List box focus

Hello, I have a list box with 30 items. The listbox only shows 5. The list box default on new form to pull from another list.

 

Here's the issue: if the defaulted item in below the 5 you can't tell what's selected, so is there a way to put the selected item as top in list?

 

TYIA, you're always a great help!

Hi @dthope69,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to put the selected item as Top when you select an item within the List box?

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think there is direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

As an alternative solution, I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:10.JPG

Set the OnVisible property of the Edit screen which contains the Edit form to following:

ClearCollect(
ListBoxItems,
Filter('20181019_case9_Courses', ID = 15),
Filter('20181019_case9_Courses', ID <> 15)
)

On your side, you should type:

ClearCollect(
ListBoxItems,
Filter('YourAnotherSPList', ReferencedColumn = Gallery.Selected.RelatedColumn),
Filter('YourAnotherSPlist', ReferencedColumn <> Gallery.Selected.RelatedColumn)
)

Note: The ReferencedColumn represents the column name in your 'YourAnotherSPList', which you displayed within the ListBox control. The RelatedColumn represents the column name within the data source which your current Edit form connects to. The RelatedColumn used to store the selected value within the List Box. The Gallery  (Gallery1) connects to same data source within your Edit form.

Set the Items property of the List Box control to following:

If(
    EditForm1.Mode=FormMode.New,
    '20181019_case9_Courses'.ID,
    ListBoxItems.ID
)

On your side, you should type:

If(
    EditForm1.Mode = FormMode.New,
    'YourAnotherSPList'.ReferencedColumn,
    ListBoxItems.ReferencedColumn
)

Thanks for the reply, I haven't had a chance to test this yet. Hopefully this weekend...

Hello,

 

Quality Observations (SP List) is the Items in ListBox .

UserPreferences is the SP list I am retrieving data from in "Default" property of Listbox.

Project is the field in both lists. Looks up UserPreferences.Project from current user's email, which is "title" in UserPreferences list.

 

So in example attached it should have Asia Pacific in top line of List box, or at least scroll to it. As it is now if defaults to something past the 1st 10 rows or so you don't know it until you scroll down.

 

For reference, also attached-

 

Edit screen (scrHome) OnVisible-

ClearCollect(
ListBoxItems,
Filter('Quality Observations', Project = LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Project.Value),
Filter('Quality Observations', Project <> LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Project.Value)
)

 

Items of List box (lstProjects)-

 If(

    frmQO.Mode = FormMode.New,

    'Quality Observations'.Project,

    ListBoxItems.Project

)

 

 

 

 

Hi @dthope69 ,

Is the Project column a LookUp column or Choice type column in your SP list?

Based on the formula that you mentioned, I think there is something wrong with it. Please consider take a try to modify your formula as below:

Edit screen (scrHome) OnVisible:

ClearCollect(
             ListBoxItems,
             Filter('Quality Observations', Project.Value = LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Project.Value), /* <-- Please type Project.Value instead of Peoject */
             Filter('Quality Observations', Project.Value <> LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Project.Value)
)

Items of List box (lstProjects):

 If(
    frmQO.Mode = FormMode.New,
    'Quality Observations'.Project,
    ListBoxItems.Project
)

Hello,

 

It is a lookup in another SP list so I believe the collection will need the ID and Value...

 

I tried this but I don't quite understand these Lookups and filters with SP lists yet...

 

ClearCollect(
             ListBoxItems,
             Filter('Quality Observations', Project.Value = ForAll(Project:{ 
'@odata.type' : "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference", 
Id: LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Id.Value, 
Value: LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Project.Value
})
,
Filter('Quality Observations', Project.Value <> ForAll(Project:{ 
'@odata.type' : "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference", 
Id: LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Id.Value, 
Value: LookUp(UserPreferences,Title=User().Email).Project.Value
}))
)

 

Thanks,

Paul
