Return search results with and without accents

Hi, 

 

I am working on a App in French so there are various characters with accents (éèàû..). I have a search box set up to filter a gallery. I would like the search results to return words with accents even if the person types it in the search box without, e.g. if they search "Petrochimie" and the name in the gallery is "Pétrochimie" the result is still returned, is this possible? 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi @HFG 

 

What is your formula expression of your gallery currently?

You can use Searchbox.Text in Column Name to achieve that, if you put the words which in the Column Name, it will show.

Could you please reference this:

function-filter-lookup#search-user-experience

Best Regards.

Hi @v-yuxima-msft

 

My formula is as follows: Search(colProj,TxtNomProj_SaisieProj.Text,"TXT_Libelle").

 

The search is working, but I would like to know if when I type a word without an accent whether in the results I can also have items with accents? Eg. Item in gallery is "Pétrochimie" if I search "Petrochimie" is there a way I can I have this item show up or can only exact matches be returned? 

 

Thanks

Hi @HFG 

 

You can also use the formula expression as this

Filter(datasource, Textinput.Text in ColumnName)

If you input the letter in the words "Petrochimie", for example if you input "imie", all the words which contains these letters will be display.

 

More information:

function-filter-lookup

 

Best Regards.

Hi Yumia,

I think you didn't get what the question is here.

I would be very interrested in a solution to this problem too.

In essence, this is what we are looking to achieve:

Search for: resume

Returned results: résumé, resume, etc
