Selected Item

Hi,

I'm trying to find a way so that when I submit a new item(using a form), the new item becomes the selected item in the gallery. I'm also using the TemplateFill to highlight a selected item. Is it possible to achieve this?

 

Thanks

Dan

If you try Reset('GalleryName') instead of Refresh() then it will select the first item in the gallery or at least it did in the quick test I did.

You could try sorting the gallery by created (descending), so that the new item becomes the first item in the list and when a gallery refreshes it by default selects the first item. You might also need to refresh the data source that is being used in the gallery after the form has been successfully submitted.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply. The gallery is already being sorted. Actually the user has the option to sort both in ascending and descending.

I agree that when sorting in descending order, it does put the new item on top of the gallery list however it does not become the selected item not even if I refresh the source unless the user would have selected the first item before making a new entry. 

 

This is also a little bit of an issue when sorting the gallery. When a sort is applied a previously selected item doesn't remain selected. So for example, if I select the third item in a gallery and apply a sort, the selected item will shift to a different row however the selection/template fill will remain fixed to the third row. So a selection always seems to remain fixed to a row rather than an item.

 

Thanks

Excellent. Reset did the trick.
