Please be so kind as to read my full post before responding.
Thank you for your consideration.
I am using ComboBoxes in my PowerApps.
However, those look and behave differently in PowerApps Studio/Maker in the browser in Windows than in the PowerApps App in mobile devices, primarily tested with 2 Android devices.
In PowerApps Studio the ComboBox basically looks like a DropDown:
However, expanding the same ComboBox in the same App on my Android device yields:
PS: Yes, there is a lot of white empty space here from the Android screenshot, because the expanded ComboBox always expands to this whole screen covering size (irrespective of any control property, in particular, the number of items)
I have two issues, questions regarding this:
PowerApp: Modified, 5/28/2019, 5:22:59 PM, PowerApps Relase 3.19052.19
Session ID: 6eca22ea-0e44-4b7d-8a7f-807d958352f5
I have tested on my devices, and I had not noticed before, but that is also the behaviour I am getting, I think it is by design.
If you change the padding sizes of the combo box, does it change the way it looks at all?
I am aware that this is not a bug but just the current design/implementation of the PowerApps App.
I am complaining about this particular design/implementation.
If I change the padding of the combobox, the shown elements change, but not the overall ugly white drop down.
Here's an example multiplying the left padding with 10 and top padding with 5.
The items moved to the right and down but the overall thing still covers basically the whole screen.
yeah, same, I did read somewhere, they are overhauling the studio and changing a load of stuff in Microsoft Fabric, so fingers crossed, they may fix it, but you're right, it does look amatuerish right now... I dont think there are any work arounds either.
