Cannot Update 'Attachments' in gallery

I have a gallery that displays items from the SharePoint list. In the gallery, I have added an attachment data card in the gallery to enable the user to download the attachment. However, when I try to update the attachment, the attachment is unable to update in the gallery itself and the SharePoint list.

 

so here the interface:

then, this is the coding for update button;

 

Set(
    varPA,
    View
);
ForAll(
    GalleryEdit.AllItems,
    UpdateIf(
        Stud_EC_PA,
        'ID_PA #' = Value(TextInput14.Text),
        {
            EC_PA_Name: TextInput6_8.Text,
            EC_PA_Level: TextInput6_11.Text,
            EC_PA_Cat: TextInput6_9.Text,
            EC_PA_Pos: TextInput4.Text,
            EC_PA_Cri: TextInput6_10.Text,
            Attachments: Attachments
        }
    )
)

 

 

Anyone who can help me to solve this problem?

Here are your obstacles:

1) In PowerApps currently, you can Only change attachments directly by utilizing a Form with an attachments control in it and then by using the SubmitForm action on the form.

2) You cannot put a Form in a Gallery, so you cannot do the above row by row.

3) As mentioned in #1, the form is the only option for attachment changes - so Patch, Update/IF, etc. will not change the attachments.

 

If you need this type of functionality, you will need to look at your design and consider alterations, or employ PowerAutomate to submit the attachments to a flow and have flow then alter the attachments of the record (certainly more work to achieve this).

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
