Seems that the focus for item number 2 and downward within the gallery is lost, if you create a group of labels/icons withing the first item/template.
I added 2 labels and an icon, segmented to be visible only at a specific value, usually hidden.
I made sure that they where reordered to the back of gallery/template.
The original labels and text where forwarded at the front, here I added an icon to perform an on select action.
Everything working so far.
I then grouped together the part that should stay hidden. (a couple of labels and an icon).
Made sure that the group was at the back, and that it had the same visible check as the items inside the group.
And then for some reason, only the first item would react on hover and click for that "on-select" icon.
That icon still at the front for that gallery/template.
Ungrouped the "hidden" items, and the focus was back. The on-select icon worked again.
For the sake of troubleshooting I had 2 hidden groups in that gallery.
Also the gallery/template itself had an on select action that was only working without the groups.
If I understand correctly:
I will attempt to replicate this issue. In the mean time, I have some questions and I would like to suggest some best practices.
Please let me know what you end up doing.
Thanks for your response, you almost got it.
When I do the onselect/check for item value to display the grouped labels/icon they are visible. But its not possible to click them.
So they trigger on what I want (they are visible), but its not possible to click them. Seems disabled/like something is in the front of the group. They don't respond to "hover" change color either.
If I ungroup them, I can interact/click them as I should.
Notice that the first item in the gallery is working as expected all the time, its just the second item and downwards thats not working.
When its like this I cannot click "icon3_2" for item/element 2 and downwards, when its visible in the gallery.
When its like this (ungrouped) I am able to click "icon3_2" for item/element 2 and downwards, when its visible in the gallery.
Grouping should not have any effect on the app when opened by other users. This could be a bug with grouping in Studio.
Have you tried saving and publishing the app, and then "playing" it from web.powerapps.com?
I have not had time to look into this again, but 99% sure that it behaved the same outside the studio as well.
I just ungrouped it to get the app working.
This was meant as a notification to your PowerApps team, as this could be a bug.
