Newbie - UI Help

Hello all,
this is my first application and I have some problems in project and manage my UI.

Basically my screen is made of:
a scrollable right<->left rectangle with A-Z letters on it; the rest of the screen
(below the letters) must contains some data.

When a user selects a letter, in the screen below must appears a list of strings
(for now it's ok if I can print only the chosen char).

Basically,it is like a standard gallery, but without images: only text.

For the letters list I used a Gallery: I can scroll it, but I have no idea how
to recognize the letter the user clicked on it.
Also, is the Gallery the right choice for my application ?

I am not clear what kind of thing you want to design.
But for the galler control you can use something like below to identify which item is clicked...

Thanks for your reply!
Indeed, I did something as you suggest, but I'm thinking this in not the correct way: too much net bandwith consuming!
As you stop on a letter the program starts immediately to fetch some data and this is not the correct way I think!
