Gallery showing empty record for empty results.

My Gallerys are showing an empty record when there are no results to display.  I don't remember this happening. I think it's ugly and can be confusing to the userUntitled.png

Re: Gallery showing empty record for empty results.

@sjcitpro 

You might want to consider putting a formula on the Visible property of the Gallery such as this:

   (CountRows(Galleryx.AllItems)>0)

 

We get around that "ugly" situation by doing that, we also have a Label in that same Gallery location that says "No results" (or other text like that) and have the Visible property of that set to:

  !Galleryx.Visible

 

In this example, if there are no results in the Gallery - it is hidden.  When the Gallery is hidden, the Label is visible.

 

I hope that helps some.

Thanks, I figured I would get around to that solution, it just seems that this started happening.

Yes, I aggree it did just start happening.  It was a while back (as in weeks ago), but yes, it did change.  It actually forced me to consider the better user interface concept of displaying a label when it's empty...something I should have done from the start in a couple of app, but was a little lazy.
