I am fairly new to Powerapps and I have a lot of questions.
I am trying to create a price list based on an Excel spreadsheet of parts. I have different categories, which correspond to all the parts.
"Customer Type", then "Type of Part", then "The Part" and finally "Descriptions"
I am using Shane Young's video as a guideline https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlhWQg03TL0
Basically, click on the first Customer Type, which is filtered based on the selection, which goes to the next gallery for "Type of Part" which is filtered based on my selection, and so on until i reach my last description.
I typed in Filter(Table1, TypeofPart=BrowseGallery1.Selected.CustomerType) but I'm not receiving data when I try it.
I'm confused on why in Shane's video it works so well but it can't work with mine.
Any advice on what to do or how to make it better?
I learn the video you mentioned and try to test it with excel Table too, and firstly it shows nothing and when use "=" in the formula it shows error,says there is the invalid argument.
Then use the button to save the data, there is no wrong but it displays not as perfect as I want,so what the information I give is not the solution just the one hint.Hope this also can be helpful.
I also use excel to create three tables:categories,customeroftype,typeofpart.(I delete the sapace of the columns of it.)
Gallery2.items:Filter(customertype,Gallery1.Selected.categories = TestingData);
Gallery3.itmes:Filter(Typeofpart,TestingData1 = Gallery2.Selected.CustomerType);
If you find the perfect solution please share with me. Many thanks.
Do you want to filter your "Type of Part" gallery based on the selected record within your "Customer Type" gallery?
Based on the formula that you provided, I think you have some misunderstanding with Filter function in PowerApps.
I think there is something wrong with the filter condition within your formula. The left part (TypeofPart) would retrieve values from the TypeofPart column of your Table1 data source, the right part (BrowseGallery1.Selected.CustomerType) would return a CustomerType column value of the selected record in "Customer Type" gallery. The two parts you want to compare are in different columns of your Table1 data source.
Note: In your scenario, the two parts you want to compare should be in same column of your data souce.
On your side, please modify the Items property of the "Type of Part" gallery to following:
Filter(Table1, CustomerType = BrowseGallery1.Selected.CustomerType)
More details about the Filter function in PowerApps, please check the following article:
Thanks for the help! Yes this did work. It now shows the proper Type Of Part
However, it is now showing all the TypeofPart 's that are the same.
I attached a sample excel sheet. I'm trying to build a pricing list for items we sell
Basically, gallery1= CustomerType. Select the Type, which goes to
Gallery2 = TypeofPart, whichever is selected will show
Gallery3 = Part, Whichever is selected will show
Gallery4 = Description, with the price of each part
Gallery 1 formula is GroupBy(Table1,"CustomerType","CustType")
Gallery 2 forlmula is Filter(Table1, CustomerType=BrowseGallery1.Selected.CustomerType) **But it shows some of the same parts instead of grouping them into 1 selection**
Thanks for the help!
So I figured out a solution to get to my second browsing screen. I was missing the Disctint formulation
Distinct (Filter(Table1, CustomerType=BrowseGallery1.Selected.CustomerType), TypeofPart)
Now however, when I try to apply the same concept to a third screen (From CustomerType, to TypeofPart, to Part), I get an error. Distinct (Filter(Table1, TypeofPart=Gallery1.Selected.TypeofPart), Part)
I think what I am missing is a reference to my first screen so Powerapps knows what to look for
