Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new canvas phone layout app, and change it to landscape view by default.  Save this app as Best books.

Create a data source listing out the books in the above workbook (you'll need to create a table in the workbook first):

List of books

The first few books in the list.

Create an app with two screens.  The first one should contain a gallery listing out the books which meet a search criteria a user types in:

Books for search box

This shows the 7 books which contain the letters ther in the title.

You can use the CountRows function to count the number of rows in the data source, and the syntax of the Search function is:

Search (Data source name, Textbox, Field to search by)

The second screen should show the book a user clicks on:

The book details

Notice that the title banner shows the name of the book.

When everything is working, save the app and close it down.
