Unable to clearcollect on - OnView for sharepoint customized powerapps form

Hi

I am unable to clear collect a collection in one view that I am switching to on - OnView of sharepoint customized form. this view has a data table and a gallery that is connected to a collection ABC which is also been referred to in another view as a data source. 

What I am actually trying to do is - when people view sharepoint list item, I am taking list field value with is delimitter seperated and building a record in collection ABC. this is not happening when I write clearcollect in - OnView action, while it works absolutely fine when I do that same thing on button click. 

 

 

here is the formula I am using - ClearCollect(ABC,ForAll(Split(TrimEnds(SharePointIntegration.Selected.recordFieldValue),"#"),{Column1: First(Split(Result, ",").Result).Result, Column2: First(LastN(Split(Result, ","),7).Result).Result}))

Dang. Worked.

The issue was that, in OnView of SharePointIntegration we need to only assign variables and navigate to screens. then on the OnVisible property of the screen we need to write the exact logic of collecting data to collection.

 

Freaking annoyed, as it took more than 4 days to figure.
