App crashes when checking variables from the command bar if a Named Formula is defined with a variable

When I defined a Named Formula as a calculation with a variable it works fine, and all calculation is done correctly. However, when I try to check the Variables from the command bar, it crashes the app. The variable is set to the selection of a dropdown box. When I substituted the variable with directly referring to the dropdown box's selected title, I can check the Variables from the command bar without crashing.

@AdiAfiq, Can you please share what expression you have on Named formula which causes the crash? What are the steps to repro the issue?

In a new App, the variable was defined as:

Set(varName, Dropdown.Selected);

in the OnChange properties of a new Dropdown box with DropDownSample in the items.


The Named Formula was defined as:

NamedFormula = varName.Value;


After that, check the Variables in the App by either:

View > Variables (in legacy ribbon)


... > Variables (in modern command bar)


The App would then display a pop up:


Clicking the close button would then proceed to close the App and send the user back to the Apps List
