I decided to replace the Gallery with ComboBox as a workaround.

For a current workaorund, please take a try to save the Gallery.selected into a variable, follow the steps mentioned in the thread below:

Gallery selected item only works once


See if that would work.


Besides, as the issue is within the PowerApps studio on IOS device, there is no proper method that could be used to check the details, and I can't reproduce the issue from my testing Device, IOS version 11.3.1.


Please consider rise a support ticket, then provide the Session ID of the issue Reproduce, session ID could be found under:

I've encountered the same issue. It seems the Gallery control does not function properly on iOS when selecting a child object of a specific gallery item when there are more than 2 items in the gallery. I'm using a horizontal gallery with title and subtitle overlay. So each gallery item contains the following objects:

  • image object
  • overlay object
  • title object
  • subtitle object

Selecting items (other than the first 2) by clicking one of the item's child objects instead of the gallery item itself, the Gallery.Selected value is not changed to the correct item.


Again, it functions correctly on a desktop, etc. but does not work correctly on the iPhone app. Please advise ASAP.



I am experiencing the same issue.  In a Gallery with more than two items, selection does not pass the proper gallery selection to a form viewer on the next screen.  Some of the items have proper information, others do not.  This only occurs within IOS, not on Web/Android/ app designer.   I've been able to observe this behaivior even in the default three-screen app template PowerApps generates from a SharePoint list.  If the list has more than two fields, the form viewer does not display the correct data from the current gallery selection.  Has anyone found a solution to this issue?  Creating a collection won't work for us as our app needs to browse over 2000 records. 



(UPDATE: this is what was causing the issue for me:

So all of a sudden (as of yesterday), I can't set a Form (Item property) to display Gallery1.Selected. It puts a red squiggly under "Selected" and says "Invalid Formula. Expected a value compatible with DataSource".

The data source is just a sharepoint list with nothing fancy going on. I could do this last week. I have other apps that are doing it right now! But no more. What is going on?
