Change SPO List Details Pane to Custom View Form

Copper Contributor

I have a SPO list for which I've customized the New, Edit, and View forms. The customized View form opens when you double-click an item when in list view, but if you select an item and then click on the "open the details pane" icon (little circled i) the form that opens is the unedited default view.


Is there any way I can have the customized View form open when someone clicks the info button?

@H-M-P Unfortunately, this is not possible using the SharePoint default capabilities. Power apps customized forms open only when using new/display/edit forms and not while using details pane.


However, you can prevent editing list items via the Details pane (or via Quick Edit/Grid view) from List settings > Advanced Settings. When the PowerApps form is used to govern field settings with logic rules, it often makes sense to prevent edits via the details pane.
