Form Designer Loads Blank Screen or is Not Interactive

Why isn't my form created from UiPath.Form.Activities loading?


Form loads as blank white form. Minimizing or maximizing the form window results in the form content displaying. User is unable to interact with UI components like radio buttons.

On Iris Xe Graphics, UI elements don't refresh after they are initially rendered on applications that leverage Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) when hardware acceleration is active.

Below are a couple of applications that have shown this issue:

  • Amazon Chime
  • Amazon WorkSpaces
  • Amazon Backup
  • Mitel MiCollab
  • Luminar

This issue has been reported in the github community and the Intel Graphics Community.


Please try these two solutions and let us know which worked for you:

Approach #1 - CefSharp blank screen when using Form Activity Designer:

To force hardware accelerated GPU scheduling on Windows 10, use these steps:

  1. Open Windows Search.
  2. Search for ‘Registry’ and select the first option.

  5. Restart the system.
  6. Open Settings > Display > Graphics settings and toggle the option.
  7. Restart your computer to have the changes you made take effect.

Approach #2 - Update Intel® Iris Xe graphics card driver to the most recent version.

  1. Visit Support for Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics.
  2. Download the latest driver.
  3. Install driver.
  4. Restart the system.
or if you cannot find the latest Intel® Iris Xe graphics card driver for installing it, follow the next steps:

2) Restart your machine in the end.

3) Try to open the UiPath Forms designer.


If you continue to have the same behavior after following the above, raise a ticket for the Technical Support Team while providing a screenshot of the Intel® Iris Xe graphics card driver version from Device Manager -> Display adapters -> find Intel® Iris Xe graphics card driver -> right-click -> Properties -> Driver
