Add drop down box value into text box

Hi,

Very new to powerapps, and what i am trying to d is add a text box do display on a page but containing a value from a dropdown box. For all my other items im displaying on the page i simply just use "ThisItem.'Value'" but when im doing this for the dropdown box one i get error

 

"This property expects text values, but this rules produces incompatible record values"


Any ideas?

Hi @richhowe 

The syntax you would use to retrieve the selected dropdown box value would look something like this:

YourDropdownControl.Selected.Value

If this doesn't work, post a screenshot and we can advise you of the correct formula.

I didnt realise putting .value at the end would solve it
