SubmitForm command changes Gallery.Selected item record

I have an app connected to a SharePoint list. I have a form that is in Edit Mode, and loading from a Gallery via .Selected property. After submitting changes successfully, the Edit Form control is changing the .Selected value to the first record in the data source set. This should not be happening, it should just load the currently selected record. I noticed this change today and last worked on the app late last week. Anyone know why this would happen? I haven't changed anything in the code since last week :(.

 

Thanks!

This should now be resolved. Please try and let us know.

Hi Murali.

 

I tried today but still not fixed. I have the latest update of PowerApps as well.

That should not be happening. I just pulled the latest PowerApps from Store and it worked for me.

 

Here is what I did.

 

I have an edit form whose Item is set to a Gallery's selection via Item = Gallery.Selected. I made some changes to form contents and submitted the form. The selection remained intact.

 

Can you tell me how you have wired things up so I can try on my end?

Glad to hear it's been resolved.

Has this bug been re-opended? I am seeing the same behaviour. After submit the edit form goes to the first item in the gallery. Not the record that was just created

I wonder if it is only an issue when your sort order is affected by your changes. For example my data is sorted by Modified, so when I update a record the sort order obviously changes and I lose my existing selection.

I've had the same problem where submitting a form causes the Gallery.Selected to change and therefore the form data changes. I managed to solve the issue by passing a variable into the form from the gallery button and anchoring my form data to the variable rather than the gallery.selected. 

 

Try this and let me know if it works...

 

1. In your gallery, the button that navigates to the form should create a variable when navigating. Here is an example statement:

OnSelect: Navigate(FormPage, ScreenTransition.Fade, {CustomVariable: Gallery.Selected})

This will create a customised variable (you can change CustomVariable to any name that suits you) based on the selected record, and then the form should be anchored to the variable rather than the gallery...

 

2. In your View and Edit forms, change the Item from Gallery.Selected to CustomVariable. When referring to specific fields you can also use the variable in this way, so rather than using Gallery.Selected.FieldName you can use CustomVariable.FieldName

 

When submitting the form, even if Gallery.Selected changes in the background, the CustomVariable stay the same until you go back to the gallery and select a different record. 

 

Hope this helps.
