Gallery filter selections reset when navigating to form view/switching screens

Hi,

 

I have a few dropdown filters on a Gallery. 

 

Upon selecting some dropdown options in the Gallery, then navigating to the Form screen, and then navigating back to the Gallery screen, the dropdown filter selections are reset to default values.

 

Is there any way to pass the filter selections onto a global variable or any other means, so that when I navigate back to the Gallery from the Form screen, the dropdown selections do not change?

 

Best regards,

AmiK

You could put some code like this in the OnChange property of the dropdown to store the selection in a variable.

Set(varFilterColumn1, Dropdown_Column1.Selected.Value)

 

Then put the variable in the Default property of the dropdown.  Now the value will be retained now matter if the selection is lost.

varFilterColumn1

Thank you for the quick response @mdevaney . Unfortunately, when navigating back to the Gallery from the Form screen, the dropdown still resets back to the first item in the drop down menu rather than the selected item.

 

To check if the function is working correctly, I added a Label into the Form screen and referenced it back to the dropdown value in the Gallery. The Label control correctly returned the selected filter value. The value is just not appearing correctly when navigating back to the Gallery.

 

Any ideas?

I found a post with the same issue and it turns out the solution was not working because I was already using a ClearCollect and Collect function on the dropdown control. The steps provided in the below thread resolved that issue.

Hello,

 

In my case it worked. I set the variable On Change property and I used the variable as a Filter in the Gallery items
