Search Item - Help in Code or Function

Hi everyone, 

 

I'm trying to write a function whose goal is to find a number listed in the field below.

I've already tried putting the code/function as in the image, but it is not allowed or doesn't execute. 

 

SortByColumns(Search(CustomGallerySample, TextSearchBox4.Text, "SampleText"), "SampleText", If(SortDescending1, SortOrder.Descending, SortOrder.Ascending))

 

Tks for support.

Looks like a circular reference to me....  You're setting the Default for a control (TextSearchBox4) to a value that is searching the value for that control...  

 

However over the red circle or run the "App Checker" (stethescope icon) to verify the error...

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Do you want to sort by one search box's text?

You can change your formula expression as this:

Sort(Search(CustomGallerySample, TextSearchBox4.Text, "SampleText"), "SampleText", If(SortDescending1, SortOrder.Descending, SortOrder.Ascending))

 

For example:

search.PNG

 

sortSearch.gif

 

Hope this could be helpful.

 

Best Regards.

Not sure if you saw the reply I gave you to this question in your other post, but here it is repeated for your convenience. 

-----------------------------

 

You need not worry about the Textbox to do anything.  In PowerApps, things "respond" to other controls, controls don't usually alter other things.

So, looking at your original default formula for your Gallery Items Property is the place to start.

You can see that it had two functions in it - the SortByColumns and the Search function.  You will need to apply those to your Gallery Items property as well.

Consider altering this formula for your needs:

SortByColumns(
    Search(yourDataSource, 
                TextSearchBox4.Text,
                "yourColumnYouWantToSearchInQuotes"),
    "yourColumnYouWantToSortByInQuotes",
    If(SortDescending1,
       SortOrder.Descending,
       SortOrder.Ascending)
)

This will give you similar functionality for searching and sorting that you were asking for, but you need to apply your datasource and your columns.
