Combo box collectiong from SharePoint

I creaed a collection from SharePoint list.

I want to populate the combobox from one column using the collection.

Current

Items = FloorRoomCol.Room

Reviewing the collection the room numbers are listed. However the combo box fails to show room numbers.

Re: Combo box collectiong from SharePoint

Other than using ClearCollect() instead of Collect() in OnStart that is exactly what I did and didn't have any issues getting the Dropdown to show the Room numbers.  Not sure why its not working for you.

 

Are there any records in the datasource that have blank room numbers?  it could just be sorting that is showing all those first.

Re: Combo box collectiong from SharePoint

I just did a quick POC using the same setup you have.  I'm not experienceing the same issue you are.  Is the Dropdown in a Form that is bound to a datasource?  or is it just on the Screen?

Re: Combo box collectiong from SharePoint

Hello @Pstork1 

 

Thank you for replying so promptly. I really appreciate you doing so. 

 

Combo box isn't bound to the datasource. It's just combo box. 

FloorRoomCol.Room

At start 

App>Collect(FloorRoomCol,FloorRoom)

The reason I create collection at start the user needs to be able to select room number even in areas where device is likely to be offline (blackspots exist in areas where the app is to be used).
