Screen is locking up entire edit environment.

I'm just finishing up a app that has multiple form screens the users fill out and navigate through. At the end I patch all the data together and save it to a SharePoint List. I have one screen, that has decided to stop working. If I open or select it the entire environment locks up. I tried deleting it and even doing that just gives me the loading wheel and it never comes back. I tried commenting out the reset/and patch functions for that screen thinking that maybe I had something weird going on there, but that didn't make any difference. 

 

Just wondering if anyone else has had an issues like this, and what they did to resolve. There's I can't find a way to edit it out without the screen trying to load. I'm worried I'm going to have to start over if I can't get this screen deleted at a minimum.

I ended up just working backwards through my autosave versions until I found a spot where the screen wasn't broke. It happened somewhere around when I started implementing my reset and patch buttons So I'm going to be extra attentive to that when I start back on that.  I'm not entirely sure what I did, but PA didn't like it. Fortunately I didn't loose a ton of stuff. 

 

It's odd to me that just one screen would nuke the whole environment when selected. I got as far as deleting everything inside, but I couldn't save and it would not let me delete the screen entirely.

Hi,

 

Thanks for your follow up post! I am glad that you were able to get this figured out. Hopefully this will prove useful for future communities users who are having similar issues.

@alrez Unfortunately what ever the issue was carried back far enough on my previous versions that it ended up being more efficient to just start over. I've tried several different ways to remove that page, but it locks over the minute I load that screen. Even if I delete everything off the form it just locks up. form is shuffled the cards. It's very frustrating there isn't a way to load  a page and lock all the automated updating so that the user can make some changed EX. Delete a card without the edit environment trying to instantly update/scan.  I though I had it figured out when I posted my follow up post. 

 

I would say that restoring is likely the move for other people. I don't know what happened, but the order of all the fields was wrong and they were overlapped in weird ways that lead me to believe that it wasn't on my end. Oh well.
