Hi Friends,

 

How to use BrowseGallery in Desktop/Tablet Mode?? as this template is available for only Mobile mode.

 

While developing Desktop mode PowerApps, I am looking BowsGallery for DisplayScreen where I can make Searching capability just like Mobile Mode. But I am only seeing 4 types of templates except BrowseGallery.

Hi Sidhartha75,

 

Do you want to create an app in Tablet layout?
When creating an app in Tablet layout, there are four Layout can be selected, but the sample layouts are not available to Search/Filter items. While you want to Search/Filter items just like a Phone layout.
If I misunderstand you, please feel free correct me.

 

you could make Search capability available by configuring the Table layout.

 

Hope what I have done could be a reference for you:
1. Create an app from Blank with Table layout. Then select a layout. I used the second one “Browse items, thumbnail image, header and description”.
2. Then add a data source to SharePoint list, say ListB.
3. Add a Text input control above the Gallery control.
4. Set the Item property of the Gallery as Search(ListB,TextInput1.Text,"Title"). Then the search items would be shown on the app.

Hope I understand you correctly. You could configure the sample layout as whatever you want. Please try it on your side and let me know if it works for you.

Under the Insert tab, you should see Gallery, which will give you the templates for the BrowseGallery.

Hi @Sidhartha75

 

There is no different between Mobile or Tablet/DeskTopMode, except the Layout.

All stay unchanged.

 

You can insert whatever Gallery and modify as you wish.

Either purely image, text or image with caption or text. You can always modify later by clicking on the "Pen mode" on the gallery's Top Left Corner and insert whatever you want, such as:

- TextBox

- TextInput

- Imges

- Date, Slider, Checkbox,....

 

Hope this helps and Have a nice day.

Hi @hpkeong

 

For mobile mode I can see 1o different types of Gallery defined at right side layout section. But I am not seeing all layouts form Desktop mode gallery. I am seeing only 4 types including plain one.

 

for mobile layout, I am seeing default Search area in the Gallery. But we need to customize in desktop layout. If I choose to customize desktop gallery, where I will get search text box??

 

How can I get Gallery in Desktop mode with layout like Mobile having Searching Capabilities??

Hi

 

I am not really sure what do you mean then,

Landscape layout is closed to Tablet/Desktop Layout and Search Mode is maintained as Mobile when you change layout.

I did not screenshot everything but just share the idea. Since you are not sure, I screenshot again another screen with Search Mode.

If still not what you want, then i might have providing a wrong guidance and sorry for not able to help.

Do awiting PG Staff to assist.

 

TQ

Search Mode is definitely there...Search Mode is definitely there...
