Combo box not showing as value

Hi,

 

I have a combo box that will be in disabled mode. The default selected value will be using a lookup formula. 

LookUp(

        varSharepointResponseList,
        'Response ID' = Gallery1.Selected.'Response ID',
        'LOB Approver(s)'.DisplayName

    )

I am passing the same in item and default selected value.

But in-app instead of the value it shows as 2 items. how could I make visible the value 

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @Soumiya15,

This is an known issue, there is no OOTB function to overcome this.

As @Anonymous_Hippo said, you could make the Combo Box wider, however, if the display name has long long characters length, Combo Box will always show the total of the items selected.

 

As a workaround, consider the Tooltip property:

Concat(ComboBox.SelectedItems,DisplayName,",")Concat(ComboBox.SelectedItems,DisplayName,",")

In general this is only possible if the device used has the ability to translate certain touch gestures to “hover” events. A simple stylus (or a finger) doesn’t necessarily have the resolution to produce anything other than “touched” or “not touched” — and that extra resolution is exactly what would be needed to show tooltips.

 

Best Regards,

Hello @Soumiya15 ,

 

This is because you have selected two values in the combo box. If you increase the width of your combobox both these selections would be visible. Additionally to work around this problem you can create a label/ text box and concatenate all the values to the text box please refer this solution to see how you can do this

 

Hope this helps

 

Cheers

Make sure the "Allow multiple selections" or "SelectMultiple" option on the combo-box is set to false.

For your combo-box's "DefaultSelectedItems" parameter try just removing the result from your lookup:

 

LookUp(

        varSharepointResponseList,
        'Response ID' = Gallery1.Selected.'Response ID'

    )

 

 

Then make sure your display field for the combo-box is set to the approver's display name
