Combo-Box works only with IsSearchable = False

Hi Folks,

I my combo-box of Audience (Role)- the items property is dependent on another control (Audience (Function) and a SharePoint list as shown in the items property formula below:

GauravG_0-1620118048922.png

The issue is that the value field works only when the IsSearchable property is set to false. 

Whenever i select True, it doesn't show any dropdown values to select from.

Kindly suggest!

SearchItems is not an exposed property.  It is internal to a Combobox and you cannot directly interact with it.

It is derived from the Search Fields and it uses the Search function to get it's results for narrowing the list while searching.

Your input is always welcome and appreciated!!  @Anonymous and I had been working on this control in another post and it took some wrangling to get what he initially wanted.  

By the way...good morning!! 😁

Thanks @RandyHayes ,

Good Evening to you. I actually realised the SearchItems when I checked a control (hence removing the reference).

Funny...if you look a couple messages back in this post, I did the exact same question!  Wasn't even thinking about it.

Hello All,

I came across the same issue and am wondering if there was a solution identified?

In my case I am using the following code in my "Items" property to provide the user an option to add another product to a ComboBox (approach copied from here: https://www.matthewdevaney.com/create-a-dropdown-with-an-other-option-in-power-apps ).

 

Ungroup(
   Table(
     {DropdownOptions: Choices([@’Activity Tracker’].Products)},
     {DropdownOptions: [“Add Product”]}
   ),
   “DropdownOptions”
 )

 

But when I switch on "IsSearchable" the combobox stops working and I get the error message that a bracket is missing in my code.

The SearchFields property says: ["Value"]

Any workaround would be much appreciated.
