I want to change the layout of a form. switched the Layout column to 12 to fit to grid.
It happens very often, that I take the mouse and klick a dot just to expand or to shrink the data card and suddenly it is shrinked to zero width. That happening 8 of 10 times and it makes it almost impossible to make progress.
Sadly I got no Win10 machine so I cannot install the PowerApp Client for now. I am working with Chrome which works much better than IE.
Any hint how to avoid this??
Solved! Go to Solution.
I found my x and Y values (shown in the advanced tab/pane) where off so this may be related to why I am seeing this strange behaviour. I would be curious to know if others who see their width go to zero if the X and Y data card postions where a factor in this problem.
I was having this happen to me as well (but not every time). What I've found is if I rename the Form after I've connected the form to a data source, the issue will occur where trying to resize the data cards with the mouse will set the width to zero. If I rename the form first or not rename it all, the resizing works fine.
I am also experiencing that data cards randomly change position in forms, especially horizontal forms. I am using both relative positioning with formulas in the X,Y, W and H fields as well as hard coding the positions.
This is a bug. Here is a workaround: Save the app, publish it, close it and then reopen in Edit. Then I was able to resize. Seems to happen after you rename the form. Get it saved then reopen and you're good.
Unfortunately this isn't reliable. I have an app that I've saved, published, and edited many times, and still the issue occurs.
It's seriously frustrating, what's equally as frustrating is setting a datacard to a height of 60, for it to revert to 80. Somewhat inexplicably
I was having a similar issue just now and found that one of the cards had a hidden error message lingering at the bottom of the card. Because it is not visible, I didn't realize this, and this alone was not allowing me to change any of the field sizes in that row. Once I moved the field up, all was well with the world 🙂
