Re: PowerApps - Combining Sort and Search Functions

The Search function is not delegatable in Sharepoint and will throw an error message.  The usual way to handle this in Sharepoint is to replace the Search function with a combination of Filter() and StartsWith(), both of which are delegatable:

 

SortByColumns(Filter('AMS_DETAILS (FY-19)',StartsWith("WHICHCAMP",TextSearchBox1.Text),"started", If(SortDescending1, Descending,Ascending)).

Re: PowerApps - Combining Sort and Search Functions

What is the type of the column "WHICHCAMP"? Based on the error message, it is not of type text - and the Search function only works for text columns.

 

You can change this to a Filter function, which works with other column types, something along the lines of

Filter('AMS DETAILS (FY-19)', TextSearchBox1.Text in WHICHCAMP)

Re: PowerApps - Combining Sort and Search Functions

If you hover the mouse on the word that is underlined by a bold squiggly line ('WHICHCAMP'), it should show a tooltip that gives you more information about the error. Can you see if you can find it and post it here? That will help us to find out what is wrong with your expression.

The following error is shown (snapshot).

"WHICHCAMP" is dropdown based selection.

How can I correct the error?

Re: PowerApps - Combining Sort and Search Functions

It means that the filtering will be done with the data that is downloaded by the client, and not done in the server. If your SPO list has 500 items or less (or 2000, if you increase the value in the app settings), then you will not have a problem.

 

Take a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/delegation-overview for more information on delegation.
