The button action is not working in mobile [APP] - (OnSelect)



I need a help to understand why can i use the button in edit mode (Proview the app - F5) and when I open the app with cellphone [Mobile App], the button is not happen.


Basically the sistem works like that:

1-) The user need to inform the number of machine that they need to report (Picture 1)

2-) After choice, it will show the option like the picture 2 and then, the users will complete the informations and after that, click inthe button to up information in our database.

How i said, in the edit mode i could do this process perfectly, but when i tried to do this in my cellphone [Mobile APP)], I clicked in the button but did not work.


Anyone know the solution?

Thanks in advanced!

Re: The button action is not working in mobile [APP] - (OnSelect)

Hi @Rodrigo1 ,

Do you add the "Button" within your Edit form?

Could you please share a bit more about the formula you typed within the OnSelect property of the "Button"?

Which mobile device do you use? Android or iOS device? Which version is your PowerApps Mibile App?

Further, is there any error occurs when you run your app using your Mobile device?


Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side (PowerApps Mobile App version -- 3.19053.21, my iOS device version -- 12.3), and don't have the issue that you mentioned. Please check if the DisplayMode property of the "Button" has been set to following:





Please consider run your app in your web browser, then check if the issue still exists. Also please check if the version of your PowerApps Mobile App is the latest version, if not, please upgrade it to the latest version firstly.


Also please consider turn off the "Improved app rendering (final validation)" option within Advanced settings of App settings of your app, then re-publish your app, check if the issue is solved. Please also consider take a try to uninstall PowerApps Mobile App from your mobile device, and then re-install it again to fix this issue.
