Accessing the SelectedItems of a ComboBox-backed Custom Component

Hi, I believe I have found an issue with custom components. I was trying to build a component around a combo box (even a very basic component with one input, table, property for "items", and one output, table, property for "selected items") and ran into a rather strange problem. When I set up two of these components in a "chain" such that the second one gets its items from the first, the second one throws an error that says this is a circular reference. This issue did not occur when I tried the same scenario but with two plain combo boxes in place of the combo box components. Is there a way to achieve what I'm trying? We are using a library of custom components to more easily apply consistent styling, so we would like to avoid using bare ComboBoxes if possible.

I have also noticed another issue regarding ComboBox components. It seems that if you map an output property (in this case my own "SelectedItems") to the SelectedItems of the ComboBox, Intellisense never updates and instead always expects records that match the default Items you specify. Notice how in the screenshots, it shows the default member of SelectedItems, rather than updating to the new Items I pass in.

Hello @CuriousPAUser,


I am currently facing the same issue. Do you have any updates on this issue? Have you found any workarounds? I would love to hear what you did. 


Thank you
