I have an app that uses drop downs but I want to switch to combo box for more control. How do I work with them so that data selected from my new screen can be viewed or edited on one of those screens? I've configured the Items Property the same as the drop downs but not having any luck seeing the values selected from the combo box in view or edit mode.
Hi @trishmalloy ,
Do you want to change drop down to combo box in PowerApps?
Well, I'm afraid it's not supported to just change the drop down's settings to make it become combo box.
You could only delete all the drop downs and insert combo boxes.
Since your field's data type is choice, I suggest you set the combo box's Items:
However, if you want to change combo box to drop down, it will be more easier.
In combo box, there are these two settings:
If you turn off these two settings, the combo box will change just like drop down.
In drop down, there are no settings like this.
@v-yutliu-msft I still need some help, please. I deleted the DropDown control from the card and inserted a Combo Box control and made sure the Items property on the New Workout screen, Edit Workout screen and View Workout screen were the same Choices(Listname.fieldname). I can choose a selection from the Combo Box when I create a new workout and I can view the selection from the View Workout screen, but it doesn't show up on the Edit Workout screen.
