Single Item Gallery selection on Navigation

I have a horizontal Gallery with Show Navigation turned on with a single Label that is formatted to take the entire width of the Gallery.  I can click the navigation controls left/right to step though the records in the Gallery but to update other fields on the screen I need to click the Item to select it. 

 

Is there a way to reduce this 2 step process to a single click so the Item is automatically selected each time the Navigation control is clicked?

 

Thanks, Dan

Hi @danield3 ,

Do you want to change "gallery.selected" by clicking the navigation button?

Actually, I do not support you do this.

Three reasons:

1)there's no property that could record the place where you scroll to in your gallery

2)there's no property that could represent the action of clicking the navigation button

 

For now, the only solution about changing gallery.selected is to click item in the gallery.

 

I suggest you submit your ides about adding a property  that could  represent the action of clicking the navigation button here:

Hi @danield3 

 

I am afraid there is no direct method available to reduce the number of clicks. The reason behind that is, in case the width is more to contain more than one item at the same time, it will require additional measures to track the changes. If you think this should be added as a functionality, please raise an idea on: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

Hope this Helps!

Thanks for the responses Phoebe Liu @v-yutliu-msft  & @yashag2255 ,

 

I'll submit a ticket at https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/support/pro/ticket/

 

Perhaps they can expose something like Gallery.NavigationStep to help with this.

 

If I  had a function to move/perform math on the Gallery.Selected record pointer, I could probably implement the functionality I'm trying to achieve with a button instead.  Although it would be nice to save the screen space and just use something like the Gallery.NavigationClick.

 

Thanks again, Dan
