Combine Filter and Sorting in Gallery

Hello community,

I have the following problem:

 

I only want to see the data in a gallery that I have previously filtered and still want to have the option to search for individual items.

 

This is how it looks like:

I figured out how to create the code for filtering via the text search box and how to filter via the tiles individually:

 

Here is my code for filtering via the text search box: 

SortByColumns(Search([@Table1], TextSearchBox1.Text, "FIXEDASSETNUMBER","ACTIVITYCODE","BARCODE"), "FIXEDASSETNUMBER", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

 

Here is the code for filtering via the tiles:

 

If(

    Gallery1.Selected.Value = "All",

    Filter(

        Table1,

        StartsWith(

            "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",

            TextSearchBox1.Text

        )

    ),

    Filter(

        Table1,

        StartsWith(

            "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",

            TextSearchBox1.Text

        )&& OVERDUE = Gallery1.Selected.Value

    )

)

 

My question: How can I combine this code?

 

(I am working with a excel file as my data source)

 

Thank you very much for your help!

 

I hope the question has not been asked more often. Unfortunately, I have not found a suitable answer to this.

You are performing a Search and a StartsWith on the same column and the same TextInput.

Please consider changing your Formula to the following:

SortByColumns(
    Search(
        Filter(
            Table1,
            (Gallery1.Selected.Value = "All" || OVERDUE = Gallery1.Selected.Value)
        ),
        TextSearchBox1.Text, 
        "FIXEDASSETNUMBER","ACTIVITYCODE","BARCODE"
    ),        
    "FIXEDASSETNUMBER", 
    If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending)
)

This will filter your Table based on the selected value of the Gallery and then perform the search on that resultant table.  Then it will sort by the desired column.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

You can use the result of your filter to your Search function

SortByColumns(
    Search(
        If(
            Gallery1.Selected.Value = "All",
            Filter(
                Table1,
                StartsWith(
                    "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",
                    TextSearchBox1.Text
                )
            ),
            Filter(
                Table1,
                StartsWith(
                    "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",
                    TextSearchBox1.Text
                )&& OVERDUE = Gallery1.Selected.Value
            )
        ),
        TextSearchBox1.Text,
        "FIXEDASSETNUMBER", "ACTIVITYCODE", "BARCODE"),
    "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",
    If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

You can also combine the two "branches" of the If function in a single one to make the expression a little smaller:

SortByColumns(
    Search(
        Filter(
            Table1,
            StartsWith(
                "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",
                TextSearchBox1.Text
            ),
            Gallery.Selected.Value = "All" Or OVERDUE = Gallery1.Selected.Value
        ),
        TextSearchBox1.Text,
        "FIXEDASSETNUMBER", "ACTIVITYCODE", "BARCODE"),
    "FIXEDASSETNUMBER",
    If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

Hope this helps!

Hi @CarlosFigueira ! 

Thank you for your fast response. 

Unfortunatelly, both proposed solutions doesnt work 100%. If I integrate your code, only the tile filtering works. As soon as I enter a text in the search bar, no more data is displayed.

Do you need more information from my side?

        "FIXEDASSETNUMBER","ACTIVITYCODE","BARCODE"
    ),        
    "FIXEDASSETNUMBER", 
    If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending)
