SubmitForm validation



Has a bug been introduced where SubmitForm causes "An entry is required or has an invalid value" 


It works the second time around however this was working a few months ago when I originally created the application. 


The Form is connected to a SQL database and editing the app through the web interface. Publishing and testing through iPhone with latest PowerApps.


I do not really want to use Patch as there is a heap of controls (Pen, Images, DataControl etc)

Re: SubmitForm validation

A little more information.  I noticed that the EditForm.Valid property was always set to false even when the data was valid. Upon calling SubmitForm the Valid property would switch to true enabling the submit to occur on the second attempt.


Just need to know whether there is anything I can do correct this?

Re: SubmitForm validation

Hi @jmartin,


Please take a try to use the validate function to check the data value, see if there are any special parts missing.

Validate function in PowerApps


Further, please take a try with Errors function after the submit function, and save the Error data into a collection, which should be helpful to take a futher investigation on this.
