Get image from Sharepoint list or library, and show the picture base on a dropdown selection

Hi All,


My application is an asset usage application. I have created a sharepoint list containing the assets, and in the power app a dropdown having the "Items"= Itemlist.Title. (dropdown in the image)


What i would like to achieve is to have above the dropdown 1 picture element, which based on what i select in the dropdown, shows that item image. (golden square in the image)

I don't know which is the good approach for this:


1) store the images as attachment in the "itemslist"

2) store the images in a sharepoint Library, naming each picture as the Items in the Itemlist.


Can i achieve this with simply powerapp or should i use also Power automate?


Thank you in advance for the help!!!!


@WarrenBelz?? 🙂


@Anonymous ,

This is an old closed post, but to answer your question, Name is the name of the file you put in the Library. The reference you need is probably

   Part = DataCardValue27.Selected.Value

This is all in the blog I referenced.

It worked when I changed .Value to .Result.

You're the PowerApps hero Warren! Many thanks.

@Anonymous ,

I took the .Value off your post - you obviously have a Distinct filter on the drop-down.

Yes I do

I have the same issue with an audio recordings library. Should I replace Thumbnails into an audio recording reference? if yes, what is it?

@Anonymous ,

Sorry, I have never used audio files with Power Apps, although I suspect you cannot resolve an image of them (not all file types will do this.

Can we deal with the audio as they're items in a library. I believe you understand powerapps logic more than I do, the following screenshots may help, I used power automate to save the audios in sharepoint.

@Anonymous ,

I have nothing to test this with (and I have never used Audio files), but if you put the audio file in the gallery and pointed the Media property at the item in the gallery, it should work.

I have read several posts of yours and this last issue took me a while to get it resolved. Thank you so much for your support, after you travel to Budapest you can also travel to Guadalajara, Mexico and I'll invite you to get a tequila shot. 🙂

Thanks @huitradoemm ,

Always a pleasure knowing I am helping.
