Calendar.jpg

 

I have a calendar and a gallery on a screen in my PowerApp. The client would to be able to filter the gallery by using the date range that's in red and blue. Any suggestions?

Ok, if it's a SharePoint list then your calendar list will have a column defined - Start Time  (which is really EventDate behind the scenes)

So your Filter would be:

  Filter(yourDataSource, 'Start Time' >= _selectionStart && 'Start Time' <= _selectionEnd)

 

If you have issues with the 'Start Time' not showing up, try the EventDate.

 

Hope that helps you.

What problem are you running into?

I assume you are using the GetEventsCalendarViewV2 of the Office365 Outlook connector.  If so, you can specify the start and end dates on that formula.

 

I hope that helps shed some light for you.

Re: Filter Gallery by Calendar date range

@RandyHayes Hi Randy, I'm just not certain as to what formula I need to use for my gallery to filter it by the date range. I'm using a SharePoint calendar as my datasource. I'm not using the O365 Connector.

Re: Filter Gallery by Calendar date range

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you want to filter your Gallery items (use SP Calendar list as data source) based on the Date range you selected from your Calendar?

 

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Set the Items property of the Gallery to following:

Filter(
        'YourCalendarList',
         'Start Time' >= _selectionStart,
         'End Time' <= _selectionEnd
)

Or

Filter(
        'YourCalendarList',
         Value(Text('Start Time', "[$-en-US]yyyymmdd")) >= Value(Text(_selectionStart, "[$-en-US]yyyymmdd")),
         Value(Text('End Time',"[$-en-US]yyyymmdd")) <= Value(Text(_selectionEnd, "[$-en-US]yyyymmdd"))
)

Please take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.

Re: Filter Gallery by Calendar date range

but this way you don't have problems with the delegation?

@AndiRodi 

Oh most definitely you would have problems with delegation with that formula.  That was not an original concern in this post.

If you are experiencing that problem and need some help, I would suggest starting a new post with that issue.

Re: Filter Gallery by Calendar date range

hi @RandyHayes 

 

Thnaks for your anware.

 

I have a big problem with Date Picker.

 

I have a Gallery which i filter by a selctede Date from DatePicker controll. This is the cod that i seet to Items Propriety of gallery controll

items=SortByColumns(Search(Filter(Appointments;DateValue(Text('Start Time')) = DateValue(Text(datepFilterDatePicker.SelectedDate)));TextSearchBox1.Text;"subject");"scheduledstart";If(SortDescending1;Descending;Ascending))//Filter(Appointments,DateValue(Text(Date)) = DateValue(Text(datepFilterDatePicker.SelectedDate)))

The Text() function is stopping the delegation. Then i try to do as below

SortByColumns(Search(Filter(Appointments;'Start Time'>datepFilterDatePicker.SelectedDate&&'Start Time'<DateAdd(datepFilterDatePicker.SelectedDate;1;Days));TextSearchBox1.Text;"subject");"scheduledstart";If(SortDescending1;Descending;Ascending))

but knnow i geth this error.MicrosoftTeams-image.png

Please Let me know as soon as hao i can do a workaround.

 

Thanks

@AndiRodi 

This would be better done through a new post rather than adding on to this post which is already solved.

 

But, since we're here - 

Change your Gallery Items Property to:

SortByColumns(
Search(
Filter(Appointments;
('Start Time' >= datepFilterDatePicker.SelectedDate)
&& ('Start Time' <= DateAdd(datepFilterDatePicker.SelectedDate;1;Days))
);
TextSearchBox1.Text; "subject"
);
"scheduledstart";
If(SortDescending1;Descending;Ascending)
)

If that doesn't immediately help, I would start a new post on this forum with the results you are seeing.
