Capture trigger input selection from drop-down list of options

I have a SharePoint flow starting with a For a selected item trigger with a text input containing a drop-down list of inputs. I would like to capture the user's selection from that list to compose a string, but I've been unsuccessful. I've tried the following expression based on the Peek Code for the trigger (shown below), but it's not working. What expression should I use in Compose to capture text input selection as an output?

 

 

'triggerBody()['TaskType']'

I solved this myself. I expected the Text input selection to be listed in a different section of the Compose > Dynamic content list, but it's actually listed with the selected item Dynamic content.

@rlengacher from the dynamic contents, you should see a "TaskType", if not, use the expression triggerBody()['text']

Thanks, @krootz I actually found it hiding in the Dynamic content list with the rest of the available inputs from the selected item. I expected it to be listed in different section. 

 

I tried all kinds of triggerBody() permutations, including the one you suggested, but none of them worked.

@rlengacher great! glad you found it!

Use the search dynamic content next time, it will show where it is without you having to scroll and look for it.
