Sharepoint connection for documents - navigating subfolders

I have a canvas app, with a connection to a SharePoint document library. I use clearcollect to retrieve the contents into a collection. As you can see in the attachment, it only brings back the contents of the root folder. I would like to be able to open the folder and view the contents of that folder. Any ideas?

Re: Sharepoint connection for documents - navigating subfolders

Hi @jamess ,

Do you want to display the contents of the subfolder from SP Library ('Shared Documents') within your app?

 

Actually, when you create a connection to a SP Library from your app, it would retrieve all contents within the Root folder, including the subfolders, and these files stored within these subfolders.

 

If you only want to display the contens within the Root folder firstly, and then click the subfolder within the Root folder, then display contents under the subfolder, I think multiple Gallery controls could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following workaround:

Set the Items property of the first Gallery to following:

Filter(MyLibrary2, 'Folder path'= "MyLibrary2/")

Set the Items property of the second Gallery to following:

Filter(MyLibrary2, 'Folder path' = "MyLibrary2/" & Gallery1.Selected.'File name with extension' & "/")

When you select a folder within the Gallery1, then the contents within the folder would be displayed within the second Gallery.

 

Pleae consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.
