Have each icon in a Power Apps gallery point to a different screen

Hi: I have a gallery that draws from a Sharepoint list:

SP shot.png

 

The Gallery looks great. What I want to do is have each navigation icon in the gallery point to a different screen. I had assumed it would be as simple as targeting the first icon and under Navigate use Navigate(ThisItem.ScreenName, ScreenTransition.Fade):

However, this does not work as seen in the screenshot: it gives the error "This formula uses scope, which is not presently supported for evaluation".

 

So, any idea anyone on how to achieve this aim? I have looked around and only found an article that does it all within PowerApps, not from the SP list.

 

Regards

Hi @Dr_Lee ,

Unfortunately, what are you trying to do is not possible ...The Navigate () function expects the name of the screen (hardcoded if you want), not a string value as the name of the screen.

So, if think that you need to reconsider your approach.

 

Hope it helps !  

Thanks - the post by @eka24 does work though - it turns out, you can do this in collections but, for some reason, not using a Sharepoint lost connector

Thank you so much @eka24 , it worked great. It is identical to my attempted solution, except using a Collection as the data source instead of a Sharepoint list. I guess there's just something in the connector properties that disables this. Thanks again!
