Getting your data...

Hi All,

 

Do somebody know how can I change/remove the "Getting your data ..." text from the form when the filter didnt find a match? Sometimes it shouldnt find anything, but the "Getting your data ..." text is missleading, users are thinking that the system is still loading when actually it didnt find anything.

Hi @Papancsev ,

 

I think this message cannot be hidden so far, if you need this feature, consider to add an idea in below forum here:

Hi Mona,

 

I think its more like a bug than an improvement idea. 

When nothing is found it should say that and not "Getting your data..." as its not true.

Hi @Papancsev ,

 

Did you mean that when your users do not have the access to the data, then still get the same message when opening the app?

Re: Getting your data...

Seems this isn't really a built in option looking at the previous reply, but you can certainly devise a workaround!

 

Create a label with a Fill matching that of your form, then set the text to whatever message you may like to appear when the form finds no data. You can set this label's X/Y properties to a percentage of the form's total height/width so that it is placed over the "Getting your data" message, "replacing" it, regardless of any resizing that may occur to the form when displayed on different devices. May take some tooling to get it just right. Make sure that this is at the lowest layer of the controls present on this form so it doesn't impede interaction with any other controls.

 

Once you've got it all positioned correctly, set its OnVisible property as such:

If(
    IsEmpty(Filter(yourdatasource, your filter), True, False)
)

Which will cause the label to appear only when the filter turns up with nothing,  covering the default message.

 

Let me know if this works out for you!
