I am building a PowerApp that shows a Selection Summary( A compilation of multiple galleries of selected items within the PowerApp). Users can select upto 8 different selections ( 8 Galleries of selected items). Here's a screengrab when 8 Galleries are displayed at the same time.
The 'Visible' Property of each of the Galleries shown in the picture above depends on the value of a Global Variable associated with the Selection. For instance, Gallery with the label 'Mobile Plan Selection 1'will be visible only if its associated Global Variable value equals the following (CountMP=1).
Following this method causes 'Positioning issues' when certain selections are removed after customization. If the user removes a few selections from what's shown above, the screen looks like this.
How do I go about reordering the coordinates of these Galleries if some of the other galleries are not displayed?
For instance, if there are four random selections selected, then the Galleries should fit nicely in the screen in the space of the first four selections.
(I was thinking about using nested IF statements to fix this issue, but I wasn't too sure if that's the right method)
Can someone please help me with this issue? Any help would be massively appreciated.
Hi @iamsujith ,
Do you want gallery to automatically resize and position?
I‘ve made a similar test as follows:
Create three galleries on one screen
Set gallery1’s height:
Then,gallery1’s height will automatically adjust according to galledy3 and gallery5’s visible.The specific value needs to be set by yourself.You can also set the gallery’s width and X/Y.
If you want more intelligent resizing and positioning, I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum.Your precious advice will be very helpful for our work.

Hi @v-yutliu-msft ,
Thanks for taking your time to respond to my query. Nested if statements do not seem to do the trick for me because of the fact that every selection in my app (Mobile Plan Selection 1,2 and so on) shows data from multiple Galleries (around 5-6 ) and not from a single Gallery.
Please see the Tree View of the multiple Galleries(highlighted) for one of the selections (Mobile Plan Selection 1).
I liked the nested if statements and due to the fact that my data comes from multiple galleries, I had to apply the logic to every single gallery in this group (For instance, grpMP1 and grpMP2 has 5 Galleries and therefore I had to apply the nested if logic for every gallery in grpMP2 to position grpMP1 correctly if the former is not visible).
The app currently can show around 11 Selections and therefore has around 55 Galleries(11x5 Galleries =55 Galleries) and I think applying the same logic is going to take a lot of time.
Should I look into collating data from these multiple galleries into one collection and then look into applying the same logic again?
