Cascading drop down edit form shows different values

Hi,

 

I have read many posts from the forum but nothing seems to work for my issue.

 

I created a cascading dropdown on PowerApps. I managed to pass the user selected value back to the Sharepoint List by modifying the lookup field's data card properties. However, when I click on edit form, it shows me the default value instead of the value shows in Sharepoint list which is the user selected value

 

Also, where can I change the default value for the drop down control.? In the drop down control, it shows default as "1", I tried to set it like this "" but it still shows me value....

Hi @lavint ,

Could you please share a bit more about the Segment field in your SP List? Is it a LookUp type column?

Could you please share a screenshot about your app's configuration?

Further, do you want to set a Default value within the Segment Dropdown box?

 

If the Segment field is a LookUp field in your SP List, I think there is something wrong with the formula you typed within the Update property of the Segment Data card in your Edit form. Pease set the Update property of the Segment Data card to following:

{
  Id: LookUp(SegSubsegMapping, Title = ddSegment.Selected.Result, ID),
  Value: ddSegment.Selected.Result
}

If you want to set a Default value within the Segment Dropdown box, please set the Default property of the Segment Dropdown box to following:

ThisItem.Segment.Value

Note: I assume that the Segment Dropdown box is within the Segment Data card in your Edit form.

If the Segment Dropdown box is not within the Segment Data card in your Edit form, please set the Default property of the Segment Dropdown box to following:

Gallery1.Selected.Segment.Value

Note: I assume that you use Gallery control to list all records of your SP List.

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.
