Gallery(based on sql view) to EditForm(based on table)

hi,

I'm building a powerapps application with sql server as the database and I have a question about using an sql view in the gallery screen that then navigates to an editform that is based on a table.

 

The problem with this is that the gallery view has a different structure to the table used in the editform thus when pass selected record between the two you have a problem. (note the sql view is based on the same table used in the editform but with the foriegn key descriptive names from the related tables.eg Invoice sql view including customer name from customer table).

 

Is there a way to get around this problem as using views in gallery screen seems like a good idea, atleast at first.

 

thanks

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Please consider switch the item property of the form control to the lookup function.

 

For example:

Lookup(ActualTable, PrimaryID=Gallery.Selected.ID)

See if that would work.

Thanks for the reply. Was a simple solution.

 

Have just been searching for an answer to a related issue.

Are we able to change the value in the Gallery.Selected property?

I want to be able to control the selected record in the gallery.

 

thanks.

 

 

Hi @Anonymous,

 

That depends on what you would like to achieve.

 

Gallery.Selected property is a container to store the record selected from the Gallery, so if you would like to change record, simply switch the record within the Gallery, more information about Gallery, see:

Customize a gallery in PowerApps

Gallery control in PowerApps

If you would like to change the matching Id of the Lookup function, just make sure the Id is within the search table should be OK to go.
