PowerApps - repeating table RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to recreate the repeating table functionality from InfoPath in PowerApps...

    I have a custom list called "Personal Details" where a user enters their name, address etc.

    I then want a repeating table called previous addresses (with fields for address 1, address 2, town, county, postcode).

    Looking online people seem to be suggesting using galleries, but when experimenting I could only use a gallery for viewing existing data which doesn't work for my scenario as there's nothing to view until the personal details form has been submitted. Ideally the information captured in the repeating element should be in the same list as the "primary data"; I don't mind using a second list that stores the previous addresses if they can link back to the data in the primary form.

    Can this be done in PowerApps? My final solution will also include workflow (hopefully via Flow).

    Or is there a better solution?

  • That link is exactly the article I worked through, but unless I missed something, the gallery is just displaying data, as described in point 6 of this article "filtering the projects gallery to only show the projects that are related to the selected customer".

    In my case I'm looking to input, not display data as at the point of creating a new list item, there is no data to show in a gallery because the data hasn't been input yet! Can a gallery be used to input data? And if it can, and as per the link the repeating data is being stored in a secondary list and a lookup to filter, how does that data link back to the open form? It seems to me that, following Laura Rogers' Customer/Projects example - If I have a new form open to create Customer X, and I'm inputting using a gallery the Projects related to Customer X in a secondary list that will lookup back to Customer X - how can this loookup work when the record for Customer X hasn't been submitted? It semes like a chicken/egg scenario!
