Search combo box not working with SharePoint data

Hi,

 

My built-in "Search" combo box (generated automatically by Power Apps) for an app, which has a SharePoint list as the source data, doesn't work properly. For instance, the SharePoint list has these 3 records:

 

ID   Name

1    This is a test

2    B

3    This is C

 

If my Search string is "test", the search result has 0 record. If my Search string is "this", the search result has 2 records.

If my Search string is "1", the search result has 0 record.

 

So, The built-in Search is only looking at the first word in the "Name" field. No other fields are being searched.

 

Did I miss something?

The Items property for Gallery is:

 

SortByColumns(Filter([....], StartsWith(Title, TextSearchBox1.Text)), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending)) 

 

So,  the search results is expected to be as you described.

Of course, you can change StartsWith function with in operator, something like Title in TextSearchBox1.Text, but be aware that will give you a warning message as "in" operator is not delegable in SharePoint. 

For short, you can replace startswith with in to obtain the desired results only for Sharepoint lists with no more than 2000 records.
