Re: Is it possible to restrict Gallery to show only 1 record

I'll break it down for you.

 

FirstN will retrieve the first N records. E.g. FirstN(source,15) will return the first 15 records in source.

 

Last will retrieve the last record. e.g. Last(source) might return you (for example) row 30...

 

By using these together like so 

 

Last(FirstN(source, number))

 This will get the last record from the firstN records. So TLDR; the number you put there is what row will be given back in return.

That is possible, just adjust the gallery's Items property to select just one record, for instance with a call to Filter.

 

You might want to use a form instead of a gallery, since it's probably a better solution for showing a single record.

Hi Raynold,

 

You may consider to filter the gallery to show the records.

Or you could also consider to use First/FirstN function to return first or first set of records of a table on a gallery.

Please try it on your side.

Hi Mabel,

 

Could you please give the syntax on using the First/FirstN function to return first or first set of records of a table on a gallery.

 

Thanks!
