disable or ignore a screen?

I'm trying to figure out where these warnings are coming from:  

SukieP_0-1633974560574.png

Lots of "We cannot convert an empty text value to a number" without a control identified.  

 

To help narrow it down, can I tell PowerApps maker to ignore a screen?  (like we can comment a property with '//'.)  I've put a lot of work into a screen and don't want to delete it.  Thinking it might be the source of the warnings.  

 

Thanks.

Yes, very annoying that the monitor does not show the control, or the control that derived the function.  Would love to see some changes in that area.

 

What you are looking for in your app will be some place that you have a function like Value(someTextInput.Text)

This will cause the errors you are seeing.  Change those to IfError(Value(someTextInput.Text), 0)

 

Perhaps that will give some clues.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
