Retrieve data from Firebase and display in listpicker

Hello everyone, I'm quite new to app inventor and I'm currently stuck on how to retrieve data from Firebase in order to display it in listpicker. I have manually stored the data via Firebase dashboard and the snippet below is the structure of the database. Can anyone guide me on how to proceed with this?

Thank you.

Is the seatid a dictionary?

@Alpha2020 No, I did not initialise it to be a dictionary.

Then what?

I initialised it to be a list.

What you want to retrieve

I would like to retrieve the data (T1a, T1d) and display it in a listpicker.

Try This-

Let us say you have your firebase project setup like this and you are using the built-in Firebase component blocks, and your firebase rules are read:true / write:true:

To get the data in seatid:

If you only want to return the items that contain "T1", you can either use the filter bar, or create a sublist from the tag value:

Your use of numbers as tags is problematic, compared to using the obviously unique seat IDs T1a, T1b, etc. as tags.

I would use this hierarchy for a booking application:

* venue name
  *   seats
    *   "T1a": true
    *   "T1d": true
    *   "T2a": true
...

and for specific events, use

* venue
  * event info
     * event seats
        * "T1a": true
        * "T1d": true
               ...

Beware of the difference in encoding of data structures loaded from AI2 into Firebase compared to data added manually via the Firebase console. Also, AI2's Firebase component has been known to confuse dictionaries with numbers as tags with arrays (lists).

That is how Firebase does it if you leave it to its own devices....

Welcome @safe_kung,

Please do not reply in topics which are a year old. Reply as a linked topic.

Also, when you use Firebase, you are warned of the following consequences.

FirebaseDB is an experimental feature which may change in the future or break. Packaged Apps built with this component may not function into the indefinite future.

Did you save your rules by clicking on 'Rules Playground'? What is your ProjectBucket for Firebase?

In order to work you should set your firebase's project bucket to STATUS .

What do I have to do?



The poblem is that your didn't add data in firebase from the app so in listview you will get only first word. In order to get all if you add data in firebase you should put data in the form of "\"your_data_here\"

si quesera obtener solo los elementos o values en un Label1 y no en una ListView1
como podría plantearlo?

Sorry, the translation is not very good. Can you ask in a different way ?

I would like to get all the values ​​and not the tags.
on Etiqueta5 o Label5

everything inside the green circle
