Search Engine with PowerApps?

Hi everybody,

 

I am a beginner level with PowerApps, so trying to learn from other works currently. But I haven't seen any "Search Engine" app from anybody.

 

Basically what I am working on is that I would like to search for a keyword and click "Search" button and I want the app to index those in a new page. To give an example, Google or Bing 🙂 (Note: it will index Site Pages, but nothing else.)

 

All I see about search is putting a gallery mode and basically all it does is filtering; not even "Contains" but only "StartsWith" code.

 

I would appreciate, if there is anybody here to help me out with this issue.

Hi @barbarosdemir ,

Do you want to have the feather like google?

Maybe you could consider using this connector: Bing Search.

By using this connector, you could get a list of news articles for a given query.

Firstly , connect with this connector.

Then, insert a text input and a gallery.

set the gallery's Items:

BingSearch.GetNews(Textinput1.Text)

Then the gallery will return news based on the text you fill in the textinput.

Here's a doc about this connector for your reference:

Hi,

 

Search by default works as a "Contains" and when you put in the fields to search it will get all the records that contain the information in the text field you are using as the search criteria.

 

If you want you can send me a note at Jay@research-nest.com and I will try to help you via teams,

Hi @barbarosdemir ,

Do you want to filter based on keywords?

The filtering in powerapps is based on the formula that you use in property.

Usually, we use these functions to filter: Filter, Search, LookUp

Here's a doc about these three functions for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-filter-lookup

The operator which works like keyword is "in".

Using "in" will filter records which contain that keyword.

 

For example:
I want to filter records that contain the keyword that I enter in the textinput, then I could use formula like this:

Filter(table,textinput1.Text in fieldname)

 

Here's a doc about operators for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/operators

Thanks Phoebe. But I am still looking for something like a search engine.
