it seems to have limitations.
Thanks for the reply - not sure that would prove anything as it works on-line in 365, in works on Android - it just doesn't work on the core, designated Windows 10 App...
Thanks - I tried Classic Rendering - it did not help.
For more context:
1. At the top of the Form, I have a pre-defined SUM Numerical Field, based on multiple numerical values from within the Form layout - this does not populate on the Windows App version:
2. Within the Form, I have (105) Sliders which feed the TextInput Numeric Values I have explained above - they were created to take a numerical value from the Silder and display them as a currency value in the TextInput Field - some of these show the correct values, but many show no value at all:
You can do what you do. First the boxes are text and you don't get the text by the .Text attribute. Also you want to have numbers and not text so you have to convert them by the Value() formula before you can add them together.
So do this:
Surround this by a text() formula like:
Or do this to get the same you have, but I would take the first.
"$" & Text(Sum()) & ".00"
For the textboxes.text you do like this:
Text( Switch(Slider1.Value, 1,1517 ,2,2925 ,3,6740 ), "[$-en-US]#,###.#0", "$-en-US")
And rename your boxes to a better name like V1, V2, V3, etc.
Hope this helps.
Oh forgot to mention you should first reference one of your 'value' textboxes in another label and see if it returns indead a value. So one testlabel.text with:
Value(V1.Text) // this should return a value, else the formatting off you textbox problaly is not allowed
Thanks - I will try to understand your instructions. However, all of my formula's already work - the point is that they are sometimes not displaying in the Windows 10 PowerApps App - they work/display perfectly on the web portal and on Android. I don't see how updating (105) formulas - that already work - to other formulas that probably work equally well - will make a difference.
But I will test a few.
Thanks for looking into this for me. I could not understand your instructions - but I also think that it would not resolve my issue. As you can see on the screenshot - taken using the Windows 10 App for PowerApps - only some calculations are displayed when the Slider is in use - but most are not:
Given they all use the exact same formula and parameters, I do not know how to fix this. Everything displays perfectly on the O365 PowerApps web Portal - and on the Android App!
Thanks again for your attention on this - very much appreciated!
Made a small Sample app and it works fine in the Windows 10 WebApp.
Wonder if you did set the default, min and max for you're sliders and in the switch use all off the values?
Attached I put in the Sample file, so you can take a look at the formula's.
btw, I would move away from the W10 webapp. You can make an app like experience when using chrome. See video how to do this:
