"the request was not sent or there was no response from the server" issue in offline mode

Hi Experts,

I am trying to create an app for offline. When I open an app without internet connection I get error on top of app saying "The request was not sent or there was no response from the server. Check your internet connection. Server response:"Entity name" failed: Something went wrong"

I believe there should not be any message error messages even if your in offline mode.

How can I get rid of it?

Thanks in advance.

Powerapp has limitation

Connection.Connected returns the wrong value during OnStart in Power Apps for Windows (July 21, 2020) While offline, Connection.Connected may wrongly return true immediately after starting an app in the Windows app. As a workaround, delay when the logic depending on it is executed by using a Timer control.


So answer would be set timer duration property with 30000 as 30 seconds.
check 4rth point for better understanding.
