Unable to resize datacard height?

I created a custom form based on a list in SharePoint. A couple of the datacard fields have somehow grown larger than they need to be, but I can't for the life of me find a way of resizing the height.

 

As you can see in the screenshot, the datacard has white space underneath it. When I drag the resize box nothing seems to happen. If I set the height manually in the datacard's settings, nothing happens. I read elsewhere there was a solution where the ErrorMessage component could cause resizing issues. I deleted this, and still it won't resize.

Any help would be great!

Re: Unable to resize datacard height?

I had the same issue @v-yutliu-msft . Thank you for clearing up point #2. While I disagree with that functionality, at least I know it exists now and I can plan around it. My fix has been to have Different forms on the same screen. Attachment controls often take up a lot of vertical space so I put them in their own form, and I let my other controls take up their normal amount of vertical space in their own form.

Re: Unable to resize datacard height?

Hi @toby95,

Do you want to resize your data card’s height?

Could you tell me have you made other configurations on the data card?

Could you tell me whether you want to customize a Share Point list’s form or create a tablet app?

As the picture you showed,it looked more like an edit form of a tablet app,so I made a test according to this.

Two points may effect resizing the data card:

1、 the data card’s widthfit:if it’s true,you can’t resize its width.

2、 The form’s layout.The left part’s height will effect the right part’s height.If the content in left part needs three rows to show,the right part will can’t shorten to a height shorter than three rows.

You may adjust according to these two items.
