Gallery or form?!

Hi!

I'm having a hard time tryng to do (what I think it is) a simple task in PowerApps. My data is an Excel table with 3 columns: category, subcategory and value.

I want to filter the categories and subcategories in order to update their values. The final result should look something like the print below:

My biggest problem is that I can't tell if I should do it using a gallery with a patch function to update the values, or if the best way to do it is using a edit form.

  • When I tried to do it using a gallery, all the subcategories were displayed and kinda polluted the design. I wasn't able to just put a dropdown like I wanted to.
  • Also, when I tried to do it using an edit form, even when I set the card's display mode to "view", nothing showed up in the screen when I ran the app. Since I don't want to add data to my database, setting the display mode to "new" doesn't apply in my case.

What am I doing wrong? Any help or hint would be appreciated. Have a great day.

I suggest you use the form.

Set the Default Mode to Edit. 

 

Insert a Gallery and put the Datasource on the items property of the Gallery.

 

Then,

On the Item property of the Form put: Gallery1. Selected
