Highlight a row within gallery

Hello Everyone 🙂

 

I would like to highlight a row in my gallery if it is selected,

 

In particular if the info icon of that row is selected, is this possible?

I would also need a way of clearing the row selection when the person has finished navigating/selecting.

 

Many Thanks

Chris

Ok, so we can do something like that yes, we can combine both those values if those will equate to a unique filter 🙂

 

OnSelect:

Set(DisplayPopup, true);
Set(
   CurrentlySelectedItem,
   If(
      CurrentlySelectedItem.EmployeeID = ThisItem.EmployeeID
      &&
      CurrentlySelectedItem.Month = ThisItem.Month
      , 
      Blank(), 
      ThisItem
   )
)

 

Then your Fill becomes:

If(
   ThisItem.EmployeeID = CurrentlySelectedItem.EmployeeID
   &&
   ThisItem.Month = CurrentlySelectedItem.Month
   ,
   // This is a transparent red
   RGBA(255,0,0, 15%),
   // If this is not the selected item, just use a transparent background
   Transparent
)

No worries, happy to help get you to the home stretch - If you used the code I provided above, you should be able to select the same item and it will clear, and if you want it to be a button then you only need your 'clear selection' button to do this:

Set(
   CurrentlySelectedItem,
   Blank(),
)

 

Cheers,

Sancho

Ok so that looks like a nested gallery, which might make things a bit more complicated.. let's try the simple approach first

 

What I would do is have your info icon set a variable relating to ThisItem, and because you want it to toggle on or off being selected, we will need to include that in the formula:

Set(
   CurrentlySelectedItem,
   If(
      CurrentlySelectedItem.ID = ThisItem.ID, 
      Blank(), 
      ThisItem
   )
)

 

Then set the Fill property of your row to:

If(
   ThisItem.ID = CurrentlySelectedItem.ID,
   // This is a transparent red
   RGBA(255,0,0, 15%),
   // If this is not the selected item, just use a transparent background
   Transparent
)

 

Could you give this a try and then let me know how it goes?

 

Cheers,

Sancho

@Appy1

Use the template fill property of the gallery to highlight the record: 

If(ThisItem.IsSelected, Red, Transparent).

To clear selection:

Add a + icon

1. Set the default property of Gallery1 to {}.

2. And then on the OnSelect property of the + icon: Reset (Gallery1) 

Hello, @Drrickryp , 

 

Thanks for the suggestion.

 

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work, it hasn't highlighted anything.

 

Kind Regards

Chris

Hello @iAm_ManCat ,

 

Thanks for this, i will give it a go.

 

Im assuming i add this to the OnSelect property of the Icon?

 

I currently have this there for my popup, are you able to advise on how would i incorporate this?

 

Set(
DisplayPopup,
true
)

 

If it is easier an row could be highlighted by any text input within that row being clicked i would also go for that option.

 

Really appreciate your help.

 

Thanks

Chris

Yeah of course, happy to explain - and yes you are correct, on the OnSelect
You should be able to have it do multiple items by adding ; as the separator

Set(DisplayPopup, true);
Set(
   CurrentlySelectedItem,
   If(
      CurrentlySelectedItem.ID = ThisItem.ID, 
      Blank(), 
      ThisItem
   )
)

I have entered the formulas but have encountered an error on the OnSelect of the Icon.

 

This is what it says:

You would be using some kind of datasource or collection to drive this gallery, which is what we have set to ThisItem - well what makes each row unique - in the code I gave I assumed you had an ID for us to compare the values, but we can use other fields depending on what you have available.

The error says that the items both resulted in Error, meaning they don't have an ID field which is what I used to compare them
