DatePicker used in optional not as obligatory

Hello,

 

In my last topic (https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Data-table-filter-modification/m-p/694197#M2...) I received a help in making my DatePicker works in my gallery.

This is the function:

 

Sort(Filter(Search(IdeaBox_1;SearchBox.Text;"Nazwa";"Opis"); 
Text(Utworzony;ShortDate) = Text(DatePicker1.SelectedDate;ShortDate)); 
Utworzony; If(SortDescending2;Descending;Ascending))

 

 

I use in my gallery SearchBox that i searching true filds Name/Description (Nazwa/Opis), and a button that lists all gallery records desc/asc of date.

 

I also added DatePicker1 that I wanted to use an additional source of possible filters.

This filter is however very problematic, because it is not optional - it filter the data in default mode.

 

So for example my gallery has 30 records - after implementing in Items of gallery updated function with listed DataPicker it only shows today records. When I delete value Today() it shows no records at all.

At this moment I have no means to show all RECORDS.

 

What I intented was to create a new filter that would help my users filter some data, but that would be optional not obligatory.

Is it possible to change this filter?

 

I thought that maybe I could use two DataPickers one would be start date of filter which would be set on 01.01.1900 and another would be Today() on default.

So it will list all records, but also allow users to search when they need.

 

Or maybe is there other way to achieve it? 

I found this function but I have troubles in implementing it in my formula:

I created DatePicker2

Filter(DataSourceName, EventDate > DatePicker1.SelectedDate && EventDate < DatePicker2.SelectedDate)

Thank you for your help.

Use this:

Sort(Filter(Search(IdeaBox_1;SearchBox.Text;"Nazwa";"Opis"); Utworzony >= DatePicker1.SelectedDate &&
Utworzony <= DatePicker2.SelectedDate); Utworzony; If(SortDescending2;Descending;Ascending))

Using Datapicker1 and 2, Use the formula;

Sort(Filter(Search(IdeaBox_1;SearchBox.Text;"Nazwa";"Opis"); Text(Utworzony;ShortDate) >= Text(DatePicker1.SelectedDate;ShortDate)&&Text(Utworzony;ShortDate) <= Text(DatePicker2.SelectedDate;ShortDate)
); Utworzony; If(SortDescending2;Descending;Ascending)

Yes because of the comparison, there should a value:

Sort(Filter(Search(IdeaBox_1;SearchBox.Text;"Nazwa";"Opis"); Value(Text(Utworzony;ShortDate)) >= Value(Text(DatePicker1.SelectedDate;ShortDate))&&Value(Text(Utworzony;ShortDate)) <= Value(Text(DatePicker2.SelectedDate;ShortDate))
); Utworzony; If(SortDescending2;Descending;Ascending)

This is weird. I used this function:

 

Sort(Filter(Search(IdeaBox_1;SearchBox.Text;"Nazwa";"Opis"); Value(Text(Utworzony;ShortDate)) >= Value(Text(DatePicker1.SelectedDate;ShortDate))&&Value(Text(Utworzony;ShortDate)) <= Value(Text(DatePicker2.SelectedDate;ShortDate))
); Utworzony; If(SortDescending2;Descending;Ascending))

 

It now shows all results, all filters but date works well.

 

No matter what value I provide in DataPickers the filter does not change.
It always shows all records (f.e if I make both data pickers on 20.09.2020 it should show one proposition) but it shows all):

Show a screenshot of your Column from your Datasource. Do you get errors in the formula?

There are no errors at all.

Just 3 warning (delegation) from a different source.

 

I use date of creation in gallery:

This is from Sharepoint list:

Elitezone_1-1600678265634.png

Data type: Date and hours

Date format: Standard/Friendly (are the last settings).

 

This is a standard field (same as modified by).

@eka24 

Do you perhaps have any idea what to do 😞

I would be very grateful as those filters are very important and I cannot fix them myself.
