Search box to recognize text of a lable

Hello everyone, I'm building an app for my team; I've get the trouble when i was trying to create a search box that works like the search box auto-generated by powerapps when an excel table is used as data source - example below:

The problem is that I cannot use a gallery or an automated app connected to an excel table, because I need to be more free about the connection throught the various field and screens -i have to customize every single field whit hyperlinks and something else . 
So I've thought to implement a search box that recognise the text of lables:

As the exemple above, i need a search box that works as a searchbox auto-generated by powerapp, but that works on the text of the lables instade of an excel table. Is it possible? Do you have any other idea?

Thanks!!

Hi @superblueee 

Every PowerApp requires a connection for storing the data.  You can create a Collection or a table within PowerApps but unless it connects to something that can store the data, it will disappear when the app is closed.  I think of PowerApps as a User interface to a back end database. To get a better understanding of what you are dealing with here, I suggest that you start with my blog https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/News-Announcements/Database-Design-Fundamentals-and-PowerApps-An...
