Autoselect on gallery



I have a PowerApp where in the left side there are two galleries. Gallery1 displays an item name, and Gallery2 displays cases related to the item selected in Gallery1. So one gallery filtering the other gallery. On the right side of the screen there is a form displaying the case selected in Gallery2. 


Everything works. But I have a problem, since Gallery2 does not automatically select the top item in the gallery. Sometimes there is only one case available in relation to the particular item selected in Gallery1, but it is not autoselected. It would save a lot of clicks if Gallery2 always selected the top item. 


Is there anyway to do that? 


I have tried to make the default in Gallery2 the top item by setting the default to this: First('database'.CaseNum) , but it appears not to work. The database is the items of Gallery2, and the CaseNum is where I would like the first case to be selected. 


I have attached a picture, where you can see that something is selected in Gallery1 but nothing is autoselected in Gallery2.

Try this code in the Item property of your form.

It is just returning 'No item to display' 😞

Re: Autoselect on gallery

Did you link the form to a datasource? What fields does the form contain in Edit Fields? What mode is your form being displayed in (New/Edit/View)?

Hi @C-Jac ,


If there is only one item in gallery, it will be auto- selected, but not when there are more than one items.

So you can try the following formulas on items property of Form:

Although this work around doesn't make the auto-selection of gallery done, the form will always show the first item.

Hopefully this can help you.


Best regards,
