Bug/Issue "Delayed Load" option causes failure to Collect in OnStart for SQL Server views

So here's my scenario:

 

App.OnStart:  ClearCollect(ProjectLists, dbo.ProjectView)
(Dropdown List)dlProjectList.Items:  ProjectLists

When loading this in the app designer, everything seems to work fine.  But when loading a published version for use, the dropdown will end up empty.  This isn't 100% replicable, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but it seems like once it stops working it'll remain broken forever.

Turning off "Delayed Load" resolves this issue completely.

 

I'm not sure what Delayed Load does exactly, but my suspicion is that it's doing something like connecting the dropdown to the collection BEFORE the Collect runs in OnStart, because it's delaying the collection until "needed".  I haven't verified if the collection ends up with data and the dropdown is empty, or if the collection is also empty.

Re: Bug/Issue "Delayed Load" option causes failure to Collect in OnStart for SQL Server vi

Hi @aabrin,

 

See the explaination about Delayed Load in documentation here:

When we bind a table directly to a UI Element as in Option 1, the call to the table will happen automatically when the app loads even if the screen is not yet visible. If you have app with 10 screens and each screen has multiple controls directly bound to your data source, at load time, your app will make a pretty significant number of network calls as it evaluates each one of these controls across all screens. There is an experimental flag that one can set to avoid this behavior:

To be clear, I'm really just trying to communicate a bug I found, not really looking for a "solution", as the solution is turning off the option.

Hello @aabrin and @v-monli-msft.

I'm having the same issue: ClearCollect is not running consistently against a SQL View on mobile device only. Works fine in IDE Preview and Browser Player.

My code is not OnStart, but rather OnSelect of a button. Unfortunately, turning off Delayed Load DID NOT fix the issue.

Other suggestions? This app is now past due because of this issue.

Thanks
