I have some pick list with 2 hour time frames as DisplayName but the name has to be something Alphanumeric.
I made a little code so the Name TF_05_to_07 is 05:00 to 07:00 as a DisplayName.
The Picklist is in my entity and I have the CDS in my app.
When I create the dropdown I am only allowed to use the Name not the DisplayName.
I really want the users to have a simple time picking time trams not having to use some code that I create. Failing that I'll have to hard code it to the dropdown, which I dont want to do.
It might be a default behavior that the app will use the Name but not the Display name of a picklist.
While when we configure a Picklist, the name is asked to start with a letter followed by alphanumeric or underscore(‘_’) characters. So it is not possible to configure the Name as what you want.
Please consider to submit a request at PowerApps Ideas Forum so that we could select either Name or Display name of a Picklist on an app. I will help collect and report it on my side:https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

Its rather confusing then to have the Display Name feild for pick lists then as this would indicate that this was what is displayed to the user.
From a useability standpoint it would be a nice to have option.
I'll post in the Ideas section.
Thanks for the reponse.
