  • Create your Parent Gallery ” the outer Gallery ” and Bind Data to the Outer Gallery.
    • Add Flexible height gallery in order not to take fixed template size and expand according to the height of the inside controls.

  • Set the “Items” property to the data source you want to display in the outer gallery.
GroupBy( TaskManagementList,"Task_Status","ID")
  • Insert an Inner Gallery “Nested gallery” Inside the Outer Gallery.
    Position the inner gallery within the outer gallery in a position that makes sense for your design.
  • Bind Data to the Inner Gallery “Nested Gallery” as shown bellow

  • In the height property of the nested gallery set the flowing formula to change the height according to the number of items displayed in the gallery by multiply the number of items * the template size of the gallery.
  • 80 is the template size of the nested gallery

Nested galleries allow you to present data in a hierarchical or parent-child relationship, making it easier for users to navigate and understand data structures.
