Combo Box Reset

Hi PG:


Just consider to migrate from DropDown to ComBox Box.


I have an issue here:

- I try Button.Pressed to Reset the selected items to "Fnd items" (that is before any item is selected), but it neve works.

- Even using Set to false and Set to true of context variable with Reset = Context Variable, also never work.


Any advice will be much appreciated.


Meantime, the tutorial is unclear of certain application, including:

- SelectedItems


Thanks and have a nice day.


In fact this was working 2 days ago and doesn't work anymore since yesterday, don't know why ! My coding version has moved from 3.18041.20 to 3.18042.20, maybe it is related, maybe not.


This is so frustrating !


I have some comboBoxes for which the Reset works fine, and I can't reproduce this with others comboBoxes on others screens, while applying the exact same configuration ! This is driving me crazy 😞



I had the same problem - even some combo boxes on the same page were working whilst others weren't. Have you tried removing the [] from defaultselecteditems and then re-adding it? That seems to have made my reset button work for me again. 


Still, its incredibly frustrating having to do this every few weeks though!

Yes this works if you delete the [] and you add them again . But for me it works only for the current developping session. If I save and close my work and then reopen the app in dev mode, doesn't work anymore ...


Have you encountered the same stuff ?


Maybe I need to do the modif, save and publish ?

Hi Guilla,


using hpkeong solution,

if you have add button include this to your formula:  Set(myvar,[])

then set your combobox defaultselecteditems to: myvar

I dont suppose you know you you get this to work when using a customised form? My defaultselecteditems is Parent.Default so if i change it, it won't save the data I input 😞

Hi @Anonymous can you kindly create a new thread with your question above? A new thread will give it more exposure. 


Thank you,
