Re: Items of combobox/dropdown which filter Gallery

Hi @lpr ,

 

In that case, change your formulas to:

 

Distinct(ListName,User.DisplayName)

 

Filter(ListName,  Dropdown1.Selected.Result in User.DisplayName)

@lpr 

Question #1

Is your Users column a Person/Group type?  If so, I believe you can achieve your goal with the help of a ComboBox and the FILTER function.  First, create a new ComboBox with the following properties

 

Items: [@your_SPlist_name].Name
DisplayFields: ["Email"]
SearchFields: ["DisplayName","Email"]
IsSearchable: true

 

Then put this code in the Items property of your Gallery.

 

Filter(your_datasource_name,SPemailColumnName in ComboBox1.SelectedItems)

 

Question #2:

It is unclear what you want here.  What column type is customer projects in SP?

column type is just person type.

When i type the listname.column name as for item, at the combobox property, there is no choice to display email or displayname.

it is not working

Can you find either of the properties DisplayName or Email when typing [@your_sp_list_name]. into the Items property?  If the answer is no, can you please try refreshing your datasource?

Hi @lpr ,

 

Insert a dropdown control and set its Items property to:

Distinct(ListName,User.Email)

And set the Items property of your gallery to:

Filter(ListName,  Dropdown1.Selected.Result in User.Email)
