I have created a custom layout form in PowerApps where all the fields are patched in one OnSelect button to a SharePoint list and this works great! Kudos to @thekhristy_ for helping me with that bit!
I have created a gallery on another screen which lists the SharePoint items and have placed a button next to the gallery item which has a navigate function to move to the "Form_Scrn" (this doesnt contain a SharePoint list form control as it's a custom layout.
Usually I use a SharePoint control and can load the items but due to it being custom I am not sure on being able to load the selected list item and have it display?
Any pointers would be ace!
Could you please tell me that how you configure this custom layout?
Show me a screenshot of this custom layout in the Form_Scrn.
If this custom layout is a form, you just need to set the Item property as below:
If this custom layout contains multi standalone controls like TextInput or Combo Box, you need to populate the Default property of the TextInput as below:
This is the custom form layout:
Form_Scrn is used to submitting new forms to SharePoint list.
Would you suggest that I duplicate this screen and then use that as the view form screen where I can set the default items values for each control?
Which control you want to display the selected item from the Gallery? The one at the top?
I am confused that if the top one is a custom form or just standalone controls?
"Usually I use a SharePoint control and can load the items but due to it being custom I am not sure on being able to load the selected list item and have it display?"
What do you mean by the selected list item? Where and which control you select the list item?
Does this make any sense?
I'm wondering that if I duplicate this screen I can then set the "Gallery1.Selected.Field1" values on each of the controls I have in this form?
These have default values set on the current form eg. Choices('Uniform order form'.MensPoloShirt).
Hence why it would probably make more sense to use a different form view/screen?
Okay, that makes sense.
Here is what I got from your reply:
1). The screenshot you provided is a custom layout to submit new records to list
2). A Gallery in CompletedForm_Scrn to display all the items in the list and a navigation button to navigate back to the Form_Scrn where should load the selected item from the CompletedForm_Scrn
If the above is what happened in your scenario, I think the best way is to create individual controls to display the selected item because you just need to display a single record.
