SharePoint form issue


I have created a form where data source is SharePoint where all fields are equivalent to SP fields. The form is not showing on play mode (2nd screenshot - sp2). Any ideas why this is happening?

Re: SharePoint form issue

Hi @Evelina 


make sure to set the type of form - check the defaultmode property of the form


if FormMode.Edit or FormMode.View - then you need to set the item property to the specific item to show the data


If defaultmode is set to FormMode.New - then you should see the form data in play mode

Re: SharePoint form issue

Hi @Evelina,
The default mode for new Edit Form controls is "Edit" - if there is no item to edit, the form displays as such.

If you're wanting to capture new data, set the Default Mode: property of the Edit Form to "New".

If you're wanting to edit a specific record, you need to tell the form which record that is, using the Item: property - either by referring to a gallery of items where one is selected such as Gallery1.Selected or using a specific LookUp() on your data source.

Hope this helps,
