Sharepoint list custom form behaviour like standard Modern interface

Hi there, new to Powerapps and using with Sharepoint Online (Office 365) so excuse me if this is obvious.


I'm trying to use the "Modern" look in views, forms, etc., in Sharepoint and mimic what I've done with "Classic" look and custom forms already created and working by creating PowerApps Custom forms for a list. So taking a custom list in Sharepoint in modern view I've created Custom forms using PowerApps and have found how to have seperate forms for Display, Edit and New as opposed to the standard one created that uses just one form .. all works ok with that.


What I'm now trying to replicate in the Custom form(s) is what the Modern interface already does as standard which is .. when clicking on an item in a Modern list the Display form is popped on the right of page, then when you choose the Edit All button is clicked the Edit form is popped on top on the right of page .. now critical part .. when you either Cancel the Edit or click the close "X" button top right or click somewhere on rest of the page the Edit form closes with the Display form still there, which if you then close that with "X" or clock somewhere on rest of page the Display form closes and list is back in focus. However using the Custom form, the DIsplay form is displayed the same, then when Edit All is clicked the Edit form appears on top .. BUT .. when you cancel the Edit form or close it or click elsewhere you are returned directly to the list and don't see the Display form first.


What do I need to do in the Custom form (or ??) to have the Edit form effectively pop "on top" of the Display form (stack like?) such that when the Edit form is cancelled or closed the Display form is revealed rather than straight back to list?


Thanks for an clues,

Re: Sharepoint list custom form behaviour like standard Modern interface

Hi @DerekPapworth,

Do you create separated forms to create, edit and view within your custom form? Or just only create single one form for creating, editing and viewing?

I have made a test on my side, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Re: Sharepoint list custom form behaviour like standard Modern interface

Hi Kris,


Yes I have three separate forms for create, edit and view and tried since post playing with the onSuccess event but that didn't help.


I'll submit an idea as you suggested to the ideas forum, thanks.
