Power Apps: Edit Form Showing up Blank in Play Mode

Copper Contributor

Hello,

 

When using play mode to test if my app is working, I cannot figure out how to get my edit form to work. I have been successful with other apps but am encountering this problem now. I will attach pictures of the screen in edit mode and play mode, thanks!

I think every new user of Power Apps has hit this one. It look like you're using a Form, you need to set the form state on load. Easiest way to do this is in Onvisible property of the screen as set it to NewForm(YourFormName).

Forms are very restrictive, when you're feeling more adventurous have a look using Patch, this gives you the ability to create some great screen, bit more complicated when posting data but worth learning.
That worked, thank you!
