PowerApp as detail view

Hi together,

 

I actually try to build a Power App to show details from a Sharepoint List to the clients. 

Therefore I have built up a List with all neccessary information to e.g. a supplier. Now I`d like to show up all these detailed information bundled in a form as shown on the right side of the picture.

As you can see that doesn`t work properly. The user has to scroll down in the form although there is enough space to the bottom of the page. 

Does anybody know what I`m doing wrong here?

In Settings > Display. Do you have a locked aspect ratio or did you set this up as a phone app?

I don`t know if I have set it up as a phone app, but at least I do not want it. I just want to use it on PC.

That is setup for tablet which is what you want. Try "changing it to scale" to fit or "16:9". See if that helps your display issues.

Unfortunately I do not have the opportunity to change anything. I just can change the height and width of the display. But that doesn`t work 😞

Maybe I should describe my target. I have a list of suppliers (in Excel). I want this list to be somewhere (not in Excel) with the possibility to search the list for various topics (country, portfolio, etc.) and then show a selection of the possible suppliers. By clickling one of them, there should be opened a seperate window with the detailes information.

Is this possible with Power Apps?

I understand better now.

 

Yes you could use a gallery to show the list of suppliers. Once they click a gallery item, you could take them to a different page with the detailed information. Or you could show it on the same page depending on how much room you have to work with. Do you need help with setting that up? 

Oh yes please, that`d be great!!!

This is what I have as a basis:

In PowerApps go to Insert > Gallery. Select your data source. Change the "On Select" value to Navigate('page'). 

 

On the ('page') you created, create a form by going to insert > Edit Form. Select the fields you want it to display. In the Form properties, change the "Item" to "GalleryName.Selected".

 

You can modify the above to be on the same page if you do not want separate pages.
