Show/Hide delete icon if current user is the creator

I have a gallery to which I added a Delete Icon, and I would like to only show that icon if the current user is the creator of the item.

 

Annotation 2021-09-27 124744.jpg

For these I create a variable OnStart:

 

Set(
    currentUserName,
   Office365Users.MyProfile().DisplayName);

 

Then I added this to the Visible property for the icon:

 

If(IsMatch(currentUserName, ThisItem.'Created By'.DisplayName,MatchOptions.Complete), true, false)

I also tried:

If(IsMatch(currentUserName, ThisItem.'Created By'.DisplayName,MatchOptions.Contains), true, false)

I get a "Regular Expressions Must Be Constant Values" error message. Is there a better way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks in advance.
