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 :(.
Solved! Go to Solution.
For what it's worth, this is still an issue in early 2020, almost 4 years later.
I have a filtered gallery and when using Patch on a form, if using Gallery.Selected the form or fields in question will patch correctly but then the data refreshes or reloads the first record in the gallery, not the selected record.
The work-around of setting gallery.selected to a global variable and then referencing that everywhere (Item property and Patch function) works but was a pain to research and resolve.
It's not actually a problem, which is why it's not been 'fixed'.
You shouldn't use gallery.selected to keep track of an item you're changing. If you want the same effect, you should store the ID of the item you are editing in a variable, and do a lookup for the item matching that ID instead of using gallery.selected, which is intentionally transient.
Thanks for the replay @davidstone
I have a gallery and a form and actually use a variable instead of Gallery.Selected to look up the item. But once the form is submitted, the gallery jumps to the first row.
Ah yes, there's sadly no control over the scroll position of a gallery, which can be a real pain. Additionally, if you update a record on which the gallery is based, then the gallery has to reload to get your new changes, and thus the current scroll position is lost. ☹️
