Circular progress bar in power apps

I've got offline sync up-and-running but there's only one thing I can't get rid off and that's the progress bar in the top of the header. At startup I check the connection and when there is none available I load everything from a local collection. The app is running fine but there's a 'working' or 'refreshing' progress bar always running in the header. Why is this one running (maybe because of the PowerApps container app wants to connect to the internet to check for new versons?) and/or how can it be stopped?

Hi AGVZZI,

 

Could you show me more details about the progress bar? What’s the code you are using for it?


If possible, please share a screenshot for this “a 'working' or 'refreshing' progress bar always running in the header”.


I will help reproduce and confirm it on my side.

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Good morning and thanks for fast responding,

 

I have a PowerApp with two connections. One to SharePoint and one to Office 365 Outlook.

 

When the first screen in shown in the OnVisible I try to load data. The code is as follows:
If(Connection.Connected;
   ClearCollect(LocalAgendas; Filter(Office365.CalendarGetTables().value; DisplayName = "Talents"))
;
   LoadData(LocalAgendas; "Agenda"; true)
);;
SaveData(LocalAgendas; "Agenda")

 

There also is a label on th screen with some code in the Text property: If (Connection.Connected; "Connected"; "Offline").

 

And when we start the app in a connected state all goes well. A circular progress bar is show in the top of the screen and after a short time it disappears. When starting our PowerApp in offline state on our smartphone the circular progress bar never disappears. Not even when navigating away from the first screen and landing on the second screen.

Is this normal behavior? Or a 'bug' in the PowerApps container app which we use to launch our PowerApp?

 

Hope you can help.
