Navigate to a filled form from a gallery item and then edit and save the changes

I have two screens: Tracker and Edit

 

Tracker screen has a Gallery which links to a list "List A".

The Gallery shows few values from "List A", like Name and Status but List has other fields as well like Country, Exam etc.

The list record looks like this:

NameStatusCountryExamAdmission
JohnIn ProgressUSAYesNo

 

And Gallery looks like this:

John

In progress

 

Doe 

Done

 

Jack

NA

 

 

I now want to click on John and then click on a Edit button on Tracker screen.

The button navigates me to "Edit screen" but the Edit form should show me the values for the selected Gallery items i.e. value relevant for John.

 

I then want to edit that form and save the changes. Say if I change the status to "Completed" and then come back to "Tracker", then the Gallery should now show me as:

John

Completed

 

Doe 

Done

 

Jack

NA

 

Appreciate your suggestion.

 

Regards,

Aditya

Hi @Aditya1728 ,

Your Edit form on the other screen needs the DataSource of the list name and the Item of YourGalleryName.Selected (replace with your name).

Use SubmitForm(YourFormName) to save the record.

Am guessing that both the editform and the Gallery are connected to same list A. 

If so;

In the Onselect of the icon inside the Gallery put;

Set(Myselect, ThisItem)

 

Then in the item property of the Editform put;

Myselect

@eka24  Thank you for your quick response.
I do not want to use icon inside Gallery but rather have a button to navigate to edit form page.
But I tried with your proposed solution but putting Myselect in form Item propery, it gives an error: "Invalid formula. Expected a value compatible with "'Data Source'"

 

Am I missing something?

@WarrenBelz  Thank you for your response but when I try this, it shows "No items to display" for edit form.

To solve that Item property needs to be set to Default('Data Source') but then the original problem exists.

Is the form and the Gallery on Different forms?

Can you give a screen shot of the button inside the gallery?

It is the same list.
Gallery is in a different screen and Form is in another.

 

The button is not inside the gallery.

For the proper transfer of the selected items onto the form, Insert the button inside the Gallery to ensure whatever is selected is held in the variable as I stated in my first post.

Yes but in that the placement of the button will change, isn't it?

Your last reply is not clear to me. if you can explain further,

Again just give it a trial if that would not work for you.
