Choice field to default based on another choice field

Hi,

 

I would like to default a choice field based on another choice field. 

So question 1 has choice A and B, If A is selected then question 2 should default to C, and if B is selected then question 2 should default to D. 

 

I got around this before by changing the choice field to a text field and using the below code.

If(DataCardValue12.Selected.Value = "A", "C"); If(DataCardValue12.Selected.Value = "B", "D")

 

But this time around I can't do that. 

 

Can you please help with the code?

I missed a few commas in my original post.  This will work.  I've tested the code.

 

Put this code in the Default property of the Card.

Switch(
  DataCardValue11.Selected.Value,
  "Regulatory Capital", {Value: "Balance Sheet"},
  "Impairments", {Value: "Income Statement"},
  "Economic Capital", {Value: "Balance Sheet"},
  "Non Financial", {Value: "Non Financial Risk"}
)

 

Make sure DefaultSelectedItems in the ComboBox has this code.

Parent.Default

I will suggest changing from an IF function to the SWITCH function but really you can use either.  The reason your ComboBox is not populating is because it expects a record.  To ensure we are passing a record we must put { } brackets around the value to create a record.

 

Put this code in the DefaultSelectedItems property of the 2nd ComboBox.

Switch(
  DataCardValue12.Selected.Value,
  "A", {Value: "C"}
  "B", {Value: "D"}
)

Hi @mdevaney, thank you so much for replying

 

It doesn't seem to work for me. Can you check if I made a mistake somewhere

Switch(
  DataCardValue11.Selected.Value
  "Regulatory Capital", {Value: "Balance Sheet"}
  "Impairments", {Value: "Income Statement"}
  "Economic Capital", {Value: "Balance Sheet"}
  "Non Financial", {Value: "Non Financial Risk"}
)

 

DataCardValue11 contains the options Regulatory Capital, etc. and I'm doing this in the Item default which has 3 choices Balance Sheet, Income statement and Non Financial risk. 

@MadelineDT
Can you please try putting this code in DefaultSelectedItems property per my suggestion, not Default?

Next, can you please confirm we are grabbing the expected value by putting DataCardValue11.Selected.Value in the text property of a new label.

Thanks for helping @mdevaney !

 

I added it to DefaultSelectedItems property but still no luck. 

 

My text field does grab the expected value
