ClearCollect a choice field?

I was following along with @Shanescows videos on making Repeating Tables in PowerApps and I've kinda stumped myself. Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgznk4XlPCo

 

My problem is I deviated from the example provided and I'm not positive how to do so correctly. One of the fields is a drop down. On my button I have the following: 

NewForm(Form3);ClearCollect(SiteVisitCollection, {StateCMSSurveyDate: "", SurveyOutcome: "", SiteVisitandType: ""}); Navigate(Screen1, ScreenTransition.Cover)

SurveyOutcome is the drop down used on Screen1. 

 

The OnSelect of my save button is giving me an error and I don't think it likes how I have SurveyOutcome listed.

 

Here's my save button "OneSelect":

Patch(SiteVisitCollection, ThisItem, {Title:"Title", StateCMSSurveyDate: Value(SurveyDatePicker.SelectedDate), SurveyOutcome: SurveyOutcomeDropdown.Selected}); Collect(SiteVisitCollection, {StateCMSSurveyDate: "", SurveyOutcome: ""})

The error I get when hovering over it is 

The type of this argument "SurveyOutcome" does not match the expected type "text". Found type"Record".

Hi @notj ,

 

I hope you have bound SiteVisitCollection to your dropdown.

 

In the patch formulae change it to below

 

Patch(SiteVisitCollection, ThisItem, {Title:"Title", StateCMSSurveyDate: Value(SurveyDatePicker.SelectedDate), SurveyOutcome: SurveyOutcomeDropdown.Selected.SurveyOutcome});

If you just mention SurveyOutcomeDropdown.selected then you are trying to bind a selected record to field SurveyOutcome (which is wrong). You should give the surveyoutcome value to the corresponding field. You can get the particular field value from SurveyOutcomeDropdown.Selected.SurveyOutcome

 

 

if this answers your question mark it as verified and give thumbsup

@notj ,

 

That's right. If you bind collection with multiple columns to the dropdown then you need to select the partcular column value of the selected record. i.e. dropdown.selected.selectedcolumn.

 

if you bind only one column collection to the dropdown then you can directly use dropdown.selected.value.

Re: ClearCollect a choice field?

So I did SurveyOutcomeDropdown.Selected.Value and it seems to be working so far. Is that the same as doing SurveyOutcomeDropdown.Selected.SurveyOutcome?
