1. Save and Publish app again. Does it help?

2. Clear the cache and cookies of your browser, sign in again, and try it again. Does it help?

Did this only happen recently by the way?

@rafiq Some questions...does the app work in play mode for you? Is the Visible property for the the various controls on the CPT form screen (buttons, textinput etc.) dynamic?

Play never works... like a apps.... Edit the PowerApps and click on play button or F5 works for me.


visible property for application is not dynamic and buttons are not dynamic. it enabled by default true for visible


Used GalleryControls to load the data from the share point list. created textbox(Rows) and button(heading) to populate the data

Do you have any OnStart formulas for your app? Could there be errors there? You can test by copying your formulas to a button and checking for errors. Debugging an OnStart is notoriously difficult
