Components global variables looses its value..

i have a issue on my custom component that ive working for a while...
Actually i cant work with variables in my component and i saw me forced to use the classic collection instead.
For example, i have a button that sets a global variable to "true" and works fine... but when pressed any other button that do another action or sets another variable automatically the first var gets empty.
And when i go to view all the variables of the component in "File/variables/COMPONENT" are all blank as its never gets any value...
I dont know what must be the problem... anyone having the same issue???

Re: Components global variables looses its value..

Constantly having issues like this, both with components and other areas.


Best thing to do is to go into each property where its happening, copy the value out of it, put garbage (anything) into it, and then repaste it back in.  

Often this "fixes things" - until the next time it happens.

PowerApps Studio has been a MESS lately...  even more so than usual...

Re: Components global variables looses its value..

Hi @Romansx ,

I'm afraid it's not supported to use global variable in components currently in PowerApps.

The thing is - Global variables, ScreenNames, and pretty much ANYTHING specific to your App is a no-no for a component.  This (IMHO) is by design.  Components are meant to be portable.  You should be able to create a component in one place and use it in many.  If it relies on global variables or other aspects of your App - it will not be portable.

Here're some issues for your reference:

@v-yutliu-msft  what??? you definitely can set variables in components... i know well that these var's have specific validation inside de component and cant call outside them... thats supposedly correct...

what I mean is that the variables within the component lose their value... maybe I misspoke and said global variables,
