Greetings,

 

To avoid delegation issues, I have decided to use ClearCollect to bring in a filtered set of Data from a Sharepoint List:

 

//Set variable for current date
Set(
	CurrentDate,
	Date(
		Year(Today()),
		Month(Today()),
		Day(Today())
	)
);

//Set variable for start of previous work week
Set(
	PeriodStartDate,
	DateAdd(Now()-6,-(Weekday(Now(),StartOfWeek.Sunday)),Days)
);

//Set variable for send of current work week
Set(
	PeriodEndDate,
	DateAdd(Now(),-(Weekday(Now(),StartOfWeek.Sunday)),Days)+7
);

//Pull in collection

ClearCollect(colEntries,
    ShowColumns(
            SortByColumns(
                Filter('Entries','Entry Date and Time' >= PeriodStartDate,'Entry Date and Time'<= PeriodEndDate),
                "Entry_x0020_Date_x0020_and_x0020",Descending
            ),
            "Employee_x0020_Name","Entry_x0020_Date_x0020_and_x0020","In_x0020_or_x0020_Out","Location","Comments","Branch","OutType","ReturnDate","Building","ID"
    )
);

 

I have created a screen with a gallery which has a data source of colEntries.  My EditForm has a datasource of 'Entries'.  When the Form is submitted, it creates the new record in the Sharepoint List and then the ClearCollect runs again to update the collection.  The problem is my DetailForm.  How can I get the nextArrow in my Gallery for each record to open the Detail Form for the record in the Sharepoint List?  I have the ID field in the Sharepoint List, as well in the collection. 

 

Currently, the NextArrow in the gallery is set to Select(Parent).  I was thinking about doing something like Select(LookUp('Entries',ID=ThisItem.ID)), but it doesnt work.  Basically, I want it to look at the ID listed in the collection, then match it with the record in the Sharepoint List, and select that record for the DetailScreen.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Remove(Entries, Lookup(Entries, ID=ThisItem.ID) but you will have to redo the collection to show the change in your gallery. You do realize that ClearCollect() is not delegatable so it is only collecting the first 2k items in your list. To check do a CountRows(colEntries)to see how many items you have.

@john3j 

The key is the Item property of the Detail form.  Set it to Lookup(Entries, ID = yourgalleryname.Selected.ID).  There is no need for a variable here.

@Drrickryp - Thank you for such a quick response!  That seemed to do the trick, but I also have a delete icon that is throwing fits.  Given your advice about the Item Property on the Detail Form, what would I need to set the OnSelect property to on the IconDelete1?

@john3j 

I wouldn't use a collection for the gallery.  You could populate the gallery with the Items property 

 

With({
       mydata: Filter(
                     Entries,'Entry Date and Time' >= PeriodStartDate,
                              'Entry Date and Time'<= PeriodEndDate
               )
       },
  SortByColumns(
                mydata, "Entry_x0020_Date_x0020_and_x0020",Descending
   )
)

 

or getting rid of the collection and the variables

 

With({
       PSD:DateAdd(Now()-6,-(Weekday(Now(),StartOfWeek.Sunday)),Days),
       PED:DateAdd(Now(),-(Weekday(Now(),StartOfWeek.Sunday)),Days)+7,      ,
       mydata: Filter(
                     Entries,'Entry Date and Time' >= PSD,
                             'Entry Date and Time' <= PED
               )
     },
      SortByColumns(
                     mydata, "Entry_x0020_Date_x0020_and_x0020",Descending
      )
)

 

You can populate the labels in the gallery by simply putting in ThisItem.columnname .  For the delete record icon, simply Remove(Entries, ThisItem)

@Drrickryp - The reason I was using collections was because I expect 1800-ish records per day and I have to be able to quickly recall the past two weeks worth of data without running into delegation issues.  How would I get the delete button to work where it finds the ID of the record in the collection, then matches it with the corresponding record in the Sharepoint list with the same ID?  I really appreciate your help on this!

Perfect!  Thank you so much!

@Drrickryp  - I actually have collections for multiple branches, then I do a ClearCollect to pull them all into a larger collection.  This was my attempt at working thru delegation issues and it seems to work...for now 🙂
