Display Details from a Gallery Item on Labels.

Hi, 

 

I´m working on an app to display data from a SharePoint List.  I want to display details from items in a gallery, but not in a Display Form. I'm using labels and the gallery.Selected.field Text Property to display the details, but I'm having trouble with data from choice fields in sharepoint.  Is there a way to display choice, lookup and calculated sharepoint fields on labels in powerapps?  

 

Thanx!

Hi @AFernandez 

 

For choice fields, lookup fields -  use gallery.selected.column.Value - to get the text

 

for person - use gallery.selected.column.Email or  gallery.selected.column.DisplayName

Hi @AFernandez,

Since the Label control is used to display text, while choice, lookup and calculated field are complex data type.

So you need some special formulas to make them diaplay in label control.

1)single choice, single lookup

Gallery1.Selected.fieldname.Value

2)multiple choice, multiple lookup

Concat(Gallery1.Selected.fieldname,Value&",")

3)calculated sharepoint field

I've try these settings all.

Just using this formula is OK:

Gallery1.Selected.fieldname

 

Here's a doc about how to use complex data type of sharepoint list in PowerApps for your reference:
