Combo Box - Search stopped working

Hi 

 

I am using PowerApps with SharePoint Online Lists.

 

Up to about a week ago all worked well.  I would select the chevron on my combo box.  I could start entering the string I was looking for and the number of values being displayed would reduce, the more characters I typed in.  I have an Index on the column in the list I am searching for which is of type "Single Line of text".

 

About a week ago, the number of items in the list went over 500 items.  Also the version of PowerApps went from version 3.18081.19 -> 3.18.81.22.

 

Since about a week ago, when I start entering the string to search for the number of values being displayed does not reduce.

 

I have tried using a collection rather than straight to the SharePoint list [ ClearCollect(mycollection,myList); ] and using myCollection as the Items property of the combobox, so any 500 item limit should not come into play.

 

Anybody any ideas ?

 

Thanks

 

Nigel

Re: Combo Box - Search stopped working

Hi @NigelP,

 

First of all, please check on the collection, see if all the items are collected. 

 

Secondly, please check on the combo box, make sure that:

1. ComboBox1.Items=CollectionName.ColumnName

2. Primary text and SeachField are selected to the column.

3. Make sure that Allow searching is on.
