Search Gallery by first letter in Title

I have a standard gallery with a number of items. Each item has a title, in this case the Project Title. If I take the default search function from the default app and try to search for an item, in seems to filter based of both words.

For example,  if i have the items with the titles:

"Project One"

"Project Two"

"Project Three"

then I type into the search box the letter 'o', the first gallery item will appear because the second word in it starts with the letter 'o'. 

Instead, I want to search items based of the very first letter, so if i typed in 'o', no records will appear as they all start with 'P'.

 

Thanks.

Hey!

 

Please refer to the screenshot below.

The expression used is: 

 

Filter(["Project One","Project Two","Troject 3"],StartsWith(Value,TextInput1.Text))


["Project One","Project Two","Troject 3"]
It is just a sample list, please input your data source directly.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @ajennings1 

 

As  @yashag2255 's suggestion, you can use Startswith function to achieve that.

Gallery4.Items=Filter(test,StartsWith(Title,TextInput1.Text))  (Gallery4 and Textinput1 is the control name as next screen on my side)

@v-yuxima-msft@yashag2255 ,

 

Thank you both for your replies! All working now. Just got confused with Search and Filter. It's odd how the template PowerApp doesn't implement this method.

 

Thanks again.
