Combo box to display selected text

Hi

 

I have added a combobox to a datacard in a form to display relevant choices, but i would like it to display the selected choice.  the issue is, the selected choice is stored in a single line of text field.

 

is there a way to set the defaultselecteditems to show the item that is stored in the single line of text?

 

i was thinking ThisItem.SingleLineField.Value but that didn't work

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks

Alistair

Hi @neill_long ,
Assuming the Items of the Combo Box return an output of .Value (ComboBoxName .Selected.Value - change to the actual output if not) - - The DefaultSelectedItems would be

{Value: ThisItem.YourTextFieldName}
