Default message when a gallery has no items

I have apps with multiple galleries that depend on search text boxes. I find myself creating labels to appear over a gallery when it is blank. It would be nice if we could set a default message for a gallery when it has no items. Something like, "No items found, please enter a different keyword".

I have the same challenge. Showing a message is not that hard but when are there no records... sometimes it takes a while to retrieve the data; when do you show your message.
And of course the message should be an attribute of the gallery so you can tailor it to your needs.

This is a great idea and should be easy to implement. Can't believe the suggestion for this only came through in 2020 😉


Seems like 2020 might be good for something after all.
