Rename first screen as main screen it will be easy to understand.



First of all, on your Power Apps Screen, Add a Blank Vertical Gallery Control (Insert -> Gallery -> Vertical). Then connect a Data Source as Account (As my records are present in Account Entity) as shown below.




In the below screenshot, you can see all the records are retrieved from the Account entity. Here, your Item property should be your Account Entity name (‘Account ‘).

Select the Gallery and go to the Properties pane. Select the Layout as “Name, Address “. Edit the fields and add the columns as per your choice.




Now to search the fields from the PowerApps vertical gallery, we need to add a search bar on the top of the Gallery. For that, go to Insert -> Text -> Add Text Input as shown below.

The Text input control will insert and it will show the default value as Text. Just remove the Default value and in Hint Text give as “Search by Account” as shown in below screen.

Rename Text input as Search Box for added text box. 



Select the Vertical Gallery control and apply the below Search function formula on its Items property as:

Items = Search (‘Event Registration Details’, SearchBox.Text, “Title”)
