JSON function with a selected gallery item

I'm trying to send a record to Flow with the JSON function based on gallery item selected.

 

JSON(Gallery.Selected)

but it produces an error in the formula.

 

Any ideas on how to get this working with a selected gallery card?

@CarlosFigueira, thanks for this tip. I had to use two of the JSONFormat flags, but I got it working and managed to pass the currently-selected record to a Flow  with

 

PowerAppsDoMyGroovyThing.Run(JSON(BrowseGallery1.Selected, JSONFormat.IgnoreUnsupportedTypes & JSONFormat.IgnoreBinaryData))

The Selected property in the gallery has not only the record that is bound to the gallery, but also the controls that are shown in the selected row - and serializing controls are not supported by the JSON function.

You can solve that by using the JSONFormat.IgnoreUnsupportedTypes option to the function:

JSON(Gallery.Selected, JSONFormat.IgnoreUnsupportedTypes)

If this still doesn't work, please hover the mouse on the JSON function, and it should give you more information about the error. If you post the error here, we should be able to help you solve that as well.

Hope this helps!
