Add drop down box value into text box


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?
