Understanding Nested Collections

Hello,
I am having a hard time trying to understand how nested collections work in PowerApps. I have a very nested collection and want to extract information and display it in the gallery. I looked around on the internet but I only found basic examples of how to extract data.

 

This is how my collection looks like:

ClearCollect(NestedListExample, {List01:{List01A: {List01AA: {List01AAA:{List01AAAA: "Book_ID01"}}, List01C: "Random"}, List01B: "ABC"}, List02: "Random info", List03: "Random info"}, {List01:{List01A: {List01AA: {List01AAA:{List01AAAA: "Book_ID02"}}, List01C: "Random"}, List01B: "ABC"}, List02: "Random info", List03: "Random info"},{List01:{List01A: {List01AA: {List01AAA:{List01AAAA: "Book_ID03"}}, List01C: "Random"}, List01B: "RRR"}, List02: "Random info", List03: "Random info"},{List01:{List01A: {List01AA: {List01AAA:{List01AAAA: "Book_ID04"}}, List01C: "Random"}, List01B: "ABC"}, List02: "Random info", List03: "Random info"})

level01level01level02level02level03level03level04level04

level5level5

 

If this makes sense,  I want to display all the List01AAA items IF List01B== “ABC” in a gallery. 

 

Any examples on how to extract information at different levels from nested collections would be helpful :). 

 

Thank you

Hi @VP200 ,

Do you want to display all the List01AAA items in a Gallery when the List01B== “ABC”?

 

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:1.JPG

Add a Gallery control within your app, set the Items property to following formula:

ForAll(
       Filter(NestedListExample, List01.List01B = "ABC"),
       List01.List01A.List01AA.List01AAA
)

Add a Label control within above Gallery, set the Text property to following:

ThisItem.List01AAAA

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

 

More details about the ForAll function, please check the following article:

Hi @VP200 

 

Not sure why this complex nested structure

 

but try this on button click or something

 

ClearCollect(colNested2, Filter(NestedListExample.List01,List01.List01B ="ABC"));ClearCollect(colNestedFinal,ForAll(colNested2.List01,List01.List01A.List01AA.List01AAA))

 

This will give you colNestedFinal which you can use in Gallery
