Confirgure list form with JSON

Copper Contributor

Hi there,

I'm having some trouble in conditionally displaying a text depending on if it's a new form or edit form.

The following piece of JSON (when on New form type)

* JSON for Header *
  "elmType": "div",
  "txtContent": "=if([$Title] == '', 'Create new item' ,[$Title])"

returns the message:

"Failure: Title was not found on the data object"


Is there a way to have this sort of condition? Or is there a better way of doing it? 

I know with Power Apps will achieve that but I can't use Power Apps.

Ok, I found the issue.

I have 

{ "debugMode": true }



Oh dear me.

By removing it, fix the problem. 

@NarleyBrittes  Hi there. I am having the same issue but not sure what you did exactly to resolve it. So can you remember how to managed to get [$Title] to be recognised as a data object? Please share and I would be so grateful :)

Hi @MbethC. In my case I had { "debugMode": true } in my JSON enabled. I just removed that bit and it was all good after that.
