Can a power apps form display and accept data in a parent/child relation?

If I have one list of customers and another list of orders (more than one per customer) can I choose a customer and then display all of the orders for that customer in repeating lines in a section that automatically expands to it's contents and pages when the number of lines reaches a specified limit?

Hi @RKushner

Yes you definitely can.
Using:
- Gallery, Dropdown (customer), Patch and pagination control (refer to my post on Useful Features of Powerapps - pagination), and other to achieve what you want.

Hope this help.

Hi RKushner,

 

Could you please share the data source that you used here?

We could take use of the search, Filter and lookup function to filter the results based on the selected value, which I think should be able to meet the requirements you mentioned.

Please first take a look at the functions' description:

Filter, Search, and LookUp functions in PowerApps

There are some limitations regarding the data sources when using the function above, more information, please see:

Understand delegation

If you have any further questions, please feel free to post back.
