Is this a bug in PowerApps? - "App Run OnStart" button not clickable

Hello

 

I hope someone can shed some light on this strange issue I'm having about the Run OnStart button.

 

For one of my app, I noticed that I'm not able to click the "..." button to "Run OnStart". Please refer to the screenshot below.

 

The Power App authorising version is 3.21094.25

 

It's very frustrated for not able to trigger and run the code in app OnStart section.

 

Many thanks

 

Steven

Hi @StevenZ 

 

 With the recent version of PowerApp. if you really need that options please try the following steps 

 

1. File > Settings > General > scroll down to the last until you see "App.OnStart"

Once you enable then if you click the three dots on your app > you will see the option. 

 

PS: Please read the description of App.Onstart 

 


Hope it helps.

Thanks for your response @ragavanrajan, I saw that option already and tried turning it on before. It prompted me to do a full screen refresh which I then did, however, the setting was not saved after the screen refresh.

 

Anyway, in short, turned it back on (without screen refresh) and it worked. 

Thanks @ragavanrajan, it helped in my first app. I am new to this platform and this is the first time I have searched for help in community.

Kudos to @StevenZ for asking this question.

No worries @shaghiljamal .Glad it helped.
