The data source supplied to the function is invalid

Hello!

 

I have a Power App that is running great but when I go into the Power App I have a bunch of Red X's with the issue stating "The data source supplied to the function is invalid". If I click on the card with the error then click onto another card the X disappears. I have tried removing the Datacard and re-adding but that does not help.

 

Like I said it is running find but it bothers me that I have these X's all over my App. Has anyone seen this issue recently or have a resolution? It just started about two weeks ago.

It's actually been going on for quite some time.  

The errors are all runtime errors and are not formula errors and will not cause problems.

 

This is essentially happening because of the difference when running an app and editing an app in regard to the datasource being "ready".

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

@RandyHayes , so we can safely ignore these errors?

Yes, they are runtime errors in the designer - they will still work fine.

@RandyHayes, this issue is a PITA.  It is hard enough to debug a Power App without it displaying bogus errors. Has this been reported? Is MS working on fixing this issue?
