BUG : DatePicker on Powerapps not showing Calendar - Need help !

Hello everyone,

 

I am stuck with one mother of a problem :

My DatePickers are not showing the Calendar anymore !

 

What I have :

I have created a carpooling application. I have set 3 DatePickers throughout my application.

First one is supposed to be a filter on the BrowseGallery screen. It is filtering Items on one Date field. I've added it through "Insert" tab > Controls dropdown > DatePicker and is set to

Second and Third one are DataCards from my Sharepoint List. They appear on the Edit and Detail Screens.

 

What is my problem :

When testing my app, I click on the little calendar icon. normally that action should display a mini calendar to pick a date, but it is not showing anymore. I can still enter a date in the text field, and when i save, it is well saved in my SP List.

 


What i tried:

Because i've customize my three datepickers, I've tried to simply add one "normal", from the Insert tab > Controls > DatePicker.

Just that, no customization. If I launch my app and click on the little calendar icon, nothing happens either.

 

 

So, my problem is really graphic, because users expect a datepicker to show a calendar ! It is tragic, because i've just noticed that and i have to send my app to production on thursday, i'm kind of a bit stressed right now.

 

Do you know why the calendar is not showing anymore on the date picker? Is it a PowerApps problem ? Or is it coming from my app? Can you help me please?

Hi @Gaëlle,

 

The testing from my side of the DataPicker works:

Picker.gif

 

There should be no property available for the DatePicker control to allow user to disable the Calendar selection.

There is one property available to disable the whole control:

DisplayMode – Whether the control allows user input (Edit), only displays data (View), or is disabled (Disabled).

 

Make sure it is configured to Edit.

Re: BUG : DatePicker on Powerapps not showing Calendar - Need help !

Hello @v-micsh-msft !

Thank you for your time,  I don't understand what is happening.

Here are two screenshots from my solution :

- I added a new DatePicker without any customization, it has all the default values (like DefaultDate is Today()), and DisplayMode is Edit. Here it is on my BrowseScreen1 (my other datepicker are a bit customized, but normally everything should work fine):calendar01.PNG

 

- Now, I run my app, and click on the little calendar icon . You can see there is no big difference, just the little icon has a dot line on the left side. The calendar does not show up.calendar02_clicked.PNG

 

 

 

 

This is, unfortunately, all i can show, because there is nothing to see, really.

 

I tried to add a default DatePicker on each of my screens : BrowseScreen1, DetailScreen1, EditScreen1 and BookingValidationScreen. Everytime it is the same, the default datepicker with DisplayMode.Edit is not showing calendar.

If I try to run Developper Tools when running my app, I have 2 warning saying :

- "Error in source links : request failed with status 404

asset URL : https://cdn-paaprodweu.azureedge.net/v3.18064.24.80921456/studio/openSource/modified/winjs/js/base.j...

Source Link URL : base.min.js.map"

- "Error in source links : request failed with status 404

Source Link URL : AppMagic.WebAuthoring.js.map"

 

I don't really know if these errors have nothing to do with my problem but well. But maybe it is my problem, because I have enabled CDN on my dev tenant.

 

Because on other client's tenant, I can put a datepicker and make it work fine.

 

If you have any idea, please let me know Smiley Wink

Hi @Gaëlle,

 

Apologize for the late response.

What is your current sitaution?

Could you please explain a bit for the following part?

"

"

From my point, it seems the control cna't find its trigger content, a fiddler trace might help to find out what the DatePicker is trying to call out when the icon is clicked.

Michael

Hi @Gaëlle,

 

I'm having the same problem. Did you ever found a solution for this?

 

Thanks!

Hi @JanV,

I'm sorry, it's been a while.

I could make it work on my customer's tenant, I don't remember why exactly it did not work.

I know this is a frustrating answer, but I had to rebuilt my app completely at some point. And it worked.

 

Could you give more information on your issue, how you built your app, etc.. so we could try and help you ?

 

Have a nice day

Re: BUG : DatePicker on Powerapps not showing Calendar - Need help !

Hi @v-micsh-msft,

Sorry for the late response too, but I had to manage several issues and other projects between my blocking situation and now.

So my app works well now, I don't have anymore problems on date picker fields.

 

About the CDN, at that time, it was the only thing I've changed between the state my calendar worked and the state they did not work anymore. I activated the SharePoint Online CDN on my dev tenant.

 

Since that, I've recreated my app on my customer's tenant, everything worked fine.

These days, on my dev tenant, CDN is activated, but I only have clientsideassets and a custom library as cdn Origins. I don't know if it has something to do with the issue.

 

But well, everything is fine now, just I can't remember properly if I did perform a specific action (except for rebuilding entirely the app) to get it working.

 

HAve a nice day

Re: BUG : DatePicker on Powerapps not showing Calendar - Need help !

Thanks for the quick answer.

 

In my app I'm dividing one large list into several tabs with on each screen a form that only shows some items from that list.

Every other control is working fine but when I came to the date picker controls I couldn't open them. I've tried adding date pickers outside of the form to see if that would solve it, but no luck.

 

I'm not really in the position to recreate the whole app. My dev time at the client is limited so starting all over would mean that I'm going to exceed the original estimations.

 

I've noticed that entering the date manually (typing) is possible. The form saves without a problem. This is my current workaround.

 

Is F12 the only method to debug your form?

Adding @v-micsh-msft, maybe he can also help.

Re: BUG : DatePicker on Powerapps not showing Calendar - Need help !

Hi,

Im having the same problem.

 

Have a basic form where I need to enter a date range(from, to). The forms datasource is a sql server table. The relevant date fields in the sql server table are Date data type.

 

I can manually enter the dates and save the record to the table but cant get the date picker calendars to display.

 

So I then created a new, very basic screen, with only a few basic fields, but the date pickers still didnt display the calendar.

 

Is there a solution to this problem?

thanks
