Re: Dropdown default value - set to blank value?

If you see the reply from @Alex_Boom above, they have added a feature that fixes this for dropdowns. ComboBox appears to not have this feature but leaving Default blank and DefaultSelectedItems as [] has the same effect.



FYI though, what you are attempting to do is actually what I ended up doing before the feature, via ClearCollect.


Screen.OnVisible = ClearCollect(FilteredWithBlanks,{ITEM:""},Filter([Table], ITEM = VAR).ITEM)
Dropdown.Items = FilteredWithBlanks
Dropdown.Default = ""

Re: Dropdown default value - set to blank value?

No, it is definitely a bad solution. Because the user can submit/patch that default blank value (or default "Select an Option" value for example) into the database. 
You can use a combobox instead, if you use the onchange attribute carefully 🙂
