Acessibility and Conditional Formatting?




I'm working through adding accessibility features to an app I created. I was able to add tab indexes of 0 to everything and most work as expected however I have a star Icon that I'm using for favorites on a gallery that still won't be hit with tab when the index is 0 or any other positive number. 


I do have conditional formating on the star to show hollowed/filled dependent on if it's in a user's favorites. Is there some sort of issue with conditional formatting and tab indexing icons? Every other icon on the gallery works with tab indexing except for this one. The accessibility checker also doesn't through a warning about there being no tab indexing on the icon so I'm fairly certain it's set properly. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Acessibility and Conditional Formatting?

HI @Newbie ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that the Tab Index functionality would not work in the Star icon within your Gallery?

Could you please show more details about the conditional formating that you mentioned?


Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.


Please consider re-create a new app based on your data source, then try it again, check if the issue is solved.

Re: Acessibility and Conditional Formatting?

Hi @v-xida-msft , 



Here is the formatting. 



If(Icon_Favorite.Fill=White, Navigate(Screen_Favorites), Navigate(Screen_Favorites_List))

Basically if it's filled white, direct to a screen to save as favorite, if it's filled blue, take the user to their favorites list to manage. 


Accessibility Label/ToolTip:

If(Icon_Favorite.Fill=White, "Save as Favorite", "Manage Favorites")

Matches the actions on the star.



If(!IsEmpty(Filter(UserFavorites,Email=User().Email,ThisItem.Title exactin Title)), DarkBlue, White)

Searches the list of favorites to see if the user has a favorite for that item saved. If so updates the fill. 


I can try to recreate it with another app. In this app all the other buttons on the gallery (more info button, run button) do what they need too and can be tab indexed but for some reason the favorites star will not be. Any more ideas?
