Media Image Reference - association with This-Item.'Name'

Dear Power-Apps Dream Team

I am asking for the help of an easy issue that I spotted during associations of two elements using the different Data Source.

Could You please sort a problem regarding associating the images (Stored in Power-App/Options-Collection) with the This-Item.-Asset-No selected in Browse-Gallery. (Please see the attached pictures).

Please see attached pictures of the Steps of the functions I put into App and the results :

1. Connection between two screens by selected Asset No. (Please see the attached picture)

2. To see Option-Collection:

I put a function :

App On-Start ( f x 😞
{Asset-No:"1703", Image: '1703'},
{Asset-No:"1670", Image: '1703'},
{Asset-No:"692", Image: '1703'},
{Asset-No:"693", Image: '725 - Checkbox 07.20'}

(Please see the attached picture)

2. Proof that the Random Browse-Gallery with Options-Collection is working on random Screen
(Please see the attached picture)

My main problem is how to associate the Browse-Gallery-Main taking Data from SQL Server with unique picture (stored directly in Power-App ) for each item in Browse-Gallery-Main.

I am kindly asking for advice to avoid complications, I need to connect each item in Browse-Gallery with Unique picture.

Thank You in Advance for kind assistance in this matter.





Dear Sir

You are My Hero and Legend, Sir. I knew it that is very simple but without Your, Sir help it would very hard to find a solution using formula containing (...) AssetNo = Trim (...). That is really amazing. I do not know how to Thank You, Sir! That is brilliant. Everything is working as it should.


Thank You in Your kind assistance in this matter.


Hope that one day I could help someone so I can compensate.


Best Regards




I am glad it worked. 

Seeing the screen show of your data was the are using a nchar(10) on AssetNo.  That means that the field AssetNo will be padded with spaces for a length of 10. 

Comparing "123456" to "123456    " does not compare.

However "123456" does compare to Trim("123456    ")

So, that was what you needed.


Enjoy your PowerApp'ing.  You only need to repay by clicking on the Accept Solution button so that others will see that this is a solution and they can benefit from it as well.
