Sharepoint Person field sometimes not working in ComboBox

Hi folks, 


I'm not sure whether it's a bug or not. I have an EditForm integrating with a Sharepoint List, in which there is a Person field. I can search a person by entering the name. However, it is working most of the them, but sometimes it doesnt work. 


Is it a bug ? or any workaround to get it solved?

Re: Sharepoint Person field sometimes not working in ComboBox

Hi @gavinleung ,

Do you mean that sometimes the combo box can not display its choice list?

If so, it is a known problem that refreshing data sources can cause Combo Box controls to show empty lists when published.

For now, I suggest you disable the IsSearchable property since the issue only manifests when it is enabled.

I've reported this to our product team. If there's any improvment, I will reply here.

Here's a similar issue for your reference:

Re: Sharepoint Person field sometimes not working in ComboBox

Hi @v-yutliu-msft , what I mean is that I have a combo box in the form linking the person field of the List. I can normally search an user within the box. But sometimes, it is not working. I have been finding any similar pattern, but none findings. 


Just like to see if there is anyone having the same issue.
