Using Arrow keys to switch between elements in Gallery

Hey 🙂


i can control now the gallery with arrow keys because of TabIndex = 0.


But here I have to press the arrow keys several times to get to the next element or page (as shown in the picture).
Is there a way to get to the next page of the gallery with just ONE click of the arrow keys?
I have read that it should work with the SNAP function, but I can't find it at Power apps.
Thanks a lot!

Hi @Andreas111 ,

As well as the TabIndex, there are some things you can do with SetFocus. - reference is here

You can move to other editable controls on the screen, but I cannot think of a way of doing it with arrow keys (there is no OnLostFocus or OnExit type event in PowerApps)

Have a read, it may give you some ideas.
